Rare Bushmills Single Malt Whiskey at least 21 years in the making. Triple distilled, matured in Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon-seasoned casks for 19 years and then combined to finalise maturation in Madeira wooden casks for 2 years. As a result, this old whiskey has complex flavours and aromas. Each bottle is individually numbered.
Price – €182.95
Redbreast 21 is the finest representation of the signature Redbreast sherry style and the 21-year ageing process introduces new levels of depth, flavour and taste to create an inherently complex and ultimately, rewarding whiskey. It is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, triple distilled in copper pot stills, and finally, matured in a combination of American bourbon barrels and first-fill Spanish oloroso sherry butts.
Price – €194.95
Bearing the name of the celebrated second generation Midleton Master Distiller, Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy represents a selection of pot still whiskeys which have been matured exclusively in American bourbon barrels with a subtle contribution from a pot still distillate which has matured in an unseasoned American barrel. ‘The pinnacle of the Single Pot Still range’ is limited to 2500 bottles per year.
