Bushmills Causeway 1995 Marsala Cask 5cl Sample Dram
1995 MARSALA CASK
The 1995 Marsala Cask is a limited edition rare cask finished, cask strength (57.8% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt.
It represents the next bold step for Bushmills, one that honours the giants and generations before us and the incomparable natural landscape in which its forged.
After maturing for over 10 years in oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels, this exceptional whiskey was finished in rare Marsala casks sourced from the island of Sicily. These casks carry succulent spiced fruit notes and the brown sugar sweetness characteristic of this dark sweet Marsala wine. And where others might recask their whiskey for just six months or so, we’ve added deeper waves of flavour by maturing ours in these Marsala casks for a further 15 years.
The extra time taken to finish this whiskey gives it a rich dried fruit character and sherry complexity. Black coffee follows with a warming ginger finish. It’s a sensational whiskey that stands with the best of Irish single malt, a giant in its own right.
