If you can’t resist keeping up with the latest Irish whiskey release, here is one you will want to stock permanently. The Dubliner Irish Whiskey released a limited-edition 10-Year-Old Single Malt.
Master Distiller Darryl McNally was recently in Washington, D.C., during a national tour and brought a bit for people to taste. The whiskey was a hit during the event at The Dubliner, a D.C. institution (once voted one of the most authentic Irish pubs in America) that’s been serving great Irish food and drink for more than 30 years.
What makes it worthy of a drink or two? First, the limited edition is a single malt produced with care and attention by McNally, who was the distiller at Bushmills for more than a decade. His skill and desire to bring Irish whiskey back to its glory days are the impetus behind creating a classic style that is approachable, just like the Irish people. The moment you taste this lovely whiskey, you’ll agree that McNally is right where he belongs and has found his home.
The distilling is done the old-fashioned, laborious way in copper pot stills. The slow distilling highlights the best flavors and textures to create a smooth whiskey, free of any burn and with heightened aromatics. The Dubliner is an homage to the city of Dublin and bears the name the city’s people use to refer to themselves.
“We are delighted to launch a limited-release single malt, which has been distilled in the great tradition of Dublin whiskey-making, [in] the United States. We lay the whiskey to rest for 10 years in casks that previously held Kentucky bourbons and carefully hand select each cask to give a smooth, rounded finish that lingers long on the palate and in the heart. There’s no city like Dublin, [and] no whiskey like The Dubliner,” says McNally.
The Dubliner 10-Year evokes the past 500 years of distilling that have made Dublin a destination for spirits-lovers. It’s made from 100 percent malted barley and develops dark, compelling flavors from the time it ages in Kentucky bourbon oak barrels. The distillery says The Dubliner is like its namesake people: It is approachable, has loads of personality, and resonates with rich character. I think you’ll agree that Irish whiskey deserves the accolades some reserve for Scotch whisky once you taste this distinctive Irish whiskey from the “Home of Good Cheer.”
The Dubliner 10-Year Single Malt will be available in more than 20 U.S. markets including New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Colorado, Texas, and Washington, D.C. The single malt, at 42 percent ABV, is currently available in 750ml bottles with a suggested price of $49.99. This is just one product in The Dubliner range that is a fan favorite. Other offerings include the Dubliner Whiskey and Honeycomb and The Dubliner Irish Whiskey.
The Dubliner 10-Year-Old Tasting Notes:
If you are after aromas, this whiskey perfumes the air with spicy notes of vanilla, honey, and allspice and a touch of sweetness. The body, smooth and silky, lingers on the palate to reveal deep character, with hints of cocoa and honey blended with vanilla, and it gently caresses your tongue with nutty toffee notes and yet finishes dry and clean, leaving you wanting more.
