Bushmills Millennium Malt 1975 Cask #368

$ 449

Introducing the coveted Bushmills Millennium Malt, a private cask bottling distilled all the way back in 1975. At a time when the majority of Bushmills output was destined for blends, a one time opportunity to own your own cask was granted to private investors privileged enough to afford it. This particular bottling was aged in two different woods. Beginning its journey in a sherry hogshead from 1975 until September 1993, the whiskey was then transferred to a single ex-bourbon cask for a final lengthy finish until its bottling at the end of 1999. The combination of the sherry and ex-bourbon casks produced a wonderfully sweet, nutty, rich whiskey, with the complexity expected from such a mature spirit. The additional finish from the ex-bourbon brought increased structure or body to the spirit, with “substantially more mouthfeel than previously, with a creamy, velvety softness on the palate” according to Frank McHardy, the master distiller at the time.

Yielding 282 bottles, this 24 year old single malt is a rare opportunity to experience some of the finest whiskey to come out of Ireland’s oldest distillery.
