Bushmills has announced the 2017 release of its two rare, aged singled single malts.
The small batch of 16 and 21-year-old single malts were both matured and finished in three different cask types to 'create uniquely rich flavour profiles' at the Old Bushmills Distillery in Co.Antrim.
According to Colum Egan, master distiller, Bushmills Irish Whiskey, “To craft malts of this age and quality calls for all our expertise and knowledge.”
A select number of casks of Bushmills small-batch, triple-distilled malt whiskey are matured to this age for release in these annual limited editions.
Egan explained, “By carefully nurturing a small number of casks in our warehouses so that they age in the optimal conditions, we can draw layers of exquisite flavours from the wood, ensuring they are perfectly balanced with the unique distillery character of the unique Bushmills spirit made from 100% malted Irish barley.”
The Old Bushmills Distillery is Ireland’s oldest working distillery.
