    This Bushmills first matured in bourbon and sherry barrels and then received a finish in special bourbon barrels. Bushmills Master Blender Helen Mulholland maintains good contacts with Kelvin Cooperage in Kentucky, where the barrels were burned twice especially for the Irish distillery in order to mature an even smoother whiskey. The single malt with the special finish was then married to the classic triple distilled Irish Grain Whiskey in order to obtain additional dry-spicy aromas.
    • Nose
      Fresh after honey and biscuits with warm, sweet notes of oak and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Rich and soft with sweet crème brûlée, caramel apples and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting finish and gentle like maple syrup and oak.

    Aroma: Soft, honey, smooth. Caramel. And, as expected, vanilla. Sweet fruit. Compared to the Original, a completely different league, much more pleasant, smoother, calmer.

    Taste: Extremely smooth. Very sweet, pie. Lots of honey, caramel and vanilla. Very fresh. Very drinkable.

    Finish: Pleasant, light, delicate finish. The sugar dissolves on the tongue, just strokes and warms slightly.

    Overall: There is nothing to discover, to explore, but it is a subtlety driven to the extreme. Better than Original in all respects. Very "women's", very drinkable dram.
