Definitely got underripe bananas on the nose. Taste of spicy bread. Non specific honeyed finish. Didn't expect to like it, but I do

After sampling most popular Irish blends, I've got to say... wow! This is an entirely different category (take note, Speyside lovers)! Rich, spicy, and clean. Totally looking forward to trying pure pot still and single grain Irish whiskey. Highland Park can wait ;)

Doesn't taste banana skin at all.

Smooth, fruity, delicious, and not Jameson's.

I've only reviewed scotch on here but got a bottle of this for st. Paddys day and was pleasantly surprised very smooth with that sweet honey/caramel flavor I associate with Irish whisky .I actually really enjoyed this almost as good as Middleton I'd say and way cheaper .the sugarbear

A excellent quality.great sweet flavor.really give you a good time to enjoy your senses'

Sure there are better scotches out there in the $50 plus range but this single malt is a very high quality whisky that's exceptionally smooth and full of perfectly balanced sweet flavor without being too acidic and scotchy.

Love this single malt. Hints of honey and chocolate. So so smooth, so money, so choice!
First I should say that I love pure, simple, unpeated malts. I even prefer the base 10 year versions, because I don't want the extra sherry or oak flavor that comes with further ageing. Glengoyne 10 is my favorite, and Glenmorangie 10 is a close second.But even I think Bushmills 10 is too bland. Yes, it is remarkably smooth. It goes down easy because there is so little flavor to get in the way.

My 1st introduction to Whiskey and it's £5 cheaper here than anywhere else I can find it.Neat it tastes like eating ripe Saint Agur with a Tawny port in the mouth. The after taste has a hint of coffee with a slight oaky dry feel that comes through longer.On the rocks this tastes of ripe Peaches & vanilla Ice-cream drizzled with honey.

Fruity, brown sugar, medium legs. Harsh before adding water, very smooth after that. Pale gold colour, not too appealing. Great companion while writing an article on art and culture.

Perfectly drinkable but frankly a bit insipid. The least interesting of all the Bushmills range. Faint whiff of cocoa, nose almost isn't there at all to my mind. Taste is also quite bland - a bit of dried fruit (similar to Black Bush but not as full or well-rounded), faint custard and a slight (heather?) finish. Do not under any circumstances add water - the flavour just falls away entirely. If you want the best of the Bushmills single malt character you really need to fork out for something a bit older. I've tried the 16 year old and that seems to be getting there - the 21 is a bit steep for me. Alternatively get a bottle of the Black Bush. The B10 year old is great if you want something very palatable neat - it is very smooth and inoffensive: perhaps you want something easy to drink to start your whisk(e)y journey or to give a dram to a friend who's not a regular whisk(e)y drinker, otherwise I'd give it a miss.

Quite a bit of complexity here, I find more fruit than what is suggested by The Chaps review, and even something nearly floral. The palate is good, fruity, but not mind blowing, but I find the finish back to that strong mixed fruitiness with hints of flowers. Love the start and the end, and its quite cheap, probably my daily dram moving forward.
22nd January 2015
not at all a man with a fine palate, but I do catch the hint of vanilla.

It's hard to write even a couple of paragraphs describing Bushmills because you all know exactly what it is. It's smooth and really nice but Like say, Highland Park It isn't your favourite whisky but it might be your 2nd,3rd or 4th favourite. If someone offered you a case of it you'd be "Mmm Yes please"!Really good "middle of the road" whisky that would not scare off newcomers.

Шикарний ірландський сінглмальт. Легкий, приємний квітковий аромат. Запах бананів не відчув. Але ноти ванілі та яблук проскакують.
8th November 2014
What a surprise. This is a great whiskey. Lots of fruit and flowers. Great dram for warmer climates. Great price too.
18th June 2014
Bushmills 10 is a big step up from the very bland Bushmills Original blend, but not more than I would expect from the premium version.While quite pleasant, the 10 year old falls way short of the port finished 16 year old.
21st March 2014
Great whiskey. Very fruity. This was my first Irish whiskey.
16th January 2014
Unpretentious smooth and palatable. Drink neat and slow to enjoy the subtlety of this excellent whiskey.
8th December 2013
not much to say about it noting stands out bland to be better off with the standard bottle or the new honey batch
4th November 2013
It is a pleasant whiskey to sit and drink but not complex or even particularly expressive of the Bushmills Character. The Sherry outweighs any Oak. It's not bad but I would stick to Black Bush or even the original. Fair point on the banana nose though...

It had been nearly 25 years since I had had any whiskey when I found myself in Ireland for St. Patrick's Day. Sometime after dinner the guys in my cousins' bagpipe band decided to get this American acquainted with good Irish Whiskey. What a treat! I was surprised at how smoothly it went down...so many times...and as been said, leaving me with no headache! Aim sipping some as I write this. Nice!
3rd May 2013
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.
23rd October 2012
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

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.
9th July 2012
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.

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.But check out the 16 y/o Bushmills as well!
31st July 2010
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.Mark - whivie.be
