Tullamore D.E.W. Wins Big for Irish Whiskey at the International Wine and Spirit Competition
For the first time since 2009, an Irish whiskey has won the Worldwide Whiskey Trophy at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), with Tullamore D.E.W.’s 18-Year-Old Single Malt taking the top honour. This triple distilled Irish whiskey is a blend of grain, malt, and pot still, the three different types of Irish whiskey, creating a unique, complex palate every whiskey enthusiast is sure to enjoy.
Finished in four casks, including bourbon, port, oloroso sherry, and Madeira wine, the distinguished complexity of 18-Year-Old Single Malt drew great commendation from the event judges, who praised its flavour and balance, calling it elegant and outstanding. The whiskey also underwent a rigorous chemical analysis as well as organoleptic judgement, proving that it holds its own under every level of scrutiny.
Tullamore D.E.W. – A Brief Outline
Known as the original triple distilled, triple blended whiskey, Tullamore D.E.W. was established in 1829 and has grown to become the second largest-selling brand of Irish whiskey in the world. This whiskey’s name is derived from its location in Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland, as well as the initials of the general manager, and later owner, of the original distillery, Daniel E. Williams.
After working his way up from a humble stable boy, Williams brought electricity and motorised automobiles to Tullamore as the distillery owner, as well as various other technological innovations to the distillery, allowing him to carefully craft a remarkable whiskey known all over the world for its distinct character and smooth flavours.
The Award Winner
Launched in 2016, the 18-Year-Old Single Malt edition of Tullamore D.E.W.’s exceptional range offers a unique flavour that culminates in an exceptionally warm, satisfying finish. The triple distilled blend is finished in four different casks for at least six months, and draws on the spice of the pot still, the sweetness of the grain, and the fruitiness of the malt to create its award-winning taste.
Tullamore D.E.W.’s 18-Year-Old has a rich, oaky nose, with notes of caramelised fruit, woody spice, and malt that are perfectly complemented by the smooth, mellow flavour of vanilla oak, cinnamon, baked apple, biscuit, and toasted marshmallows. A truly marvellous whiskey, Tullamore D.E.W.’s 18-Year-Old Single Malt is one every whiskey lover should try.
