Bushmills Single Malt Irish Whiskey Rum Cask Finish is a remarkable expression from the historic Bushmills Distillery, located in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Known for being the world's oldest licensed distillery, established in 1608, Bushmills has a rich heritage of crafting exceptional Single Malt whiskey. 

As one of the top Irish whiskey brands, Bushmills continues to innovate with unique finishes. This unique whiskey features the classic Bushmills single malt, which is initially aged in ex-bourbon and sherry casks, then finished in Caribbean rum casks. This additional maturation imparts a distinctive tropical character, enhancing the smooth, rich profile that Bushmills is renowned for.

On the nose, expect a vibrant bouquet of crisp apple, creamy toffee, and exotic fruit aromas like pineapple and coconut. The palate reveals luscious notes of caramelised brown sugar, sticky toffee, and a creamy mouthfeel, underscored by the quintessential Bushmills malt character. The finish is long, soft, and smooth, with lingering sugary sweetness from the rum cask influence.
