This latest release from the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, is said to deliver notes of rich fruitcake, sherry, toasted nuts, allspice and ripe peaches.

Commenting on the launch, Colum Egan, Master Distiller at Bushmills, said: “We are excited to launch, BLACK BUSH 80/20 PX Sherry Cask Reserve.
