Bushmills 28 Year Old Single Malt Cognac Cask, is said to deliver rounded sweet spicy wood aromas, with notes of dried fruit, pear, vanilla and cinnamon.
Commenting on the launch, Helen Mulholland, Bushmills Master Blender, said: "At Bushmills, the foundation of our whiskey is the quality of ingredients and the experience and skill we have passed down through generations. Throughout my almost 30-year career at Bushmills, I have nurtured this special whiskey from its distillate, experimenting with different taste profiles and finally resting it in some of the world's rarest and highest quality casks."
She went onto say: "Maturing this precious malt in former Cognac casks has brought out unique notes and characteristics specific to Cognac, developing the whiskey into something new and distinct for Bushmills, with bold intensity and subtle sweetness. Bushmills 28 Year Old Single Malt Cognac Cask is a time capsule of my career at the distillery, and one of the most complex and layered whiskeys ever released by us."
Limited to less than 500 bottles, Bushmills 28 Year Old Single Malt Cognac Cask, will be available later this month exclusively in the US, for a RRP of $500.00.
