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.

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.

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.
