Bushmills 21 Year Old is a marriage of single malts matured for at least 19 years in hand-selected Oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels, then finished in Madeira casks for a further two years.
This unusually long finishing period allows our single malt to patiently mellow, mature and pick up deeper notes of ripe fruit and dried raisins from the fortified Portuguese wine casks. The 21 Year Old is only crafted in limited numbers and each bottle is numbered.
Colour: Deep mahogany
Nose: Rich aromas of fresh honey and ripe summer fruits combine with delicate notes of sweet hazelnuts and cacao
Taste: Deep rich flavours of dark chocolate and toffee precede notes of vanilla sweetness, toasted nuts and just a hint of charred oak
Finish: Long and delicate, synonymous of the subtle flavour journey of this unique triple wood single malt whiskey
