The 2011 Sauternes Cask is a limited edition rare cask finished, cask strength (56.3% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt. It represents 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 seven years in oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels, this exceptional whiskey was finished in rare Sauternes wine casks. The French casks that have housed this sweet white wine from the Sauternais region of Bordeaux bring an abundance of delicate summer fruit flavours and fresh grape. And where others might recask their whiskey for just six months or so, they have added deeper waves of flavour by finishing it in Sauternes wine casks for an unprecedented two years.
