Bushmills 2011 Banyuls Casks + Sauternes Casks (2 x 700ml)

Bushmills 2011 The Causeway Collection - Banyuls Casks (700ml)

The Whisky Club limited edition offering. The release is a slightly younger addition to the Causeway Collection, in the Bushmills 2011 Banyuls Cask, offering a sumptuous 53.6% natural cask strength.

The Causeway Collection, of which this latest release is a part, is a special selection of rare and unusually finished single malt Irish whiskeys that Bushmills offers every year. The entire collection will feature a dozen new releases this year, set to be released across a number of enthusiastic markets.

The Bushmills 2011 Banyuls Cask was selected to be available exclusively through The Whisky Club, which is the world’s largest whisky subscription service and has more than 28,000 Australians who subscribe to the monthly service. Like all single malts from Bushmills, the 2011 Banyuls Cask began its life fermenting for a full 56 hours, before being initially aged in ex-Bourbon American oak or ex-Oloroso Sherry casks.

Bushmills 2011 The Causeway Collection - Sauternes Casks (700ml)

Note: Ireland Only Release.

The 2011 Sauternes Cask is a limited edition rare cask finished, cask strength (56.3% ABV) and non chill-filtered Irish single malt. It represents a bold new footstep for Bushmills, one that not only honours the giants and generations before us but also the incomparable natural landscape in which it’s forged.

After maturing for over seven years in oloroso sherry butts and bourbon barrels, this exceptional whiskey was finished in rare Sauternes wine casks. The French casks that have housed this sweet white wine from the Sauternais region of Bordeaux bring an abundance of delicate summer fruit flavours and fresh grape. And where others might recask their whiskey for just six months or so, we’ve added deeper waves of flavour by finishing it in Sauternes wine casks for an unprecedented two years.
