TASTING NOTES – BUSHMILLS STEAMSHIP COLLECTION N.3 CHARRED BOURBON CASK
Bushmills Steamship Collection N.3 Charred Bourbon Cask is a simple and not very complex spirit, yet sincere and fragrant. The flavor intensity is not very high, but the profile is consistent with the Irish tradition of triple distillation, to which it adds rather active barrels, which give fairly present and pleasant fragrances. A good entry-level to start exploring the whiskeys of the emerald island.
