Day One: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown

DEC 1 – Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Year Old     41.3%     Cost = $120-130     Score:  A-

Nose:  fruity sweet, peach, apricot, citrus, brown sugar, vanilla, fruit cocktail syrup from the can, delicious nose

Taste:  an orange-citrus tang, dark fruits, caramel with a touch of spice, really pleasant

Finish:  medium-long, nothing off-putting with this whiskey, if there is a weakness it is on the finish – wish it were longer

Overall:  consistent – have tasted multiple times over the years, really enjoy this dram; I always recommend this Irish single malt that has been finished in oloroso, port, and madeira casks
