Tasting Notes

This rare 16 yr single malt gets its honeyed, toasty, vanilla notes from the "Three Wood" maturation it undergoes. Spending 16 yrs or more in Bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks the blend then spends several months in large old port pipes imparting a subtle sweentess and complexity.

Staff Pick Notes

Bushmills 16 Year is a gorgeous whiskey from start to finish. The 16 Year is famous for it's use of three separate barrels. First, two sets of malt whiskey are aged separately, one in old bourbon barrels and one in ex-Oloroso sherry casks. They are then combined and finished in port wine barrels. Technicalities aside, what I love most about this whiskey is its ability to retain all of the elegance and restraint of a beautiful Irish Whiskey. The nose reveals almonds, toasted nuts, honey, and toffee. On the palate, roasted nuts, peaches in syrup, and holiday spices prevail. The finish is elegant and clean with beautiful chocolate covered berries. Whether you're already beguiled by Irish whiskey or looking to expand your collection or palate, this one is a must!
