Whiskey or Whisky
Interesting fact… Bushmills 10 Year Old whiskey spells its name whiskey as it originates in Ireland. Had it been produced in Scotland its name would be Bushmills 10 Year Old whisky, instead of whiskey.

Brilliant Irish Whiskey
Not a bad whisky at all, considering that my colleague Heiko and I drank a whole bottle (he 25%, me the rest) to celebrate an event going well. The next day, however, neither of us had a headache. I'm sure that counts for something?
Anyway, the sherry this time around makes a much better impression that, say, two years back. Quite fruity and full. A touch of port in the finish. Very subtle nose, in my opinion. Very good dram for - no offense - beginners.

Bought a 1l bottle in Frankfurt Airport two years ago. Still have about half of it.
Nose: Very smooth and delicate but with a richness behind it. Vanilla, almond and hints of fruit.
Palate: Medium. Very rounded, vanilla again, malt, still fruity.
Finish: Malth and vanilla. Warming.
A lovely Irish whiskey with a little more punch than your normal Bushmill, Jameson etc. You can feel the 10 year maturation.

Had my first bottle a year ago. I must agree bout the banana skin nose, very inviting indeed. From then on it goes down medium bodied and a little bit more burny in the finnish than I would like to. If you look for something to drink it neat better try Blackbush. This one loves a drop of water. More sophisticated than your regular whiskies, still reasonably priced to call it occasionally.
As far as bushmills goes this for me is the best. A very comfortable flavour and I agree with the banana skin nose. A very easy drink with some great flavours and after notes.
I didn't find anything objectionable with this whiskey, other than a bit more heat than I like. On the other hand, I didn't find anything exciting in it, either. The aroma and flavor are both fairly bland. Karl
A very good nose and a delivery, but the late palate and the finish have little to offer. The triple distilled Irish whiskeys have rarely a real complexity. Nevertheless, a good value for money.
