From the oldest licensed distillery in the world, this excellent 'everyday' whiskey is the foundation of Bushmill's portfolio. A blend of triple distilled single malt (aged at least 10 years) and Irish grain whiskey (aged at least 5 years) in bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks. The nose shows fresh-cut apple skin, seeds and meat. It is inviting whiskey rich with spicy oak notes, full malt, clover honey and vanilla. The flavors follow leading with honey, vanilla, beer, hard candy and evolving up to a sapid burst of toasted oak. The finish is tart, flavorful and warming; it lingers long enough to invite you to enjoy another taste. This is good whiskey, try it neat but it is perfect on ice or in a cocktail.
