Triple distilled in copper pot stills, this single malt whiskey is aged primarily in ex-bourbon barrels. Old Bushmills Distillery has survived for over four centuries through the English malt tax, fires, the Great Famine, Prohibition, and two World Wars. With bottlings such as the 10 year Single Malt, one suspects it will endure for quite a bit longer.

Tasting Notes

"You pick up on vanilla, banana bread, and orchard fruits in this one. Pleasantly plump on the palate, the honey and malt pick up the pace in the mouth. You're not going to write home about this one, but having a nip after work on a Wednesday is not only accepted, it is encouraged."
