A mix of bourbon and sherry casks matured for 19 years before the last two years are spent finishing in ex-Madeira casks, this is the top of Bushmill's regular range. World Whiskies Awards 2012 - Best Irish Single Malt San Francisco WSC - Best Irish Whiskey
Tasting Notes by Mark Gillespie, World Whiskies Awards 2012
Tropical fruits with mango and grapefruit notes, touch of coconut. Tart tropical fruits with grapefruit, papaya, and a touch of coconut. Honey and vanilla underneath with a hint of cinnamon.
Tasting Notes by Jonny McCormick, World Whiskies Awards 2012
A full fruity nose greets you: grape, sultana and stewed figs, cinnamon and dried ginger with hints of tobacco and espresso. Very smooth flavours with damsons, grapes, rich spices and leaves with hints of inky Malbec and black coffee.

Really enjoyed the 16 year can really taste the wine influence --- will open the 21 year when Im in the right mood---just started my Irish collection only have eleven types so far also enjoy the Midleton Very rare my favorite tastes alot stronger than 40%--- don't want to open my Knappogue 36 year which I purchased over one year ago just don't want to be disappointed in it

Im a gardener in Dublin and a grateful client gave me a bottle of this at christmas. Id considered myself a whiskey drinker and was stunned by the taste of this.
to put it simply, it never fails to deliver.

Having tried every Bushmills whiskey on the market in the US, I would have to say the 21yr/old still comes in a close 3rd. The Millenium and 16yr/old are my picks for 1st and 2nd place.

Been sipping on this for a couple of years and sharing with the best of friends,never a disapproving response.

I picked up a bottle of this to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year and it completely changed my perception of Irish whiskey. Jameson was 'meh' and Redbreast 12 was a good step in the right direction. However, with this stuff, I think I may have arrived. A wonderful single malt!
