Tullamore Dew: Whisk(e)y Wednesday presented by The Cove

Bite and Booze: Whiskey Wednesday: Tullamore Dew
Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey
Whisk(e)y Wednesday returns to Ireland with Tullamore Dew.  This blended Irish whiskey is very reminiscent of traditional triple distilled Irish hooch.  Pleasant citrus on the nose with hints of pear and apple and just a little heat.  The taste presented a blend of spice and floral tones that were very well balanced.  The whiskey finished wonderfully smooth with an excellent symphony of flavors and enough complexity to bring a smile to your face.  This should be the Irish whiskey to take shots with, or by all means to sip.

Tullamore Dew

81.5 Average Score

Whisk(e)y Wednesday is a blog post series on Bite and Booze presented by The Cove. Check out The Cove in Baton Rouge, LA to browse their selection of over 200 whiskeys (including bourbons) and 325+ Scotch whiskys. Whisk(e)y Wednesday is created and rated by the hosts of Raise a Glass. Scores are marked for Nose, Taste, Finish, and Balance and Complexity using our own propriatary scoring system. Marks are then added and averaged, leaving us with a final score out of a 100 point scale. Our scale should be looked at on the full range of 0-100 rather than an academic range where 70 is passing and anything less is failing. A 50 should be considered a very mediocre whisk(e)y while anything below 10 is absolute horse piss and anything above 90 is rather extraordinary.
