In honour of that grand occasion when we all journeyed from the 2nd millennium to the 3rd, Bushmills brought out a limited edition range of 17 year single malts. It was bottled at a cask strength 51.6% and each bottle comes individually numbered.
Matured in lightly toasted ex-Bourbon American Oak barrels, one can expect a smooth yet cultured dram with notes of the special Bushmills honeycomb and butterscotch. It was snapped up in 1999 but not much of it ended up seeing it past 31st December, such that it is now quite a rare collector’s item.
