Bushmills - Causeway Series Sauternes Cask Limited Edition Single Malt Irish Whiskey 2011

Only limited bottles of the 2011 Sauternes Cask are available. Exclusively released for the island of Ireland.

The 2011 Sauternes Cask is a limited edition rare cask finished, cask strength (56.3% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt that’s been distilled, matured, finished and bottled at the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery.

Just a stone’s throw from the distillery, the Giant’s Causeway has inspired us for centuries. Its extraordinary hexagonal columns form a series of steps, much like the expressions in this Collection. This 2011 single malt is a bold new footstep for Bushmills, one that not only honours the giants and generations before us but also the incomparable natural landscape in which it’s forged.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Amber Gold in Colour. Delicate aromas of fresh white wine that deepen into ripe peaches and apricots with a hint of vanilla sweetness.
Palate: Our signature Bushmills sweet and spicy flavours give way to layers of vanilla and honey, followed by hints of citrus and toffee apple.
Finish: A long and warming summer fruits finish.
