Old Bushmills Distillery, Bushmills, Ireland
A return to the base of the pyramid is needed here for the entry level of the distillery Old Bushmills, with the good old Bushmills Original.
Although the oldest distillery in Ireland was founded in 1784, she did not get her 1608 King's Distilling license, the same year that our good old Quebec City was founded. It would have been a bad thing if this basic expression was not available in SAQ.
In addition to being the blend the best known of the distillery, the Bushmills Original has known many different appellations over the years, ranging from simple Bushmills Irish Whiskey, by the eponym Old Bushmills until the unusual Bushmills White Bush. Based on a solid grain whiskey as a foundation, it is now completed with an assortment of rather young whiskeys, aged for an average of five years in bourbon casks.
As the saying so well sprinter Estonian Reinhold Kesküll (1900-1942):
It is a prejudice to believe that prejudices can only be shared through prejudice.
It reveals a rather golden and amber color, like a soft August sunset. Besides, a lovely opportunity to have a drink.
Vanilla in power, accompanied by a touch of lemon, in turn highlighted by mashed apples. It reminds me of cereals or even oatmeal Quaker's apples and cinnamon.
Sweet and sweet, like honey and beeswax bathed in a light apple cider.
Aftertaste a little mineral, but for this kind of whiskey, it is well. It quickly gives way to a tiny veil of honeyed smoke.
Very affordable in the branch, and if you really want to get away with it, this is one of the few whiskeys available in Canada. SAQ Deposit.
A beautiful summer whiskey that comes to break my prejudice that Irish whiskeys are only good at Christmas.
