Bushmills Millenium Malt 1975

Availability: In stock

The Bushmills 1975 Millenium Malt, is a private bottling which was never intended for the retail market. A selection of ex-bourbon casks were laid down in 1975 filled with Bushmills Malt Whiskey, and bottled in late 1999 under the watchful eye of Master Distiller, David Quinn. These single cask bottlings have receive great acclaim over the years, although very hard to find.

The whiskeys themselves vary from cask to cask, although they all had the same maturation of 24 years before bottling, and are all bottled at 43%abv.

We have tried various casks over the years, and have always been pleased with the results. A generalised tasting note could be:

The nose is filled with wonderfully diistinct Bushmills Barley, layers of soft sweetness, from the caramel undertones to the balanced dried vanilla. The palate delivers an explosion of flavour, leaning heavily on the barley-ful nature of the spirit, tonnes of fruit, with an exciting array of spices. Extremely full-flavoured with a long spice filled finish.

More information:

The Bushmills Millenium Malts were an innovation by the Old Bushmills Distillery which were released during their time as part of the Irish Distillers Ltd portfolio.

In 1975, there was a selection of ex-bourbon casks filled with Bushmills Malt whiskey and set aside only to be bottled for the Millenium. Private investors were then invited to purchase the full casks, which many did, either on their own or as part of syndicates. They were promised a yeild of at least 200 bottles per cask, which would be custom labelled with a name of their choosing.

Although, these whiskeys were never intended for the retail market, many people down through the years have sold on their bottles to retail outlets or on auctions. A small number of casks went unnamed which makes the bottles all the more valuable in our opinion.

There is also known to be a number of bottles labelled as 'The Angel's Share', this was to mark when a cask had yielded more than the required 200 bottles.
