Well‚ it takes a special dedication to create the Bushmills 16 year-old‚ that and lots of patience. Two whiskeys are matured for 16 years‚ one in a bourbon barrel and the other in sherry‚ and then they are married together in a sweet port infused cask. It’s a marriage made in heaven!
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - Intense, yet enticing, aromas remind one of orange-glazed duck, roasted apple, dried dates and cinnamon. These lead seamlessly into the palate where dark-roasted coffee beans mingle with game meats, burnt earth and dried apricot. Very deep and complex finish.
