Bushmills 1608 400th Anniversary

Bushmills 1608 400th Anniversary

Official bottling
Single blend - Northern Ireland
46% ABV

Nose: Toffee, butterscotch, honey, maraschino cherries, red grapes, cucumber. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens slightly, oily, static. 
Tasting: Sweet. Toffee, maraschino cherries, red grapes, honey, orange peel, ginger. 
Finish: Long. Honey, coffee, cucumber, orange peel 


Blended whisky from Bushmills - all from Bushmills, grain included - made from regular malt, grain and crystal malt. The crystal is meant to give it some chocolatey notes. I must say that it's not much in evidence. Instead it's fresh tasting, with huge notes of honey and maraschino cherries, with a biting coffee note in the finish. Very nice, very drinkable, almost quaffable.


I like this a lot.
