Whisky Reviews for Tullamore Dew 1948 CA

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    This ultra rare whiskey from the long gone Daly's Tullamore Distillery (closed in 1954) was taken from a 42yo cask which was discovered at William Cadenhead which issued 41 miniatures out of it in 1991. Tasted with Aby in cross comparison with the Tullamore 41yo 1949, 65,3% at Irish Extravaganza.
    • Nose
      Lots, and I realy mean lots, of sappy oak. Too much tannines? Of course, but it is still very enjoyable after 42 years old. Orange marmelade, tangerines. Meaty aroma's. Some honey. Later on more on pine and eucalyptus. Tobacco as well. It's (literally) historical and amazing.
    • Taste
      A rough resinous attack at first sip. Also very spirity (64,5% after 42 years old!). Truck loads of cedar wood and mint with a metalic edge. Chilli-peppers. Allspice and caraway. Hints of diesel-oil, rubber, plastic at the background. Chicken masala. Raisins and pure chocolate. It's all very intense and overwhelming. The oakiness is just about bearable and defuses a little to let in hints of bold and robust pot still characteristics.
    • Finish
      Long and dry. Bitter almonds and dark espresso coffee. Spices of black pepper and nutmeg. Cloves. Menthol.
