Tullamore D.E.W. Phoenix is an expression of the great history of the town Tullamore, Ireland, and a celebration of its 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.
Tullamore D.E.W. Phoenix Irish Whiskey is a blend of golden grain, malt, and pure pot still whiskey, and finished in Oloroso sherry casks. This whiskey is dark gold in color. The nose on Tullamore D.E.W.’s Phoenix is a blend of fruit and grain with apricot, apple, raisin, and honeysuckle combined with malt, cereal grains, caramel, and sherry. All this is backed by clove and solid oak which act as unifying factors for the aromas. Absolutely divine.
