Old Bushmills Distillery was founded in 1784, although the labels and the bottles bear a much earlier date – 1609. It was then that a local landowner, Sir Thomas Phillips, was granted a royal licence to distil whiskey. The distillery’s history, marked with numerous closures and reopening right from the very start, was recommenced for good when it had been rebuilt after a fire in 1885. It used to be a part of Diageo, but it changed owners in 2014. Now it is a part of the Jose Cuervo stable.
Bushmills 16yo Single Irish Whiskey is an exceptional composition of spirits matured in three types of wood – ex-bourbon, ex-sherry, and finally they were married together and filled into port pipes for the last stage of their maturation. The bottle on offer here is an older version, bottled in the early noughties.
Nose: Heavy and sweet, with caramel and distinct port overtones, a hint of fruit (pears and orange rind), some oakiness, and furniture finish.
Palate: Fuller and more pronounced than one could expect from triple distillation, with fruity notes, some oakiness, honey and port.
Finish: Medium length, sweet, fruity – mainly dried fruit.
