Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whisky is Wowing Them with an XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish

Tullamore D.E.W., the Original Triple Blend Irish whiskey, has launched Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish in the UK and I was there to taste it at the launch!  On Monday night, I was invited to one of my favorite bars, Nine Lives, to experience Tully XO.

Tully XO starts with the original triple distilled, triple blend, triple wood matured Irish whiskey, then it’s given an additional finish in XO Caribbean rum casks, picking up some sweet and tropical flavors along the way.

Tullamore Tasting

During the tasting, I learned about the role that the Irish played in the early development of rum in the Caribbean. In the 16th and 17th centuries more than 50,000 Irish emigrants arrived in the ‘West Indies’, where it is believed their experience of whiskey distilling became blended with local expertise, playing an instrumental role in the inception and growth of the Caribbean rum business.

Tullamore DEW cocktails

The bar geniuses from Homeboy in North London came down south specifically for the event, bringing with them a slew of amazing cocktails. The Bananasaurus Rex tasted like the best Banana Milkshake I could ever imagine!
