70cl // 46% ABV
A very special edition of the Bushmills 1608 blend, this commemorates the distillery’s 400th year anniversary. Jim Murray awarded the blend 94 points.
Nose: Rich, warm. Plenty of floral, sherried notes. Slightly earthy, berry fruits, vanilla and a hint of smoke.
Palate: Full, round palate with marzipan, peels, sherry, thickness.
Finish: Long and fruity, becomes slightly dry.
Overall: A superb Irish blend, lovely balance.
When this is gone, is it truly gone – lost to the human race for ever?
What a loss! How can I cope?
