About this deal

Bushmills BLACK BUSH Irish Whiskey combines an exceptionally high amount of malt whiskey married with a lighter grain whiskey, and then matured in former Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon casks. We find it best to enjoy it poured neat over ice but can also be drank with cola or poured over ice cream!

Noticeably sweet as soon as it hits the palate, you will enjoy the bite of lemon and lime and hints of orange all tantalising the tongue. Black Bush Irish whiskey combines an exceptionally high amount of malt married with a sweet, small-batch grain whiskey, and then matured in former Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks. Enjoyed by absinthe connoisseurs and dedicated spirits advocates around the world in the traditional way with sugar and water. When I taste the liquid now in their newer bottle label, I am no longer reminded of the very vivid experiences, but more about what could have been if they offered a better tour on their distillery grounds. Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey combines a high amount of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso Sherry casks, with a sweet, batch-distilled grain whiskey.Even back in 2016, I felt there was a tannic bitterness making a powerful and unwelcome presence felt in Black Bush and sadly it’s still there and very much to its detriment. We weren’t shown the bottling room either because the view was completely obscured with marketing billboards due to ‘bloggers taking pictures of our upcoming releases and telling everyone before we broke the news’.

The flavour is smooth and sweet on the palate with the woody and vanilla notes coming together strongly and a hint of sweet honey coming in.I'm not normally a big fan of Irish whiskey, I prefer Scotch single malt, which, from an Irish man is probably sacrilege but this would be as close to a Scotch as you will get. It leaves a slight smokey after taste,now for all the whiskey snobs this won't do it for you but if like me you just want an every day sipping whiskey this will do the job. The floral notes come to a head in the flavour, with spices carrying the drink to a new level, smoothness ruling throughout.

This unique recipe means Black Bush has rich, fruity notes and a deep intense character, balanced by an incredibly unique smoothness.So, if you were looking for an Irish blend where would I point you too for a better experience than the current Black Bush? This reminded me of a previous visit I’d had at the Bushmills distillery, where my olfactory senses were incredibly overwhelmed in a way I’d never imagined. Definitely going to make sure I always have this on hand as it's a great (and inexpensive) option for every day drinking. Award winning and becoming more and more popular, Bulleit has a pungent nose awash with orange and oak notes, as well as a hint of smoke and even a little banana.

The first-class Black Bush 1 l of Bushmills from Ireland flows in eye-pleasing amber hue into the brightly polished glass.

That bottle is 40% ABV, so I don’t have the opportunity to sample and taste something that is cask strength or more appealing really.But I have felt that over recent years quality has been slipping and so I felt it time to revisit and share my opinion. Now they may enjoy a break as he uses the written word to bring that enthusiasm onto a wider audience. The high malt mash-bill presents an acceptable level of quality especially if you're used to a Speyside whisky. Then we get dark baking fruit of dates and raisins with milk chocolate, some roast coffee beans, dried ginger and malt.
