I was introduced to the 16YO Bushmills 7 years ago (it's been that long? Sheeesh!) at my first attending of the Whisky Expo in San Francisco.
Tasty stuff...but the REAL kicker was a tease done by David Quinn (Bushmill Master Blender at the time) with a tasting of an 18yo Bushmills, somewhat similar to the 16YO, but SO much better. There was a hint that it might be released for Bushmill's 400th anniversary, which I believe is next year.
Anyhoo, I like it, although given the choice between it and say, Redbreast 12 YO Pot Still Irish whisky, I'll go with the latter.
