  1. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    My first Thai curry in a whisk (e) y ...
    The pot still spices are nicely rounded off with coconut and ginger.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A wonderfully sweet, almost perfumed nose.
      Ginger, violet, fresh coconut milk.
      A little oak, flavored with vanilla.
      Toffee and caramel.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The malt is creamy on the tongue and fills the mouth with the taste of a green Thai curry, caused by a strong coconut note, ginger and pot still spices. Black pepper is dominant, along with cinnamon and a hint of anise.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long and creamy.
      Coconut and ginger become weaker, the wood note stronger, a little sherry can still be guessed at.

    From a blind sample.
    Not balanced at all, too spirity and green. Not for me.
    • Nose
      65 65
      Spirity, green, grassy, thyme, green apples, vanilla pastry, a bit lactic.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Ground black pepper, pears, green apples, malty, pastry, apricot, grassy, lime, citrusy, lemon peel, mineral, grapefruit.
    • Finish
      50 50
      Awful, very spirity - feels as if I was sipping vodka! Apples, pears, citrus peels, crystallized ginger.

  4. Dr. J. Russell scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Wonderfully balanced whiskey with fruit notes, a velvety body full of elegance. An Irish whiskey with all the benefits of triple distillation

  5. maltandgrains scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      78 78
      Alcoholic, dried fruits and some degree of paint thinner. Honey and vanilla.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Heavy sherry-influence, dried fruits but the base of this whiskey is noticeably different from Scotch, that I most often drink. General sweetness, with honey and vanilla.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium-long, vanilla, coffee. Nice, balanced and subtle. A little woody.

  6. Balticsailor68 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Hard to find, discontinued limited edition of Tullamore Dew with 55% cask strength.
    Really nice and smooth nose and taste.
    Get even better with some drops of water.
    A great whiskey and collectible bottle due to its limitation.

  11. bull10298 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Tullamore Phoenix is a high-strength, non-chill-filtered variant of the popular
    William Grant-owned Irish brand, and according to the distillers, “This special
    limited edition is a triple-distilled blend of all three types of Irish whiskey;
    golden grain, malt and pure pot still whiskey.” It has undergone a period of
    finishing in ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. Sweet on the nose, with icing sugar,
    coconut, sultanas and Sherry, plus a sprinkling of white pepper. Mouth-coating,
    with sweet orchard fruit flavours, cloves, developing honey, caramel, and a kick
    of ginger. Fruit fades slowly in the finish, and slightly tannic, peppery oak
    develops.
