Bushmills 10 Year Old Reviews


It’s the elixir of life smooth warming and rewarding

29th August 2020

Steady quality

Very smooth, unique honey taste. My favorite, but I'm no expert.

21st July 2020

Always decent

It's a great light drop with a splash of fizzy and a cube . Nothing to nose and chew but a nice drink any day of the week .

17th July 2020


I thought it was excellent, I favoured it over Scottish malt, and I know nothing!

12th June 2020

Totally Overrated

I thought this was pretty average stuff and quite frankly I cannot see what the fuss is about
It's a little sickly and tastes of hints of caramel and it's slightly smokey, and I was quite relieved when the bottle was finished
It reminded me too much of a middle of the road blended Scotch, not my sort of thing.

One of the great Irish whiskies and exhibiting exquisitely a soul of malted barley.

The heart of Irish whiskey is barley and it’s barley’s marvelous malt character that Irish whiskey, well made, historically showcased. Competition inspires many experiments in Irish whiskey, many of them intriguing showcases of whiskey makers‘ skills of aging in various woods. But for me the best Irish whiskies remain those that brilliantly showcase barley. Bushmills 10 year old Single Malt has few equals in that regard, Knappogue 12 years old matching it in my opinion, but none superior to it as one of the crown jewels of classic Irish whiskey.

Liquid poetry !

What do I think ? Well, apart from the local price increase, I love it. It’s smooth, tasty and relaxing. This is a sipping drink that you can relax and ponder at your own pace , in short it’s relaxing and mellow at the end of the day. Pity the bottle is so small !

19th May 2020

An excellent everyday sipper!

Of course taste is subjective and personal, but in my humble opinion best value for money ratio.
Feels very smooth, easy drinking.
An excellent everyday sipper!

Great Whisky

Great Irish whisky, good taste and even better aroma.

1st January 2020

the best whiskey with a “e”

pretty good, ive been drinking alot of single malts and blends, even the bush white and black which are also my favorite blends, they make the blends with this single malt which pretty much makes it the backbone. Not bad, i agree with Bill Murray, this is a good all around whiskey, leave it to the Irish potstill, i even chose it over the johnny walker green knowing that it is a sure winner!

Bushmills and the hinto of peat

In Bushumills' Whiskey form North Ireland I always feel the hint of peat comparing with Jameson. Is it because of my illusional feeling?

17th August 2019

Best Irish Whisky I've had!

I've tried quite few lower priced Irish Whiskies and loved Jameson for a while. But this Bushmills 10 year old is infinitely better. SO SMOOTH AND TASTY.

4th April 2019

Smoother than Eric Clapton on guitar

This is a very smooth whiskey, perhaps a bit too smooth. There is really no depth here, but it's perfect for everyday sipping.

On a sidenote, the whiskey taste 100 percent like nectarine bits in yoghurt, if you add a few drops of water. Spot on! And also quite tasty.

24th March 2019

My Whiskey of Choice.

I was 17 when I first tasted it (such a rebel), and it's been my whiskey of choice ever since.

It's very smooth, and it's the best Single Malt in its price range in my opinion.

It might not mean much coming from someone who doesn't drink often, but I've yet to find a better tasting Whiskey.

21st March 2019

Give it a try

Very good, fruity and Smooth, nice spicy orange finish. I would have prefer it a bit more salty and creamy, i think it would have been a killer whisky ! Considering the Price range, Still a very good surprise.

18th October 2018

Nice, good value for your money


Nice and smooth. Kind of plain. Not really very different from some of the Powers releases. Good pricing though.

11th October 2018

First Rate

If I want "nectarine chunks in low fat yoghurt", that's exactly what I'll buy. Sounds like someone has allowed their imagination to run away! Super smooth, fruity on the palate, sweetish, with a short finish with gentle vanilla, and malty, woody notes and a hint of salted caramel. An excellent whiskey.

16th September 2018

The best.

A beautiful Single Malt. I still have have half a bottle left from my one litre bottle. Bushmills has always been my favourite single malt. Let's see Bushmills supply one litre bottles.

17th June 2018

Decent Irish whiskey

Not to be pooh-poohed it is a decent 10 yo for the price. Not outstanding but it delivers as a 10 yo. Well balance in the flavours department mild sherry and vanilla toffee. A bit subdued but easy drinking. If you want excitement-look elsewhere.

2nd June 2018

Love at the first time

1st time to try a Irish whiskey. Impressed. Very similar to Glenmorangie 18. Great price

30th January 2018

Really Pleasant

Very light, refined and pleasant with a noticeable finish. To me this is the perfect dram to sip throughout an evening without worrying being distracted about its complexity and not so rough that you want to mix it in a drink. A solid 4-star'er!

22nd January 2018


Equally as sweet, aromatic and smooth like Glenmorangie 10, and Balvenie 12 Double wood, however better palate, really interesting taste.

4th December 2017


I’m a great whiskey hobbiest and enjoy trying sharing and talking about whiskey.
I have had hundreds of types of whiskey -
This is a very lovely whiskey indeed
Enough said !

6th November 2017


the best 10 ever.

20th October 2017

For the Cautiously Experimenter of Fine Wiskey...

I heard the extremely likeable Feherty loved this single malt. Very pleasant and affordable single malt gem.

12th January 2017

A convert

I have never been a fan off Irish or Bourbon whiskey. I was therefor taken aback when at a friend's dinner party I was presented with a Bushmills Malt. Drinking it out of politeness, I was surprised at the wonderful mixture of quite lovely tastes.

The initial fruiteness left an aftertaste which was quite satisfying, the added bonus being the smoothness of the malt. I cannot wait to purchase a bottle.

4th January 2017


This is an absolut ace of a whiskey. You can get lost in the nose, which is wonderfully complex, for hours. It's smooth but offers many layers of flavor. Perfect for sipping on all day long.

Bushmills 10 has opened up the world of irish whiskey to me, and I will gladly explore it further.


1st November 2016


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

8th October 2016


5 Star.

5th October 2016

First Irish Single Malt

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 ;)

5th May 2016

Pure garbish

Doesn't taste banana skin at all.

4th May 2016

Better than Jameson

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

25th March 2016

Better than Jameson

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

21st March 2016


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

19th March 2016


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.

5th February 2016


Love this single malt. Hints of honey and chocolate. So so smooth, so money, so choice!

5th February 2016

Bland II

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.

18th October 2015


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.

15th August 2015


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.

27th February 2015


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.

16th February 2015

Excellent Value, Fruity and Floral

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.

7th January 2015


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

Best of the Bush

What a surprise. This is a great whiskey. Lots of fruit and flowers. Great dram for warmer climates. Great price too.

18th June 2014

A step up, but room to improve

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

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

No Balance

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...

8th May 2013

Bushmills, St. Patrick, and me

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 many times...and as been said, leaving me with no headache! Aim sipping some as I write this. Nice!

3rd May 2013

A good value for money

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

21st September 2012

Easy drinker

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

Blago Review

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.

1st February 2011

Brilliant Irish Whiskey

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

No headaches

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.
