What is Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey?

Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey is best enjoyed by sipping it slowly with just a small splash of water added to it that will allow the flavors and aromas to open up. It is a typical Irish whiskey that is smooth with a maltiness to it that makes it easy to drink. You will find Tullamore Dew to have a lemongrass finish to the taste and perhaps that it is more appetizing than other Irish whiskeys.


Aged in oak casks until it is matured, Tullamore Dew has a flavor of barley that is given to the spirit by the drying process of using enclosed kilns that are watched carefully by the producers. Many whiskey connoisseurs enjoy Tullamore Dew and find it to be a more sophisticated Irish whiskey because of how smooth it is. It may not be as popular as other more well known brands of Irish whiskey, but it will be sure to impress even the finest palate.

Also know as a Hot Toddy, this drink is a great drink to serve at your next holiday party or winter dinner gathering with friends. It is best made in a large batch and requires using a stove to heat and dissolve the sugar.

You will need to peel and slice the lemons and then place the peel into a large non-reactive saucepan. Then add the sugar, cinnamon sticks, cloves and 3 cups of water to the saucepan. Heat the saucepan over medium-high heat on the stovetop and stir frequently to dissolve the sugar. Once the water to reaches a boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer for ten minutes. Strain the mixture and then return to the pan. Add the whiskey and heat but do not let the mixture boil. Serve in Irish coffee glasses with a slice of peeled lemon in each. This recipe will makes about eight servings if you are using Irish coffee glasses.
