6 All the woods are influential, especially the port in the finish. A very dexterous balancing act, but is the house character eventually overwhelmed?

7 Despite being a malt, it still, somehow has an Irish accent. Slightly more personality than the Bushmills malt at 16 Years Old. Drinkable and sociable.

Bushmills 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Ireland - 40.00%
7 A delicious whisky. The sweetness and nuttiness of Bushmills whiskey and of Madeira are an enjoyable double-act. The whiskey has to work hard to avoid being upstaged.
