Bushmills Steamship Collection Sherry Cask Reserve. Image courtesy Bushmills.This is the first new whisky from Bushmills since 2008, and is a single malt matured in Oloroso Sherry casks. The nose has notes of dried fruits, apricot, dark chocolate, clover honey, vanilla, and a hint of allspice. That hint comes to life on the palate, which is rich, thick, and spicy with allspice and clove notes balanced by clover honey, cocoa, and dried flowers. The finish is long, rich, and sweet without being cloying. Excellent! (March, 2016)
