The Dubliner Irish Whiskey has launched The Dubliner Smoked Stout Whiskey, the first release from the brand’s Beer Cask Edition Series. The new collection is part of a collaboration with one of Ireland’s leading craft brewers, Rascal’s Brewing Company.
This news collaboration saw the award-winning Dubliner Irish Whiskey share their ex-bourbon whiskey casks with fellow Dublin neighbor and independent Irish craft brewer, Rascal’s, with the brewers filling the casks with their high quality, unfiltered and unpasteurised beer.
Following bottling, the casks were returned to the Dubliner team, with each cask refilled with The Dubliner Irish Whiskey, allowing the flavours of the beer, having soaked into the casks, to seep into the three-year-old whiskey.
Bottled at 40% ABV, The Dubliner Smoked Stout Edition the whiskey offers notes of baked oat cookies, honeyed sweetness and fresh cinnamon spice, followed by big creamy maltiness and subtle toasty smokiness.
“We are excited to launch the Dubliner Smoked Stout Irish Whiskey in Ireland. This is the latest in our flavour work on the brand. Dubliner Irish Whiskey is committed to making whiskey accessible for anyone to try. Big on flavour, it is sure to appeal to whiskey and beer drinkers alike.” Bronagh Hunt, Global Brand Director, Irish Whiskeys at Quintessential Brands.
More releases from The Dubliner and Rascal’s are set to come in the coming months.
In April, The Dubliner whiskey rolled out a new design and marketing campaign. Distilled in the heart of the Liberties district of Dublin, the award-winning Irish whiskey brand isn’t changing what’s inside the bottle. The new logo and bottle design forgo traditional packaging in favor of an updated contemporary look and feel.
