100cl / 45% - A litre bottle of Bulleit's big and spicy rye whiskey. Rye makes up 95% of the mash, about as much as you can use before you have to starting doing weird things to make sure you can still produce whiskey.
75cl / 40% - An old bottle of Jameson's from the 1970s, this was produced at the old Bow Street distillery before the move to Midleton in 1975.
Nose: Green apples, treacle, Seville oranges, candy peel, cloves and marzipan, old pantries. Taste: Sherbet, apples, dried fruit, mocha, late coffee ice cream. Finish: More Seville oranges, late bitterness.
70cl / 40% - A rich, dark, Irish blend, Black Bush contains a high proportion of triple-distilled single malt, aged in Oloroso sherry casks for around 8-10 years before marriage with the grain. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.
