Tullamore Dew Limited Edition Phoenix Irish Whiskey

The Phoenix

From Tullamore Dew

The Phoenix is an expression of the great history of our town and a celebration of our people. In 1785, Tullamore witnessed a devastating hot-air balloon accident. The resulting blaze nearly destroyed the town but immeasurably strengthened her people. Since that day, they placed a phoenix in the town’s coat of arms. Driven by their positive spirit, the town’s renaissance in the ensuing decades saw the establishment of the Tullamore distillery in 1829.

Tasting Notes
This special limited edition is a triple distilled blend of all three types of Irish whiskey; golden grain, malt and pure pot still whiskey. It is characterised by its high content pot still whiskey finished in old oloroso sherry casks and comes to you at 55% ABV. Tullamore D.E.W. Phoenix is a medium bodied whiskey, with distinctive sherry notes and pleasantly spicy creamy pot still whiskey flavours nicely balanced.

Nose
Warm and spicy initially, then rich, toffee, vanilla notes become evident. The characteristic leafy, malty notes of Tullamore D.E.W. are enriched with deeper, toasted oak aroma and a hint of sherry nuttiness.

Taste
The higher strength tingles on the tongue leaving a spicy pot still flavour. Addition of a little water releases layers of caramel sweetness, delicate floral notes and oak tannins.

Finish
Long lasting with a lingering warmth. A perfect balance of oloroso sherry sweetness and spicy creamy pot still.

Glengoyne 12 Year Single Malt Highland Scotch Whisky

Glengoyne 1291.5 Points, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible

“Salty, Sweet, lightly fruity, one of the softest deliveries on the market:the fruit, gristy sugars, and malt combine to melt in the mouth. There is not a single hinnt of firmness, a graduation of spices and vanilla. Delicate and delightful. The nose has a curiously intimate feel, but the tasting experience is a wonderful surprise.”

Barr Hill Vodka

Barr Hill VodkaOur relationship with the land and honey bees inspired and gave birth to this vodka. The soul of a beekeeper is filled with the rhythms that flow through the seasons, reflecting the changes in the flowers, rains, sun and all the forces that are a part of this beautiful mystery. Barr Hill Vodka is crafted from honey at our micro-distillery on the banks of the Lamoille River in Caledonia Country of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Honey is cold fermented for several weeks then carefully distilled in our custom stills. The spirit which emerges reflects the essence of the soil and flowers visited by the bees.
