Bushmills 16 Year Old Bottling Note

A 16 year old Irish single malt from Bushmills aged in three different cask types: bourbon, port and sherry. The result is a beautiful whiskey which was awarded Gold at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition…

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A classic Irish nose of honey, yoghurt and tinned stone fruit, this also has a lovely cassia bark character which develops in the glass.

Palate: Spiced and rich with juicy summer fruits, Christmas spices, pine oil, manuka honey and peaches in syrup.

Finish: Thick and syrupy with notes of red berries and Golden Syrup.

    As others have said, this knocks spots of the 21 year old, and it's half the brainer. Best Bushmills by far.

    cat piss

    Tasted it on irish bar in DK. Expected a lot from bushmills 10y and 16y. Palate: honey, vanilla, smooth creamy, and then cat piss, vanilla, nothing. Death finish. Maybe irishmen should not tripple distilled there whiskey. Now I much more prefer Whisky ;-)

    For its price, ok. Glad to see the end of the bottle. Bit of a harsh bite to her. Invest a little extra for some Black Bush!

    Guilty pleasure

    Enjoyed 2/3 of a bottle with and at, my neighbours last night. Having seen the price I'm feeling guilty that I helped to demolish what turned out was a present from his wife...oops.

    Oh man

    This is amazing drink. I can drink it every day. Wow... This is real taste. Recommend.

    Save for the 21

    I didn't find anything special here. It's somewhere between a Glenlivet 18 and an Aberlour/Tomatin 18, without being as good as any of them. It's got a bit of an antiseptic taste to it, similar to Glenlivet, but not as spritely; much darker like the latter two. The 21 is one of my all-time favorites, but this one just didn't do it for me. It's not *bad*, it's just not something I'd personally get again.

    this to me is the best in irish whiskey to date much smoother than 10 year old with a more full bodied tast nice colour too a must

    29th October 2014

    Beautiful color and flavor

    Very smooth whiskey with a great color and nice sweet notes.

    4th October 2014

    Superb Nectar from Heaven

    I bought this as I just loved the beautiful colour in the bottle. When I tasted it I couldn't believe just how delicious it was. It may not suit all palates but is worth a try for the serious Malt enthusiast who will try more than one brand.

    31st July 2014

    top of favorites list

    After visiting the distillery and being disappointed with the 10 and 12, the sales person knew I was interested in nose and palate together, since the others only provided one or the other. Bingo! This even provides a very nice finish and is affordable to boot!
    I am enjoying it right now and and thrilled to have such a great new whiskey. Seriously, very pleased...

    30th May 2014

    Worth every penny

    Very smooth and balanced, a little light on the palette, not as creamy as I would like, but the finish is exceptional. I rate it extra star just because of the price/quality ratio.

    7th April 2014


    smooth with vanilla, honey and port notes. Very smooth finish. best irish whiskey i've tasted so far!

    20th March 2014

    uno de los mas grandes

    perfecto en todos los sentidos,una maravilla de olor ,sabor ,paladar,etc

    11th March 2014


    was looking to get myself a bottle of this after such rave reviews,but although i usually always order from mater of malt, its a full 10 pound cheaper on the whiskey exchange website. Don't know why the price difference for the same product is so different,shame i have to order from elsewhere

    11th January 2014

    Love this whiskey

    Best bushmills whiskey by a long way - forget the 21yo buy two bottles of this instead

    1st January 2014


    I taste peach, vanilla, toffee, dried fruits... its just the port and sherry that blast it into space. Old enough and young enough to be in that perfect place. This, and Lagavulin 16.. the only two whiskies you ever need to drink again.

    28th December 2013


    I'm not a fan of Irish whiskey however this one is worth every cent. amazing thick full bodied mouth feel and intense fruit tones.

    3rd December 2013

    Best value

    Best value whiskey around. Love the flavor, i just want to keep on sipping but I will make a fool of myself if I do.

    30th October 2013

    Crazy good

    can't get much better

    30th October 2013

    Love it!

    a great great whiskey. just a hair under the 21 year old in terms of taste but it's much much better value and my preferred drink. eyoooo to the limivady crowd! I'm from Carrickfergus

    30th October 2013


    Really good stuff! Very smooth with a lot of flavour.

    28th October 2013


    What a stuff! Its unreal defo one of the best malts! So so smooth, u can even try add a bit of water for even more depth and flavour! Class

    26th October 2013


    Came on here looking for some of you guys opinions before I bought and what did I stumble upon, someone talking about my wee town of Limavady above haha

    3rd October 2013


    Drunk it on hols in Limavady. Been looking for it with out success back in Scotland. Well worth the price.

    22nd June 2013

    So, so good...

    This whiskey is simply wonderful to try. It's really hard to imagine from the tasting notes here, but I assure you, it is well worth giving a go. It's packed full of flavour - sweet and fruity with a wonderful warmth.

    17th April 2013

    Awesome Irish whiskey

    Wow, didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did! Superb tasting single malt Irish whiskey that stands up to his Scotch cousins easily. Creamy mouthfeel and bursting with flavor and a longish distinctive finish. My current favorite whiskey.
