The first one is maybe a vatting of a few barrels, released in the US only. The second one is the standard release. There were just 600 bottles of the first one.

DOH.... I just realized that the 1995 is NOT a 15 yr. Is a 12 year old. sorry guys.... :roll:

But, since Knappogue went to Bushmills after this 15yr, could this be bushmills?

The 1995 is a Bushmills the 15yo pictyured above is a cooley as were the '90, '91 & '92 (2 Batches) releases. Pretty much everything else is Bushmills I think.

See here

This has not been up dated in some time but I think all since have been Bushmills too but don't quote me ;-)

There were two Bushmills 1995's one a 12yo and one a 13, yours is the twelve bottled in 2007 (L7 001 082 or 123)

In 2008 the 15yo Cooley very limited edition single malt was released a vatting of 1990-1991-1992, 600 bottles only
