Pick of the Bushmills
I've had this whiskey on quite a number of occasions, it is very consistent for flavour. Plenty of sherry sweetness and a bit of spice: particularly on the nose though you can taste it (mixed spice? nutmeg? mace?) too. It has a much more substantial flavour and character than Bushmills Original, 10 or 16. It's my pick from the Bushmills distillery. It's probably got some caramel added and its probably been chill filtered. If they ever bring out a version where they don't do this I'd be very interested in buying plenty of it. In the meanwhile it is still one of the best blends going.

Soooo drinkable, tasting note is not representative - not in the least astringent but I add rocks, essential in the desert heat of the uAE

Taste from Texas
Decided to give this blend a try. Quite Nice neat with a small cube! Really enjoying the sherry resolve from the aging process. Reminds me a bit of Crown Cask 16 (which is out of production I believe. But I have found a new friend in this blend. Can't wait for a cigar and a glass.

This may not be the most expensive, but its by far my favourite whiskey, (inclusing the other Bushmills varieties). Its smooth and sweet a perfect tipple to relax with.
