Bushmills Anniversary 1608, Irish Whiskey

700 ml, 46% abv, Ireland

In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the original licence to distil granted to the Bushmills area, the Bushmills Distillery has released this special, limited edition blended whiskey, ‘Bushmills 1608’.

True to the history of Ireland’s oldest working whiskey distillery, Bushmills 1608 is a unique blend of tradition and innovation. It is a superiorly smooth, flavorful, melt in your mouth whiskey. This whiskey owes its creaminess to a specialty barleycorn malt that takes on a crystalline appearance after a light toasting. The bottled 1608 is a blend of Bushmills malt whiskies (a selection from those aged in either American oak or Spanish sherry casks), a small amount of Irish grain whiskey and the crystallized malt.

“The nosing passes find notes of almond paste, straw, brown butter, nougat, dark toffee, worn saddle leather and canola oil. Rich flavors of caramel, cocoa, and malted barley at entry, midpalate adds flavors of tapioca, old honey and butter cream on top of the intense graininess. Finishes malty sweet, buttery, oily and multilayered”.

Description

NOSE : The aroma is typical of Bushmills — rosy and fruity — but is joined with a core of olive oil, meaty fruit and honey.

PALATE : Starts out with big dabs of honey and goes to fruity hard candy. Then sharp cheese shoots to the roof of the mouth before the whiskey settles back with a woody, toffee, bourbon notes.

FINISH : Very long flavors of wood and honey.
