Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a carefully crafted blend of old Irish whiskeys – full of complex flavours, perfectly married to give a sophisticated drinking session full of depth, character and maturity. It is a deluxe blend with "a full, smooth, well-rounded whiskey, combining maltiness and pot still character. Sweet spicy notes overlay rich woody background from the bourbon casks used in maturation". The whiskies in the Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve have a very high concentration of pot still and malt in addition to grain whiskies, triple distilled between 12 and 15 years ago from unmalted as well as malted barley. It is a very fine aged whiskey with more complexity coming from the additional aging. All the whiskies in the blend are matured in old Bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, slowly reaching their perfection. The sherry cask finish gives a sweet nuttiness to the taste. It also has pleasant spicy back notes.
