How about 400 years since the original license to distill Whiskey?
The Bushmills Distillery claims to be — and is almost unanimously considered to be — the oldest licensed distillery in the world. In 2008 Bushmills celebrated the 400th anniversary of the original license to distill Whiskey granted to the Bushmills area in 1608.
Bushmills 16 Year Old Single Malt is matured in three different types of cask — American bourbon barrels, Spanish Oloroso Sherry butts and Port pipes — each of which contributes extra nuances to its flavor.
Appearance / Color
A deep honey-amber.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Fruit dominance continues in the taste, toasted almonds‚ honey, praline, Sherry and a bit of wood.
