Bushmills The Steamship Collection Rum Cask Reserve, 40%

Price: $130 Issue: Summer 2019 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

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)
