It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day! Do you know what whiskey you’re drinking to celebrate? I can suggest Tullamore Dew!
At a special dinner in Chicago’s Allium, US Ambassador Tim Herlihy explained all the inner workings of creating a smooth, delicious whiskey. Tullamore Dew builds a true Irish whiskey by producing a flavor with three varieties of grain, three distillations and a blend of all three types of Irish whiskies: pot still, malt and grain.
We tried several different whiskeys and without a doubt, I could say that my favorite was the 12 Year Old Special Reserve. With a high proportion of pot still and malt whiskies, this resulted in a smooth and nutty taste. Hints from the sherry casks gave the whiskey a smooth taste but the dark chocolate, almond and vanilla make this easy to drink without feeling heavy.
Have a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day with Tullamore Dew (but don’t have too much)! For more information on Tullamore Dew’s legendary Irish True, visit tullamoredew.com. Slainte!
