Description:
A product of the world's oldest licensed distillery. Bushmills single malt Irish Whiskey is the original single malt whiskey from Ireland. With an intriguing aroma and well-balanced flavour, Bushmills Malt is a delightfully delicate malt and uncomplicated whiskey crafted from 100% malted barley. Its style is mellow and light, and a time tested drying process assures that the taste of the malt shines through.

All the malt used in the mash is dried in closed kilns devoid of peat, preventing it from absorbing the fire's smokiness while retaining the malt's distinctive, authentic character and exceptionally clean taste. Bushmills Malt has a sweet spicy aroma with overtones of Oloroso sherry, vanilla and honey.

It is characterful and complex; mild, but nonetheless has a rich, malty character, not overlaid by any strong peaty/smokey notes so typical of most Scottish malts.
Smooth on the palate with a slightly dry finish.

Review: First tried this in its country of origin. Bought it duty-free on the ferry on the way back as a birthday present for my dad. Needless to say, he was incredibly pleased. Between us, we finished it in a couple of weeks (even though we tried to make it last). Absolutely fantastic. Makes the perfect Irish coffee, but is wonderful when sipped neat. I bought myself a bottle of the original the other week because it was cheaper, and have never regretted anything (anything alcohol related, at least) as much as that. When it comes to Irish whisky, it doesn\'t get much better than Bushmills 10yr.

Review: This whiskey is a light straw yellow colour in the glass with a spicy, oaky taste at first. Like many single malts the flavours develop with each sip. Unlike some Scottish malts (Islay, Speyside et al) the flavours are not overpowering & strong so this is ideally suited as an introduction to malt whiskey.

Producer Information

The Old Bushmills Distillery is the world's oldest licensed whiskey distillery having received its licence to distil in 1608. In 1608 Sir Thomas Phillips was granted a licence to distil whiskey by James 1 of England, however, mentions of distilling traditions in the surrounding environs date back to 1276.
The Co Antrim village has a long and illustrious history of whiskey production. Stories tell us that the troops of King Henry II of England were more than happy to discover the unique taste of Irish whiskey. Unable to pronounce the Gaelic 'Uisce Beatha' (Water of Life), they shortened it to 'Fuisce' and finally to Whiskey.
Within a few short years after 1608, London society was paying tribute to the quality of the whiskey produced at the Old Bushmills Distillery. The Irish spirit was a favourite among the revellers of British King James' court. In 1784 the Distillery became an officially registered company.
From 1740s to 1910 Irish emigrants to the USA spread their taste for Bushmills.During these years the Bushmills family scored outstanding successes at International spirit and whiskey competitions.
The company flourished until Prohibition in America and other factors, which destroyed the whiskey export trade in Ireland. Although many of the Irish distilleries were forced to close, Bushmills was able to recover thanks to the vision of the then distillery director Wilson Boyd. He correctly anticipated the end of the American alcohol ban and had ample stocks of his fine whiskey ready for export.
In 1947 Isaac Wolfson of Great Universal Stores bought the Old Bushmills Distillery. Wolfson's friend, the infamous Colonel Henry Kaplan formed a new wholesale operation in the USA, Quality Importers Inc. and heavily promoting Bushmills for seventeen years and even listed Bushmills in the celebrated '21' club.
Since then, Bushmills has flourished abroad, as well as at home, and has become the sipping whiskey for the discerning drinker looking for an original choice.
