BUSHMILLS Single cask 1989 Bourbon barrel 56,5%


Nose:
Refined oak, malt concentrate and liquid honey helt to take the Bushmills character to new heights.




Palate:
Vanilla, honey, sophisticated malt and just a hint of marzipan make for a potent breed, indeed. Short burts of oaky pepperines accompanies it along the way.





Finish:
Literally grabs you by the throat. At first, dry and expansive oak followed by a wave of honeyed malt.


Comment:
Liquid gold is the nearest way I can describe this whiskey. Ample prooof that Bushmills don´t need "artificial" casks to thrive.

Rating: 8/10
