Full press release follows.
TULLAMORE DEW IRISH WHISKEY® ANNOUNCES NEW
TULLAMORE DEW 10-YEAR-OLD SINGLE MALT
Legendary Irish Whiskey
Debuts Its First Single-Malt Expression
DUBLIN, IRELAND — Tullamore Dew®, the distinctively smooth, legendary Irish whiskey, is proud to announce the addition of Tullamore Dew 10-Year-Old Single Malt, the first single malt Irish whiskey in the brand’s 180 year history.
An exceptional addition to Tullamore Dew’s award winning Irish whiskey portfolio (the traditional blend, 10-Year-Old, & 12-Year-Old), the new Tullamore Dew10-Year-Old Single Malt bottling is double-distilled and patiently aged for balance and smoothness. Medium deep amber gold in color, it displays intense fruity notes with spice and complexity. The distinctively rich flavor comes from carefully monitored maturation in Old Bourbon, Dry Oloroso Sherry, Madiera and Port casks. Wonderfully rich on the palate with a fruity and gentle finish of nutty, sherry notes, every sip evokes its pure Irish character.
A special bottling of only 400 cases will be available in the US for the remainder of 2009, making this a must have for any Single-Malt aficionado. Tullamore Dew 10-Year-Old Single Malt will be available nationally in 2010. SRP is $39.99.
