Tullamore DEW 12 Special Reserve (Irish Blend, 40% abv)
Nose: Honey and oak in addition to fruity notes such as grape and strawberry. It creates a creamy feel.
Palate: Sweet aromas predominate on the palate as on the nose. Dried fruits, honey and chocolate are accompanied by spicy aromas. Body and creamy in texture.
Finish: Medium length. Hazelnut and oak in addition to fruity aromas.
Overall: Standard Expression of the Special Reserve 12 expression of the brand original and Phoenix I had the opportunity to taste it. I think Phoenix has a special place among these 3, so let's keep it separate.
When we compare Special Reserve 12 with Original, I can say that Special Reserve is a slightly more layered and bodied whiskey. But if we evaluate it in terms of price-performance, I must state that I can prefer the Original to the Special Reserve 12.
