Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Finish
Tullamore D.E.W. // Ireland
Available beginning October 2017, this rum finished whiskey is a triple-distilled triple blend featuring single malt, single grain, and single pot still whiskeys in its makeup. These whiskeys were matured in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. Then the whiskey finishes its maturation in first-fill Caribbean rum barrels which formerly held Demerara rum. It’s bottled at 43% ABV.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.

"The nose is sweet with gentle fruit notes (think caramelized banana and orange peel). Moderately full body, rum notes come through more on the finish. Mild spices, some vanilla. Good little alcohol bite being that its 86 proof which helps the sweet factor from getting out of hand. This is a nice bridge between the whiskey and rum worlds; almost like a cocktail in itself. Good value and a fun release."
