Bushmills Irish Honey Whiskey
Bushmills Irish Honey Whiskey is a limited edition blend that was created by mingling Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey and a touch of honey to bring out new, rich flavors. Bushmills Irish Honey Whiskey is smooth with honeyed orchard fruit on the nose, spicy fruit and honey on the palate and a warm, subtle honey finish. Serve Bushmills Irish Honey Whiskey neat, in iced tea or an Irish Coffee.
Grain whiskey reserved for Bushmills Original is slowly matured for a minimum of five years in American oak casks before blending with Irish Single Malt whiskey to produce this original blend.
Bushmills 16 Year Old
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.
Bushmills Single Malt Irish Whiskey
The Irish penchant for whiskey is matched by few, and this love for whiskey is embodied perfectly by Bushmills, one of the oldest and most popular Irish whiskey makers on the island country. Dating back as far as 1608, Bushmills was founded by Thomas Philips when King James I granted him with a license to distil.
