The 16-year-old expression from Northern Ireland’s Bushmills Distillery.
Matured in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, this is finished in ex-port barrels.
With lots of fruit, this is quite a big, creamy whiskey. The barrels have been pretty active.
The historic Bushmills distillery was founded in 1784 (though license to distil was granted in 1608) and is the second largest in Ireland, behind Midleton. The core is the third most sold Irish whiskey, behind Jameson and Tullamore DEW.
The distillery is located in the Bushmills village, on the northern coast of Northern Ireland. Along with the Giant’s Causeway rock formations, the distillery is a key attraction of the town.
