Bushmills Sherry Cask #7430, 53.7%

Price: $125 Issue: Summer 2004 Reviewer: John Hansell

The fruitiest of the three. Notes of ripe fruit, candied almonds, treacle and toffee. Dry, spicy oak notes on the finish. Rich and thick in texture, but not to the point of being cloying. And while the sherry notes are prominent throughout, they do not dominate like many other Scotch and Irish whiskeys. It's well balanced and very enjoyable. Save this one for after dinner.
