This latest release which was distilled in 1994, is comprised of rare and unique cask finished Irish single malt whiskeys from The Old Bushmills Distillery – the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, and is said to be a unique straw gold whiskey, with key notes of crème brûlée, cinnamon spice & tropical fruits.

Commenting on the news, Colum Egan, Bushmills Master Distiller, said: “This 27-Year-Old Bourbon Cask is a really special single malt. Maturing it for 21 years in first-fill bourbon barrels gives our single malt beautifully intense vanilla notes that evolve into creamy crème brûlée over time, complemented by gentle waves of cinnamon spice. It’s truly a sensational whiskey that stands with the best of Irish single malt, a giant in its own right.”

Colum, went onto say: “The Causeway Collection celebrates our extremely rare and unique cask finishes, our passion for single malts and honours our rich heritage. It’s a privilege to work with such rare liquid, these special cask-finished whiskeys really are our greatest treasures.”

Limited to 678 bottles, Bushmills 27 Year Old Bourbon Cask, will be available later this month exclusively from The Irish Whiskey Collection at The Loop, Dublin and Cork Airports. RRP €650.00.
