BUSHMILLS 12 YEARS SINGLE MALT
Bushmills 12 year old Distillery Reserve is matured mainly in former Spanish Oloroso sherry casks which lend a deep amber colour and wonderful dried fruit aromas to this whiskey. Like all our single malts, it is gentle and approachable with added weight.
Nose: Very very fruity. Peaches, bananas, mango straight off the bat. These then give way to the sherry influence with marzipan, raisins, malt and a hint of allspice.
In the mouth: It has a light, delicate mouthfeel. Very honeyed with cloves initially, like a cold ‘hot toddy’ then the fruit makes its appearance, caramelised banana, Seville orange zest, sweet malt with clove spice running throughout before notes of chocolate, raisins and star anise come to the fore. The finish is medium, remaining sweet although with a touch of spicy European oak.
