Bushmills Single Malt Irish Whiskey 16 year old
Aged for a minimum of 16 years in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon seasoned casks, then finished for several months in Port Wine barrels, Bushmills 16 Year Old is a unique maturation which imparts distinct notes of juicy fruits, nuts and spice, as well as a hint of ruby redness.
The smashing bouquet features delightful notes of toasted wheat bread, oatmeal, black raisins, trail mix, roasted chestnuts, bacon fat, sweet butter, ruby Port and prunes. Entry is peppery, moderately sweet and smoky; midpalate features succulent tastes of dark chocolate-covered cherries and strawberries, honey and smoked nuts. Finishes elegantly and clean, with deft traces of smoke and cocoa.
