I bought a bottle of this on a nostalgia trip as my family came from Antrim area before emigrating to New Zealand in 1875. To drink it is nice, a bit bland if I say must say so.Iv'e got a bottle of Black Bush to try which is sitting waiting for the day I finish this (and I will), I hope it is much better, the reviews indicate it will be. Perhaps the original a good first Irish non malt whisky that will not disappoint.

I used to be a Scotch drinker, but while visiting with a friend was served Bushmills. Wow. I really like it. It is smooth, very easy to drink, and it has replaced Scotch in my liqueur cabinet. Good price to for the quality.

Decent, cheap whiskey that is very smooth and easy to drink. Lemony, slightly sweet, and a bit of woodiness.

Awful taste. It is utterly unpalatable, and tastes lime something you'd use to get drunk. If you want REAL quality, avoid this one.

Have been a fan of Jameson for a good few years and tried this recently - actually prefer it and is generally a tad cheaper. A very decent blend for the price, imo. Will definitely buy again and would choose over Jameson now!

Fairly bland, but for the price it is about what one should expect.

I like to have a bottle of Bushmills in our house pub at all times if possible. A lovely Irish whiskey - smooth, sweet, tangy, and full-flavoured...I have no idea why Jameson is even remotely popular when one could have Bushmills (or other Irish whiskies) instead. Lots of honey and citrus zest, with a creamy mouthfeel. Not complex, but delicious and dependable.

Very good whiskey, well made and so easy to drink. A great place to start if you are new to Scotch or Irish.

for a cheaper whiskey it is quite drinkable. however I find it very much lacks flavour. a little sweet, but I found the finish almost non existent. My favourite whiskey for this price band would be Grants by far. I would not buy this again unless I could not get hold of something else.

I don't know why, but I get a bunch of banana in the nose on this one. As I sip, I'm wishing I had something with a bit more bite. But I do enjoy it for the money, especially since you can find it in just about every pub in town..

Just about the best value in a bottle that I've found.I'm mostly a single malt Scotch guy, but I find myself really enjoying this very smooth Irish spirit with a different palate.I've noticed a real chocolate sense on the nose, and the back of the tongue, with a little spice on the back of the throat.It goes down easy, and tastes mighty fine for the price.If you're curious about it, I can't recommend jumping on this one enough.I certainly like to keep a bottle in my cabinet at all times.

For the price an excellent whiskey.

If you are on a budget this one is a terrific option. Intrinsic good quality and authenticity, very approachable yet distinctive. 3 stars easily, the half a star because I am feeling generous and also because of very good memories attached to this whiskey.

Yeah, this is drinkable but not particularly impressive really. Of all the most popular whiskeys found in pubs this is probably the best choice.Jason Breen

For such a cheap, entry-level whisky, the nose on this is fantastic.Gets a bit of a bad rap next to Jameson but I'd choose this in a heartbeat.How have they got shortbread into the nose?? Love it

I love the way it goes down, so smooth and easy to drink.i love the taste not to bitter not sharp.I can easily polish a bottle off in an evening.

This is a really special Whiskey. Okay, it's an entry-level blend and will never be up there with the big-boys; it can be a bit 'petroly', especially if enjoyed too quickly. But overall, I love Bushmills, the original somehow captures the quintessential Bushmills taste and is a great companion for any night, at home or in the pub. I have enjoyed this all around the world.

This stuff is charming; relaxed, fruity, a bit woody yet controlled, substantial and refined...No complaints from me really..."the little whiskey that could", well,well.
12th January 2012
I'm not satisfied with the smell. A bit of "fuel" or something that spoils it and makes it not worhty as sipping alone. Maybe this is to be expected from an entry level whiskey. I will definitely try their 10y singelmalt. /N
