Bushmills Causeway 2010 Cognac cask 53.8% ABV
'The 2010 Cognac Cask is a limited edition rare cask finished, cask strength (53.8% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt. It represents the next bold step for Bushmills, one that enables them to forge and legitimise their leadership as the pioneer of single malt, establishing themselves as the true north of Irish whiskey.'
After maturing for over seven years in oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels, Alex Thomas, Bushmills' Master Blender, finished this outstanding whiskey in ancient cognac casks from the Charente region in France. Each Limousin oak cask has previously aged exceptional cognac for at least fifteen years, imbuing the whiskey with a rich tableau of ripe fruit, candied figs and hints of almond. And where others might re-cask their whiskey for just six months or so, Bushmills added deeper waves of flavour by maturing theirs in these cognac casks for a further five years.
