Bushmills Causeway 1999 American Oak Cask 50.1% ABV ABV
'The 1999 American Oak Cask is a limited edition rare cask strength (50.1% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt. It represents the next bold step for Bushmills, one that enables Bushmills to forge and legitimise their leadership as the pioneer of single malt, establishing themselves as the true north of Irish whiskey.
'This unparalleled single malt has spent its entire life in the finest new American oak casks. Filled on 14th September 1999, it has spent over 23 years patiently maturing in these casks hand-crafted at the Kelvin Cooperage in Kentucky, USA. The virgin oak imparts flavours quickly – adding big hits of intense vanilla, coconut, warm spice and creamy chocolate.
'The decades have amplified the rich oak notes, adding layers of caramelised fruit and cinnamon, leaving you with a deep, sweet velvety vanilla finish with warm wood spices. It’s a sensational whiskey that stands with the best of Irish single malt, a giant in its own right.'
