Bushmills 16 Year Old Single Malt

70 cl

The 16 year old Bushmills builds on the soft, smoothness of the 10 year old and adds some very nice fruity characters. The whiskey is initially aged seperately for 15 years in both bourbon and sherry casks then these are married together into port wood for around a year of extra finishing. The port wood adds some delicious flavours of red fruits, some sweetness and hints of candy and chocolate. Like all Bushmills whiskeys it is very smooth but this one has a sweeter, fruitier edge than them all.

Serving Suggestion
Serving Suggestion Bushmills malts are fantastic neat whatever the age. However, adding a drop of water helps release the aroma into the glass, really bringing to life the fruity spices. Obviously an ice bucket would have the same effect and make your Bushmills a tad cooler.
