This latest release is said to deliver notes of ripe summer fruits, caramelised sugar, black coffee and walnut oil on the nose, followed by notes of sweet peach, orange peel, roasted nuts, honey, black coffee and gentle spice on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Alex Thomas, Bushmills Master Blender, said: “I wanted to share something truly unique for our partners at Avolta.  I chose this single malt aged exclusively in Madeira casks for its distinct profile. Each decision from the cask selection and seasoning process, to the bottling and packaging is testament to our restless pursuit of perfection and determination to delight consumers with ground-breaking and prestigious single malt whiskeys. Having spent 23 years maturing in Madeira casks alone, I’m confident this one will be hugely popular… its luscious sweetness is basically summer in a glass!”.

Bushmills 23 Year Old Madeira Cask, is now available from Avolta’s World Duty-Free stores at Heathrow Airport, ahead of rolling out across Avolta’s travel retail outlets worldwide at the end of next month. RRP: £390.00.
