BUSHMILLS CAUSEWAY COLLECTION 2010 COGNAC CASK
The 2010 Cognac Cask is a limited-edition rare 53.8% ABV cask strength,
non chill-filtered single malt Irish whiskey.
Distilled in 2010, it spent over seven years maturing in oloroso sherry butts
and bourbon barrels, before being finished in ancient cognac casks from the
Charente region in France for a further five years.
Each Limousin oak cask has previously aged exceptional cognac for at least
fifteen years, imbuing the whiskey with a rich tableau of ripe fruit, candied figs
and hints of almond.
The years have intensified the cognac’s Ugni Blanc grape aromas, resulting in
a single malt bursting with ripe pear and buttery honeycomb with layers of
deeper cinnamon spice, leather and dried fruits. It’s a sensational whiskey
that stands with the best of Irish single malt, a giant in its own right.
