Bushmills 16 Year is a triple-distilled single malt aged around 15 years in a combination of oloroso sherry and bourbon casks. Then the whiskey is finished in port wine pipes to finish maturation. The single malt is bottled at 80 proof.


Nose: An exquisite belt of exotic spices, cut with rich cigar smoke.

Taste: A rich start sets off tangerines, cocoa and spicy port notes. This whiskey keeps unfolding as you hold it in the mouth. Later, nutty toffee and cocoa arrive.

Finish: The port really makes itself felt here. Very dry, yet sweet. Hints of bitter chocolate.
