Bushmills - Causeway Series Pomerol Cask Limited Edition Single Malt Irish Whiskey 2012 700 ml, 54.2% ABV

 

The 2012 Pomerol Cask is a limited rare cask finished, cask strength (54.2% 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 2012 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.

After maturing for over six years in oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels, Alex Thomas, our Master Blender, finished this exquisite whiskey in rare Pomerol wine casks.

The smallest of all the major Bordeaux wine appellations, Pomerol is home to some of the most expensive and sought-after red wines in the world, delivering intense but refined aromas of ripe wild dark berries. And where others might recask their whiskey for just six months or so, we’ve added deeper waves of flavour by maturing ours in these Pomerol casks for a further four years.

The result is a single malt that is warm and mellow, with notes of ginger, but also with fresher flavours of crisp green apple and lemon zest. It’s a sensational whiskey that stands with the best of Irish single malt, a giant in its own right
