Tullamore D.E.W. has won the Worldwide Whiskey Trophy at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2018, taking home the top prize for its 18 Year Old Single Malt.
The world’s second largest Irish whiskey brand, Tullamore D.E.W. has just won a much-coveted award that has not been won by an Irish whiskey since 2009.
The Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Year Old and 18 Year Old Single Malts are characterised by their rare, four cask recipe, finished in Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry, Port and Madeira casks; giving the malts a uniquely rich and mellow taste.
The Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Year Old Single Malt was also awarded a Master at the 2016 Global Irish Whiskey Masters competition, and Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Year Old Single Malt has won Gold medals at the 2016 Global Irish Whiskey Masters and International Spirits Challenge Awards 2016.
Working on the Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Year Old Single Malt was a two-year mission to craft an extraordinary whiskey that embodies the complex character, subtle sweetness and triple distilled smoothness that define the best of Irish Single Malt. The quality of the aged stocks is comparable to the very best Highland single malts, but the triple distillation and our four-cask finish are what set this whiskey apart as one of the best in the world. – Brian Kinsman, Tullamore D.E.W. Master Blender.
With deep malty notes, rich and oaky with caramelised fruits and woody spice on the nose and the velvety smooth taste of vanilla oak intertwined with cinnamon, baked apple, toasted marshmallows and a biscuity sweetness, this 18 Year Old Single Malt is something special.
Note: Tullamore D.E.W. 18 Year Old Single Malt is a 41.3% ABV triple distilled, single malt whiskey, available now in a limited volume release.
