Bushmills Malt 21 Year Old Irish Whiskey

[heading subtitle=”Bushmills Malt 21 Year Old” title=”Irish Whiskey”][row cols_nr=”2″][col size=”8″]With a heritage rooted in authenticity and quality, Bushmills Irish Whiskey is produced, aged and bottled at Ireland’s oldest working distillery in the village of Bushmills in County Antrim on the far north coast of Ireland. The Old Bushmills Distillery uses 100% malt barley to make triple distilled malt whiskey, which is what creates the rich, mellow and distinct flavour that is the house style.

Bushmills Malt 21 Year Old is a rare whiskey and is in scarce supply with only a limited number of casks in the Bushmills warehouses. It’s matured in bourbon and sherry barrels for 21 years‚ before being married together for two years in a madeira-infused cask. The result is dark chocolate and caramelised toffee aromas and a sip that clings to the palate before releasing a magical burst like mint. This is one of Bushmill’s very best Whiskeys.

Bushmills Malt 21 Year Old Whiskey Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Warm fruit and Madeira take a while to develop as the glass slowly warms in your hand. Hints of fudge and chocolate.
