A special edition bottling from the famous Irish distillery, Bushmills.
This dram honours the distillery’s 400th anniversary, and was originally produced in 2008.
The bottling contains a blend of Irish malt whiskies (including some that uses malt that has been lightly toasted to give a crystalline appearance) which have been aged in a mixture of American oak and Sherry casks. A small amount of grain whiskey is also present.
The final product delivers notes of almonds, apple peel, marmalade, caramel, sweet malt, dried fruit, fruit and nut chocolate, earthy vanilla, charred oak and a subtle hint of woodsmoke.
A really impressive whiskey, and a fitting tribute to one of the world’s oldest distilleries.
