Bushmills 30 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey
In celebration of the 415th anniversary of its licence to distill, Bushmills Irish Whiskey has revealed two new rare, aged whiskeys have been created as permanent additions to its core range – a 25 Year Old and a 30 Year Old single malt. Drawn from the greatest reserve of aged Irish single malt whiskey in the world, and among the rarest small batch whiskeys ever produced at the distillery in County Antrim, the 25 and 30 Year Old mark Bushmills’ bold entry into the ultra-prestige single malt segment. Both are superb whiskeys, distinctively Irish, with deep triple distilled smoothness, wholly complex and utterly unique.
The 30 Year Old, distilled in 1992, will be the oldest expression released as part of the Bushmills core range to date. Bottled at 46% ABV and non-chill-filtered, this sublime whiskey has been matured for 14 years before being finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for 16 years. It is an exquisite whiskey characterised by signature sherry aromas of dried fruits and a deep and perfect PX complexity
The new releases arrive in a bottle and packaging reflecting contemporary, yet timeless elegance, as iconic and luxurious as the liquid they contain. The bespoke hexagonal gift box contains an elegant bottle with flared shoulders standing handsomely with custom gold closure and engraving. A thick glass base with hexagonal punt is a proud nod to Bushmills’ provenance and the Giant’s Causeway; the UNESCO World Heritage site a stone’s throw from the distillery and a source of inspiration for Bushmills for centuries.
Colour; Dark Rich Gold
Nose; Rich inviting sweet aromas of raisins, figs, prunes and dates entwined with treacle toffee, soft clove and sweet spice.
Taste; Exquisite, velvety and smooth mouth feel. Sweet hints of dates, raisins and figs followed by Praline and orange peel before developing into vanilla and warm pastry notes.
Finish; Long complex finish that reminds you of the amazing number of years this whiskey has spent gaining its individual character. The dried fruit and toffee sweet notes are left lingering. The elegance and refinement of this exquisite single malt is enticing and demands a second sip.
ABV: 46% Abv, non chill-filtered
