Description

Tullamore Dew Phoenix 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.

Following distillation, the whiskey is matured in traditional oak casks until it reaches its peak flavor. Then, a portion of the whiskey is double-barreled, or finished, for an additional two years in Oloroso Sherry casks. Once the whiskey has been finished, it is bottled at 110 proof without the use of chill filtration.  

Tullamore DEW Phoenix earned the Gold Medal at the Irish Whiskey Masters Competition in 2013. "Tullamore DEW Phoenix pays homage to the incredible spirit of the people of Tullamore and reaffirms our commitment to the town and its people," says the distillery's brand manager, Cindy Wang. 

Tasting Notes

Tullamore DEW Phoenix Irish Whiskey has a creamy and rich aroma, with hints of vanilla, molasses, toffee, brown sugar and spicy ginger. The aroma gives way to notes of malted barley, cinnamon and woody spices on the palate, which are complemented by a sweet undertone of honey and red fruits. The finish is long and smooth, with a warming touch.
