Bushmills 16 year old
An award-winning 16 year old Irish single malt from Bushmills based in Northern Ireland. Aged in three different cask types: bourbon, Port and sherry maturation imparts notes of fruit, nuts and spices – a great example of the influence of different cask maturation. The brand has managed to retain its small batch philosophy for over 400 years, which is wonderful.
Nose: A classic Irish nose of honey, yoghurt and tinned stone fruit, this also has a lovely cassia bark character which develops in the glass.
Palate: Spiced and rich with juicy summer fruits, Christmas spices, pine oil, manuka honey and peaches in syrup.
Finish: Thick and syrupy with notes of red berries and Golden Syrup.
