Triple distilled and matured in two woods, presumably American oak and sherry casks as the 16 year old, but without the finishing.

A golden coloured dram with an appetising nose replete with juicy malt and vanilla, supported by a range of fruity hints from pear, papaya, mango and lime. There is a pleasing amount of body to this malt and no unpleasant alcohol burn, it really is very easy going. The flavours are also very accessible and easy going containing spicy fruity flavours and a malty backbone. Hints of vanilla, pear, bran, cinnamon, coal gas, mild coffee, fenugreek seeds and papaya. The malty sweetness shines through on the finish drying slowly as a satisfying if uneventful climax.

This is a very appetising and easy going malt which I heartily approve of. A colleague of mine in a previous job professed to only like peaty strongly flavoured whisky. On the summit of a charity mountain climb in Snowdonia on a very pleasant summer day I offered this colleague a sip of my hip flask which contained some Glenmorangie original, they were blown away by the flavours of what they considered a bland malt. Bushmills 10y reminded me of that experience during this tasting as it’s a similar malt to Glenmorangie original in many ways, easy going and very flavourful.
