After the grand reveal of the exclusive Causeway Collection (comprising of 10 single malt whiskies) last month, Irish brand Bushmills is here with a 30-year-old limited-edition spirit that is bound to impress, much like its counterparts.
The American Oak Cask single malt has been matured in oloroso Sherry butts and Bourbon barrels and thereafter finished in new American oak casks for 16 years. A luxurious spirit, it has been bottled in September this year at 48.4% ABV and is a fine expression of whiskey craft and supreme quality.
Commenting on it, Bushmills master blender Helen Mulholland said, “Maturing it for 16 years in the new American oak casks has allowed the sweetness to soften gradually, making it creamier and velvety smooth in texture. I love its tropical fruit notes and hints of spiced coconut alongside the warm and reassuring wood notes.”
He further added, “I’m immensely proud of how we’ve been able to create such sensational waves of flavor in a 30-year-old whiskey. Like the whole Causeway Collection, it’s a celebration of our passion for single malts, our rare and unique casks, and our 400 years of whiskey-making heritage.”
100 bottles of the Bushmills 30-year-old new American Oak Cask single malt will be available for sale at Dublin and Cork Airport in Ireland onward December 17 for $851 per bottle. The remaining 332 bottles of the limited-edition spirit will be released in 2021. Well, Christmas just got better for those traveling to Ireland!
