This distinctive Irish malt whiskey is aged for 16 years in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon casks, and then matured for several months in Port wine barrels, a unique maturation which imparts distinct notes of juicy fruits, nuts and spice, as well as a hint of ruby redness. Big robust nose of treacle and sweet spice. Full-bodied palate of honey, caramelised fruits and toasted nuts. Long deep finish, distinct berry and dark chocolate notes.
Bushmills 16 year old Single Malt Irish Whiskey
"This robust single malt whiskey is matured in Sherry and Bourbon casks before finishing for several months in Port barrels. Look for a balanced mix of creamy caramel, maple, dried apricots, a subtle raspberry jam note and a rounded, spicy finish." 95 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, March 2014
