Tullamore DEW XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish

Tullamore DEW XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish, a triple distilled whiskey with Irish heart and Caribbean soul.

Tullamore DEW XO Caribbean Rum Cask FinishTullamore DEW have unveiled a new expression in their travel retail line-up, the Tullamore DEW XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish.

Starting with their original triple distilled, triple blend, triple wood matured Irish whiskey, the Brandís whiskey-makers have given it an additional finish in first fill XO Caribbean rum casks, which they tell me has created a smoothly satisfying flavour with layers of sweetness and tropical notes.

John Quinn, Global Brand Ambassador for Tullamore DEW, said: "At our Tullamore Distillery, we are constantly experimenting with our whiskey making. Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish was just one of many trials inspired by our work on the Beauty of Blend, but immediately stood out to our whiskey makers as being something truly special."

He continued: "Many styles of Caribbean rum were tested, but carefully selected first fill XO Caribbean rum casks, previously used to age Demerara rum, imparted distinctive sweet tropical fruit and warm spice flavours to our original blend. The combination of Irish heart and Caribbean soul balance beautifully."

Tullamore DEW describe the new whisky as, "Shining with a golden amber glow. On the nose, the notes of vanilla and oak overlaid with citrus, ripe bananas and delicate spice bring you on a journey to the heart of the Caribbean. Incredibly smooth and rich, the creamy mouthfeel brings out the deliciously deep caramel and banana notes with dates and raisins evident. The finish is long and sweet with bananas and caramel lingering."

Presented in a 1 litre bottle and bottled at 43% ABV, Tullamore DEW XO Rum Cask Finish is a triple distilled, triple blend, triple wood matured, Demerara rum cask finished whiskey, available to purchase in select outlets around the world from an RRP of $29.99. You will also find a selection of Tullamore DEW whiskey available from specialist online whisky shops such as Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange
