Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 97 points (Mar 2015)
(UB Collection,Chairman’s Trophy,Tried & True Award)- Malty with notes of cocoa, rhubarb, cherry liqueur, and honey. Nutty and full on the palate, with a savory edge. Baked apricot and honey linger onto the finish, which is luscious and lengthy.
 Wine Enthusiast 96 points (Dec 2008)
The smashing bouquet features delightful notes of toasted wheat bread, oatmeal, black raisins, trail mix, roasted chestnuts, bacon fat, sweet butter, ruby Port and prunes. Entry is peppery, moderately sweet and smoky; midpalate features succulent tastes of dark chocolate-covered cherries and strawberries, honey and smoked nuts. Finishes elegantly and clean, with deft traces of smoke and cocoa. P.P. (12/1/2008) 96-100

Wine maker notes
“Well‚ it takes a special dedication to create the Bushmills 16 year-old‚ that and lots of patience. Two whiskeys are matured for 16 years‚ one in a bourbon barrel and the other in sherry‚ and then they are married together in a sweet port infused cask. It’s a marriage made in heaven!”
