A special release from the world's oldest and Ireland's most-awarded Whiskey maker.

Bushmills is one of the most popular and enduring Irish Whiskies. Carefully crafted in Bushmills, County Antrim, at the oldest licensed Whiskey distillery in the world, their Spirits are renowned for their quality. Their stock of aged juice is a big part of what made them the leaders of Irish Whiskey. The grain-to-glass distillery produces their Spirits in small batches, distilling the malt, maturing the distillate, blending, and bottling on site.

Distilled in 1992 and bottled in 2020, the Busmills 28 Year Old Single Malt Cognac Cask Whiskey is a special beast. The flag-bearer of the new "The Rare Casks" series, it was crafted by the extremely talented Master Blender Helen Mulholland using a centuries-old recipe and only the finest ingredients. Built on Bushmills' solid foundation, it first spent 11 years in ex-Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks, before being finished for a whopping 17 years in ultra-rare Cognac casks. As you can imagine, this complex and layered expression is a strictly-limited affair ― a rare treat for any Irish Whiskey aficionado.

Corner
Irish Whiskey became the most prominent Whiskey and most popular spirit in the 19th century because of the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.

Maria
Maria,
This is hands down one of the finest single malts I've ever tasted. The finish is long and complex with different warming flavors and notes such as vanilla and cinnamon spice. As the first from Bushmills' new Rare Casks series, I'm thrilled to see what next year's release brings.
