Product Notes:
Bushmills was first granted their license to distill 400 years ago this year (2008) and so have released the limited-edition "1608" to mark the anniversary. Distilled with crystal malt—a special malted barley called "crystal" because of its bead-like appearance. Regardless of whether its crystal or diamond cut, this whisky still delivers the exceptional smoothness and sweet toffee-like notes you expect from Bushmills. Creamy and mouthfilling with lots of raspberry and currant fruit, this is a great Irish whisky for the collector. A blend of three different types of whiskey—malt whiskey, grain whiskey, and a third component which is said to be a malt whiskey produced from crystal malt. Brewers and homebrewers will know crystal malt well, being a slightly caramelized version of malted barley. Its rich texture suggests a decent malt content for a blend. Layers of sweetness (honeyed vanilla, rummy molasses, toasted marshmallow) are balanced by toasted nuts, dried fruit, and dark chocolate. Very dynamic and with plenty of grit. Smartly bottled at 46% ABV.

About Estate:
A delicious whisky. The sweetness and nuttiness of Bushmills whiskey and of Madeira are an enjoyable double-act. The whiskey has to work hard to avoid being upstaged.

About Varietal:
Tasting Notes:
Nose: Distinctive, full bodied aroma, with lots of character - fruity, malty and nutty sweet sherry flavours all intermingling.
Taste: Complex, assertive, well flavoured, slightly sweet. Sherry succulence, melt-in-the-mouth maltiness, with just a hint of toasted wood in the background.
Finish: A whiskey to linger over, to be enjoyed straight or as an excellent base for whiskey cocktails.
Special Recognition: Bushmills Black Bush "Highly Recommended" "A full, sweet nose brimful with nutty butter toffee and a hint of sherry wood. Refreshingly green mid-palate, this is a very soft and elegantly balanced whiskey that floats over the palate. A complex amalgam of malt and sherry wood bound together by a rich smooth fruitiness." --Decanter Magazine
