Tullamore D.E.W. has announced the launch of its new single malt range, comprised of Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Year Old Single Malt and Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Year Old Single Malt.
Both Tullamore D.E.W. single malts are characterized by their rare, four cask recipe, which sees the whiskey finished in Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry, Port and Madeira casks. Both malts are said to boast a rich, balanced and vibrant flavor enjoyable to both single malt enthusiasts and fans of Tullamore D.E.W.’s core range alike, with a long-lasting sweet finish and notes of ripe apples, sweet citrus and hints of tropical fruit, all enveloped in vanilla oak.
“We have a treasure chest of outstanding aged single malt at Tullamore D.E.W. While much of this gets used for our core triple-blended range, the opportunity to release a limited amount for the enjoyment of single malt enthusiasts was too exciting to pass up. The four cask finish adds a rich depth of flavor and perfect balance, while allowing the spirit’s true character to shine through,” commented John Quinn, Tullamore D.E.W.’s longtime Global Brand Ambassador.
Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Year Old Single Malt (MSRP: $69.99 / 750mL) and Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Year Old Single Malt (MSRP:$109.99 / 750mL) will be introduced as limited releases in the U.S., beginning in September 2016. “There is a growing appetite for single malts in the U.S. market, and we’re looking forward to showing consumers how much Ireland and Tullamore D.E.W. has to offer in this category,” says Paige Parness, U.S. Senior Brand Manager for Tullamore D.E.W.
The two new single malt releases join other recent innovations to the Tullamore D.E.W. range, including Tullamore D.E.W. Trilogy and Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask Finish.
