Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
Insider knowledge: Bushmills 21 Year Old whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from Ireland. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Bushmills 21 Year Old whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
Nose: Rich toffee, honey, spiced fruit notes and dark mocha.
Palate: Chewy, dates, pecans, grapes and mango.
Finish: Sweet, syrupy pipe tobacco and mint.
This is one of my favorite whiskeys, and indeed one of the first 2 bottles I bought on my 21st birthday. It's rather like candy on the tongue.
That being said have you chaps lost your minds!? This is a bottle that can be had for less than half that here in reputable bottle shops here in Lower Manhattan, where everything is absurdly expensive.

great dram but as been said above, it's cheaper than advertised here- I can get it for $95.99 at my local package store. At that price it's the best Irish and definitely one of the best whiskeys on the planet period.

Love this, can't beat it but its not $225...its around $110 in most places I've seen.
Full marks from me
