In it's final 2 years of ageing, it is matured in Madeira casks. This unique combination of woods gives this 21 year old an enjoyable depth of flavour. Dried fruit flavours are interweaved with spicy malt and toasted raisin notes. Full and sweet on the nose, with notes of soft spice and orange peel. It has a smooth texture on the palate with an intense finish of liquorice and oak.

Once shipped to the Bushmills distillery the casks are filled and left to mature peacefully, working there magic over time to give Bushmills whiskey the enjoyable, rich, mellow and distinctive flavour.
