The empty casks are then delivered back to the Old Bushmills Distillery and filled with triple-distilled Bushmills Single Malt Irish whiskey. The result is a limited release of fine single malt Irish whiskey matured in olorosso sherry butts to give a unique flavour of rich fruit, spiced honey and dark chocolate, with a long sweet and smooth finish.Only top grade, air-dried Spanish oak sherry butts which have been seasoned with dark Oloroso Sherry for nine months are selected.
