| Bushmills Malt 16 (Years) Irish Whiskey 750ml|
Bushmills Malt 16 Years Old is a premium, rare single Irish malt whiskey. Unique "Three Wood" finishing adds elements of depth and flavor to the already clean, non-smoky taste of Bushmills Malt Irish Whiskey. This exceptional malt whiskey is matured in three different wood barrels for unparalleled taste and quality. The whiskey is first matured in American bourbon barrels and Spanish Oloroso sherry butts for at least 16 years. While lingering in the bourbon barrels and sherry butts, the spirit develops toasted wood, vanilla and sweet nutty flavors. The malt whiskey is then vatted and married for many months in large old port wine pipes. Here, a nice finishing touch of sweet wine character is acquired, and all of the flavor elements mature and mellow together.
The "Old Bushmills" Distillery, the oldest distillery in the world, makes its home in the north of Ireland, a place of rugged, untamed beauty. At Bushmills the art of making whiskey lies not in the blending, but in the distilling and in the careful maturation which takes place in sherry and American oak casks and in port wine pipes. All component whiskeys are distilled and matured by them under their own control.
At the "Old Bushmills" Distillery, fine Irish whiskey is still made as it has been made for centuries. Whether you prefer the original Bushmills , Bushmills Malt 10 Years Old, Bushmills Malt 16 Years Old or Black Bush, they have an Irish whiskey that's made just for you.
