Description for Copper Pot Triple Distilled Malt ...
The Irish Single Malt Whiskey has been tripled distilled in Copper Pot Stills, from Irish Malted Barley at Bushmills Distillery. The Single Malt was then passed to Oloroso Sherry Butts, sourced from Cooperage Antonio Paez Lobato of Jerez de la Frontera, Spain for four to six years, carefully managed by Master Blender Alex Thomas.
The Distillery Tasting Note | 40% ABV ...
Our spirit is matured in hand-selected barrels from European oak, toasted from the inside to a medium-high char and seasoned with Oloroso Sherry.
Nose - "At first honeyed malt, nuts and dark chocolate followed by marzipan, all spice and fruits."
Palate - "Clean and mellow honey malt and then the taste complexity reveals itself – rich, dried spices, nuts and sweet oils."
Finish - "A pleasant gentle wood with honey sweetness fading slowly."
