One of Ireland's most widely distributed whiskeys, Tullamore Dew was first distilled in 1829 in the small town of Tullamore in County Offaly in the heart of Ireland. Today, more than 2,500,000 bottles are bought each year in over 80 countries. Perhaps the lightest of all the Irish Whiskeys, Tullamore Dew is very popular in France where it is pronounced 'tous l'amour' although the origin of the name is far less romantic. One of the distilleries most successful directors, Daniel E. Williams one day decided to add his initials to the product and Tullamore 'Dew' was born. Williams even coined the advertising slogan 'Give every man his dew.'

Triple distilled, Tullamore Dew is about as mellow a drink as one can attain to without venturing into the world of liqueurs. Indeed, Irish whiskies are noted for their silkiness, which sometimes borders on being liqueur like. The problem with Irish whisky is taking it sanely and in moderation. Used improperly the effect is just as bad as stuffing on too many starchy foods, taking no exercise or disliking our neighbour. Used properly, one divines the full sense of the old saying 'Irish eyes are smiling.'

Other reviews... Pale golden amber color. Caramel, dried reed, and golden raisin aromas. A round entry leads to dryish medium-bodied palate with warm buttered caramel, toasted nuts, and delicate spice. Finishes with a nice, even caramel and spice fade. 40% Alc./Vol.
