The first thing that I purchased after I turned 21 was a handle of Evan Williams Whiskey and a Black and Mild. Needless to say, I was on a budget at the time, and my tastes were not too terribly cultured. One thing has remained true through the years since that date; I like whiskey. I have tended to gravitate towards the cheaper brands and styles of whiskey (Ten High is another example), but picking up a bottle of Tullamore Dew may just break me of that. This Irish Whiskey is typical in terms of alcohol content â€“ 80 proof, or 40% alcohol by volume â€“ but is very atypical in terms of the flavor and taste that it has. Sure, it will feel warm in oneâ€™s stomach after taking a swig, but the flavor of the whiskey is muted to allow individuals to actually taste Tullamore Dew instead of having Tullamore Dew burn the back of oneâ€™s throat. As was the case with Zen Green Tea Liqueur, Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey is very dangerous in that sense. Individuals could easily down shot after shot without having the same rawness that other whiskeys would provide. Overall, Tullamore Dew is the best whiskey that Iâ€™ve the chance to actually taste, and would suggest it even to individuals that are not normally fans of that type of alcohol.
