Bushmills Malt Single Malt Irish Whiskey 10 years old 750ml
Found on County Antrim's rugged coastline, the village of Bushmills is home to Ireland's oldest whiskey distillery. Official records stretch back to 1608, when the area was granted its license to distill. Over 400 years later whiskey is still being made in Bushmills, thanks to the experience and craft we've passed from generation to generation. We couldn't make our whiskey anywhere but here. Our water, drawn from the river Bush, flaws over beds of basalt rock, the same rock that lends its unique character to another famous local attraction - the Giant's Causeway. The casks selected for aging our whiskeys are also essential, so we keep close ties with cask-makers in Spain, Portugal and America. Once shipped to the Bushmills distillery the casks are filled and left to mature, working their magic to give our whiskey its enjoyably rich, mellow yet distinct flavor. This BUSHMILLS 16 year old single malt is matured in three different woods. Sherry and bourbon casks are used for the first 16 years, before finishing in port wine barrels. This unusual maturation gives our 16 year old its ruby red color and robust personality. Toffee and sweet spice and followed by praline, honey and toasted nut aromas and a deep finish with jammed berries and dark chocolate.
