Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve Irish Whiskey
Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey is made from three different grains, including malted barley, unmalted barley and corn. Once the grains are harvested, they are milled and mashed with hot water before being fermented in wooden washbacks. During fermentation, the grains' sugars are converted into alcohol, creating a strong yet sour beer called wash. The wash is then triple distilled through three copper-pot stills: a wash still, a low wines still and a pot still. Through each distillation process, the alcohol content and flavors of the whiskey are intensified.
Tullamore Dew 12 Year Old Special Reserve Irish Whiskey is a triple distilled blend of all three types of Irish whiskies, each aged from 12 to 15 years. In particular, the pot still and malt whiskies — aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks — play outsized roles in this blend, contributing to the whiskey’s unique character and complexity.
