Analysis

This new 14-year-old Tully offers the twist of being created with a quartet of oak casks styles. The Whiskey was first matured in ex-Bourbon casks, as traditionally done with the brand, and then a portion spends seven months in Olorosso Sherry casks, another portion spent six months in Madeira casks, while another portion spent five months in Port casks. The sum of the casks in marriage with the classic triple distilled Irish Whiskey has found a wonderful sweet spot at 14 years.

How to Enjoy

This is not a cocktail Whiskey — the subtle and complex flavors deserve to be treated with care so serve neat with just a splash of water.
