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

I am a Jack Daniel guy. but I do love an irish. and Bushmills has always been my brand. Blsck Bush is very very good. the test is excellent. this is a sophisticated high class product.

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.

Much better than original Bushmills. Drinkable. Recommend.
I prefer and generally only drink singles but this is lovely. I prefer this as a daily drinker to anything else.

Hey, it's one of the better Irish blends, but you've really got to like sherry. Nice oily texture and spicy resinous nose, but the finish is really overly sweet, almost syrupy.

For the price you can't find better lovely sherried whisky
Living in Scotland means having to really struggle to climb over the classic malts to get to this my favourite - so good to find it on line. First whiskey I tasted - given to me by my daddy - what a great education! Love it and am now cultivating the husband's palette - hence this as an Xmas present. What more could you want?

No contest.... Bailey Nicol Jarvie may occasionally question the Black Bush dominance at this price .... My first whiskey love... I hold it in fond memories.... I revisit it regularly..... (I shamefully admit I have consistently been a cheater on all my loves :-( ) Yamazaki, Dalmore, Green Spot, Hibiki... they all have my heart.... but I stray every so often and return to the wonderful experience of Black Bush!

Fantastic, never lets you down. Still quite low down in Bushmills pecking order but enjoyable on its own right. Go slow!
23rd December 2012
Sweet, sweet and some sherried tones. That's all.
23rd October 2012
For the price, arguably one of the best blends on the market!
