Bushmills 12 yo Caribbean Rum Cask

by Oliver Klimek on July 21, 2009

An unusual finish from Ireland – 40 %

My tasting Notes

Nose: Impressive and very fruity, apricots, bananas
Palate: Milder than you would expect after the strong nose. Again apriots and bananas
Finish: Long, the apricot wins against the banana
Overall: A very fruity malt, mild but nevertheless with a distinctive taste. Doesn’t really taste “rummy”.

Score: 80/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Where can I buy this ‘Bushmills 12 yo Caribbean Rum Cask’. I can’t find it anywhere and people keep saying its in Duty Free, I can’t find it in any NY Duty Free shops. Can someone name a specific place where they got it?

I bought it from German online shop http://www.whisky24.de But I think it is sold out. Even the Whisky Exchange does not seem to have it anymore. I think it was a limited release only.

Hi there,

there was a rumour that it should turn into a standard offering by Bushmills about a year ago. But nothing came of it until now.
