Bushmills Black Bush, from the world’s oldest licensed distillery, is a blend of single malt and grain whiskeys, triple distilled and aged in sherry casks. You’ll find spicy and fruity aromas on the nose, a nuttiness on the soft, gentle palate along with rich fruit cake characters, and an exceptionally long, satisfying finish.
It’s just the kind of malt-forward Irish whiskey you’ll want in a cocktail, particularly so in a Whiskey Sour; that’s why it shines in this Black Bush Sour below.
