Tullamore D.E.W., the Original Triple Blend Irish Whiskey, has launched their Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish. Starting with their original triple distilled, triple blend, triple wood matured Irish whiskey, the Brand’s whiskey-makers have given it an additional finish in first fill XO Caribbean rum casks, developing a smoothly satisfying flavour with layers of sweetness and tropical notes.
Internationally recognized with multiple awards, including Gold medal at The International Spirits Challenge 2020 Awards, XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish further cements the Brand’s reputation as the leader in Irish whiskey innovation. Created for the growing numbers of whiskey explorers worldwide, this new edition is finished in carefully select barrels previously used to age Demerara rum. It represents the perfect marriage of two of the great historic traditions in spirit distillation: Irish whiskey and Caribbean rum.
Shining with a golden amber glow, Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is a blended whiskey of exceptional flavour. 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.
