12 Year Old Special Reserve

Our 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a carefully crafted blend of old Irish whiskeys. They say with age comes wisdom, or in this case, complexity, character and maturity - one of the reasons why this truly unique whiskey has been so highly praised by whiskey connoisseurs around the world.

Tasting notes

Like Tullamore D.E.W. Original, Tullamore D.E.W. 12yo Special Reserve is a triple distilled blend of all three types of Irish whiskey. However, it has a high proportion of pot still and malt whiskeys, matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, for 12 to 15 years. A very fine aged whiskey with great complexity.
  • Nose

    Early spice accompanied by red wine while a nice nuttiness follows. A hint of citrus can also be noted.

  • Taste

    A deep robust taste with spice and linseed oil giving a creamy body and powerful flavour. Sherry notes are evident with a real depth of cinnamon and vanilla.

  • Finish

    The finish is long and rich with a creamy sherry, dark chocolate and almond taste lingering.


Our specially aged, distinctively matured 12 Year Old Special Reserve has been awarded 17 Gold Medals across the world over the last 15 years.
