Bushmills Steamship Collection Rum Cask Reserve Single Malt Irish Whiskey (700ml)
Note: All boxes have a fault on the inside lining, design flaw from factory. Does not influence the way it holds the bottle.
A novel addition to the "Steamship Series", this time matured full term in first fill Caribbean rum casks adding flavours of tropical fruit, subtle spice, vanilla pod and toffee.
Other reviews... Brilliant usage of rum casks to enrich the notoriously slight maltiness of Bushmills. A malt that is in full sail...

...Jaffa orange, flowers, hard candies, rose water, and light spices make a rather muted offering. Fortunately there’s a sweet, malty mouthful of fudge, orange shred, gingerbread, and candied orange slices, with a nibble of peppercorn spices and a finish of clove-studded orange. Tasty and well-balanced, salvaging the less than inspiring nose. (Travel Retail)
