Inspired by a partnership spanning decades between Bushmills and legendary barrel makers Kelvin Cooperage, the American Oak Cask Finish celebrates the amalgamation of two of the world’s great whiskey-making capitals, Bushmills and Louisville, Kentucky.
In 2008, Louisville, the home of Kelvin Cooperage, was twinned with the village of Bushmills during celebrations marking Bushmills 400th anniversary, further strengthening the ties between these two areas steeped in whiskey heritage.
The American Oak Cask Finish features the award-winning single malt used in Bushmills® Original Irish Whiskey, finished in double-charred American Oak barrels. It is then blended with the brand’s signature triple distilled Irish grain whiskey, giving it an extra smooth character with fresh wood and sweet vanilla notes.
Small batches of the finest American Oak barrels are hand-selected at Kelvin Cooperage and double-charred for Bushmills, giving these casks unique properties ideal for whiskey maturation. Bushmills single malt then ages in these casks, resulting in a deeper interaction between the whiskey and the oak, delivering the superior flavour profile achieved in this cask finish expression.
Colour: Rich gold in colour with a distinctive amber hue
Nose: On the nose, accents of fresh honey and biscuit entwine distinctive toasted oak aromas, with the double charred American Oak cask accentuating the warm wood sweetness and vanilla scents
Taste: Rich yet mellow on the palate, the double charred maturation process imparts balanced sweet notes of crème brûlée, toffee apple and vanilla
Finish: With notes of maple syrup and oak, the finish is deep and smooth

Very occasionally, a wine may suffer from cork taint, the unpleasant effects of a faulty closure. Cork taint is more common in bottles with a traditional cork closure, and is recognisable by a damp, rotten wood or rotten cardboard smell. It’s often quite pungent, and immediately detectable when opening a bottle for the first time. If you get a bottle you think is tainted, contact us and we’ll replace the bottle for free within 48 hours or give you a full refund – whichever you prefer.
