Innovation is a by-product of an ever-expanding marketplace, and that’s very true of whisky. This time, Ireland’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, Bushmills, have just launched their new, and very tasty, Rum Cask Finish.
This is a blended whisky, which is the first in a series of Original Cask Finish tipples. Having launched in May 21 at an incredibly reasonable £24.50, this features the award-winning single malt used in Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey, finished in hand selected fine oak Caribbean Rum casks. It’s then blended with the brand’s signature triple distilled Irish grain whiskey to create tropical fruit and dry spice flavours.
The rum casks were first used in the Caribbean to hold rum for a minimum of 7 years, which is responsible for its delicious crisp apple freshness-meets honey and exotic fruit on the nose.
On the tongue, expect caramelized sugar sweetness, sticky toffee and that amazing honey Bushmills does so well.
This is a super smooth, lingering, sweet tipple that’s perfectly sensible for a warm Summer’s evening on the patio. Love it!
For this Father’s Day, don’t forget about Bushmills Black Bush too (also £25). The pair would make a perfect gift for the perfect, Whiskey loving Dad!
Can be purchased from Whisky Exchange, Master Of Malt or House Of Malt.
