Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey Crock 750ml
Tullamore Dew is the original blend known the world over for its smooth and gentle flavour. This mild blended whiskey has spicy, lemony and malty notes with charred wood undertones giving a soft, buttery, rounded flavour that lingers in the mouth. The specially created ceramic crock is sealed with a cork and comes with its own porcelain stopper.
Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey is an old bottle of Tullamore Dew. The crock is an old stoneware jug and is larger than the more commonly available old crocks in the same design. The labelling describes it as being distilled in Dublin. This therefore dates from a period when the whiskey was made at the old John’s Lane Powers Distillery and will have been made some time between the mid-1950s and 1970s.
Perhaps the most easily recognisable and popular gift item in the range is the Tullamore Dew crock. This specially created ceramic jug with a porcelain stopper is modelled on an original design that harks back to the brands early days in the 1820s. Filled with Tullamore Dew’s original Irish whiskey blend, the traditionally shaped refillable jug is made by the renowned Wade Ceramics factory.
he early floral yet biscuit flavour reflects the grain whiskey, while the soft spicy notes can be attributed to the pot still whiskey in the blend. The citrus flavour is complemented by the malt. Finally notice the nutty or even marzipan note combined with distinctive vanilla in the finish – imparted by the sherry and bourbon casks used in maturation.
Light, sweet citrus and green apple combined with vanilla undertones.
Early fresh fruit leads to a definite light spike followed by some toasted wood which evolves into a delicious vanilla sweetness.
Put the glass down as you sense the almost buttery mellowness.
