The 1997 Rum Cask is a limited edition rare cask strength (46. 2% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt. It represents the next bold step for Bushmills, one that honours the giants and generations before us and the incomparable natural landscape in which its forged. This unique single malt has spent its entire life in first-fill American oak rum casks. Filled on 14th February 1997, it has spent an incredible 25 years patiently maturing in Warehouse 8. Alex Thomas, our Master Blender, has expertly watched over this malt as it’s been imbued with luscious exotic summer fruit notes of apricot, mango and pineapple. The decades have deepened the flavours, adding richer layers of honey, vanilla toffee and warming spice. At cask strength, the waves of tropical flavours are more elevated and distinct, followed by an incomparable smoothness. It’s a sensational whiskey that stands with the best of Irish single malt, a giant in its own right. Tasting Notes: Colour: Straw gold. Nose: Delicate summer fruit, honey and a hint of black pepper. Taste: Notes of sweet toffee entwined with delicate oak traces lead to exotic apricot and mango flavours followed by a vanilla sweetness and warming spice.
