Tullamore D.E.W., the second-largest selling Irish whiskey in the world, is making two more single malt expressions available to U.S. consumers.
Tullamore D.E.W. 14-Year -Old and Tullamore D.E.W. 18-Year-Old limited edition bottlings are being released this month at retail prices around $70 and $110, respectively. They join Tullamore's 10- and 12-year-olds that made the brand known to Americans.
The brand, owned by William Grant & Sons, triple distills and triple blends its whiskies from all three types of Irish spirits -- pot still, malt and grain. They also are finished in a mix of used American white oak bourbon, Spanish Oloroso sherry, port and Madeira casks.
“We have a treasure chest of outstanding aged single malt at Tullamore D.E.W.,” said John Quinn, Tullamore’s global brand ambassador, in a prepared statement. “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.”
