Bushmills Port Cask

This is the third expression in the Bushmills Steamship Collection travel retail series and the most expensive.  There is lots of red fruits and wine in the nose.  The mouthfeel is smooth and the taste has dates, digestive biscuits, red grape skins, cinnamon and a little oak which carries into the finish.  With water it gets much sweeter and even smoother with an almost glassy mouthfeel and toffee.  Even at 40% ABV this needs a little water.   A very smooth, easy drinking Irish whiskey and maybe the first in this series I might order instead of my go to Bushmills product Black Bush (....unless I am paying).
