Bushmills Black Bush 70cl

€33,99

Bushmills Black Bush whiskey is a blended whiskey that carries no age statement. It uses a unique recipe of different grains and finished in sherry cask for an extra complexity on the palate, a practice often used in the single malt scotch world. An astute reader notes that the flagship Bushmills label is known as "white bush" (for the white label) so the "black bush" makes some sense as a premium expression with the extra sherry cask note.

Bushmills whiskey is made at the Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest operating distillery in Ireland. It marks its founding in 1608 when King James granted Sir Thomas Phillips the right to distill whiskey. It became registered in 1784. Today, it continues to produce only single malt (barley) whiskey and when it blends uses grain whiskey from other distilleries. They distill in a combination of 9, swan-neck stills that they believe produces a "lighter, smoother" style of whiskey. The brand and distillery were both acquired by international conglomerate Diageo in 2006 who later traded it to Jose Cuervo in March, 2015 in exchange for the Don Julio brand.
