Tullamore Dew Cider Cask Finish

19th June 2015

Dust off your passport for the Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Finish travel retail exclusive.

Ireland is very well known for both its quality Irish cider and Irish Whiskey, well Tullamore DEW has brought them both together with their latest addition to the Tullamore Dew whiskey range with the release of the travel retail exclusive Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Finish.

Tullamore say that this is the world’s first cider cask finished Irish whiskey where the whiskey is finished in casks which previously contained pressed apples for several months.

Due to the seasonal nature of the Irish apple harvest, Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Finish will have limited production each year, were it will be made only between September and November each year. This means that the volume will only be 3,000 9 litre cases per year.

John Quinn, Tullamore DEW Global Brand Ambassador, commented; "To create Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Finish, we select the finest apples which were then freshly pressed to begin the journey of small-batch cider making. The pressed apples were then held in oak casks for several months."

He continued; "As the cider fermented, the tart-yet-sweet notes infused the bourbon casks, creating a layered complexity of nose and taste. We then siphoned all the fermenting cider, replacing it with precious Tullamore DEW Irish whiskey for a further three months of maturation."

Bursting with a light, golden amber glow, Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Finish tastes as rich as it looks. On the nose, the fresh, leafy, crisp green apple scent and sweet maltiness brings the senses on a journey – straight to the heart of Ireland. The smooth taste is distinctive – soft and mellow, with a lovely balance of oak, creamy malt and sweet, fresh apple notes. This light-bodied whiskey, with a fruity vibrancy, offers the perfect balance of quality whiskey with added intrigue. The sweet, lingering taste carries subtle fruity notes and the final result is a richly rewarding, new taste experience for curious whiskey enthusiasts.

Tullamore DEW Cider Cask Finish is a 40% ABV triple distilled, triple blend Irish whiskey, available exclusively at Global Travel Retail outlets around the world from May 2015 for a limited time only.

You will find the complete range of Irish whiskey including Tullamore DEW whiskey available from The Whisky Exchange
