Restrained apple & blackcurrant leafy nose. Lovely silky palate. Soft and spicy finish.

A very nice Irish blend, unique as it is a triple blend (Malt, Pot still and Grain), very light and not overly complex but I don't expect a staggering amount of complexity from a blend, definitely one of the best Irish blends I've tasted. A word of caution with this whiskey! it goes down very easy and you may end up driking more than you intended (although that's not necessarily a bad thing).

A smooth blended Irish whiskey. Not one to use with mixers as the whuskey drinks and deserves to be drunk neat. Very palletable and leaves you thinking i'll just have one more! Highly recomended..

Good to see and hear and feel all the love Tullamore Dew is getting here! I've had TD in many countries around Europe and have always been delighted by its consistency. For me this one really shines when drunk neat and with all the time in the world. A great relaxant. So is, for example Lagavulin 16. But you don't want L 16 "all the time"...neither does your wallet.

This is a decent Irish whiksey. Compared to Jameson, it's a bit sweeter and has some more vanilla notes to it whereas Jameson is dryer with more green fruit notes to it. Jameson can be a bit sour too at times and this not the case with Tullamore Dew. In can certainly see why this is such a popular whiskey in the low-countries, Germany, France and eastern Europe. Recommend!

Jameson's. Jameson's Jameson's I have for years loved Jameson's. And I still do but about a year ago my wife thought I should try the cheaper Tullamore DEW Smooth, rich with a beautiful after-taste. If she surprises me with a bottle of Jameson's I am happy. If she surprises me with a bottle of TD I am delirious. Those who prefer Irish to Scotch MUST try Tullimore DEW although it has caught up in price to Jameson's.

Vanilla and toffee all the way. Some pot still character on the nose. A very short after taste. Well overpriced for quality of whiskey.

The best value ever and certainly the smoothest most drinkable Irish! A sort of silkiness and an unusually nice mouth feel. A lot of folks with lofty fancy tastes will look down on it but I've recommended it many times only to get fantastic reviews. Give every man his dew!

I was looking for a smooth whiskey and spotted on the shelf of my local Canadian Liquor store Tullamore Dew. As my grandmother was born in Tullamore, county Offaly. I decided to buy a bottle. I found it to be one of the best tasting Whiskeys I have ever had.

like most things in life, if you like it, its good.

I love the design of the bottle and the label. This whiskey is mainly targeted at north-west Europe and does well in Germany and the Netherlands. In Ireland itself you won't find it. Jameson and Powers are far better blends.

Not much to lose if you don't like it, perfect if you are new to whiskey.Not much smell, short aftertaste and smooth.
- Andreas Molin, 25th Mar '11
For its price, its extremely drinkable!

I brough two bottles of Tullamore Dew on the ferry from Dublin one for myselfand one for a present, I kept them both for myself I have aways said Island Park was my choice but I now think Tullamore Dew is equal

This was my first step into the world of Irish whiskey, and still one of my favorites. I often go back to Tullamore Dew between my experiments with pricier brands, and I am always surprised how well it stands up against more upscale competition. There are more expensive whiskeys that I like better, but in terms of value for money, this whiskey is unmatched. A very fulfilling experience at a great price.

A friend of mine who is a bartender turned me on to this. Great basic whiskey. While not perhaps the fanciest, it has a certain low key charm to it, very smooth, very drinkable.
- anonymous, 1st Jun '10
I had this both neat and on the rocks, it was fantastic. The best Irish Whisky in my opinion, and more approachable than Jameson and Bushmills.
- Keegan, 28th Mar '10
Fantastic Irish Whiskey! I've been drinking world-wide whiskies all my adult life and Tullamore Dew is, in my honest opinion, the finest Irish whiskey available on the market today! 10/10!
