Bushmills Irish Whiskey has launched the new Caribbean Rum Cask Finish, the first edition in a series of whiskeys from the new Bushmills Original Cask Finish range.
Available from Thursday 15th April across the island of Ireland, the Caribbean Rum Cask Finish features the award-winning single malt used in Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey, finished in hand-selected fine oak Caribbean Rum casks and then blended with the brand’s signature triple distilled Irish grain whiskey to create tropical fruit and dry spice flavours.
Rich gold in colour with a distinctive amber hue; the Caribbean rum casks impart pineapple sweetness, caramelized brown sugar notes and toffee tones into the whiskey, delivering a long, smooth finish.
Commenting on the launch, Helen Mulholland, Bushmills Master Blender, said: “The launch of the Cask Finish series is an exciting and innovative move for Bushmills Irish Whiskey. The Cask Finish series adds an extra dimension to our acclaimed Bushmills Original. As the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, The Old Bushmills Distillery has warehouses bursting with unique casks ageing exquisite whiskey. We’re very excited to bring our latest innovation to new and discerning whiskey drinkers across the island of Ireland.”
Bottled at 40% ABV, Bushmills Caribbean Rum Cask Finish will be available across Ireland from select online and in-store retailers, priced at €30 for 700ml.
