Bushmills 16 Year Old Bottling Note

An award-winning 16 year old Irish single malt from Bushmills based in Northern Ireland. Aged in three different cask types: bourbon, Port and sherry maturation imparts notes of fruit, nuts and spices - a great example of the influence of different cask maturation. The brand has managed to retain its small batch philosophy for over 400 years, which is wonderful.

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.

Bushmills 16 Year Old Reviews

You have got to try this Whiskey!

Outstanding! Presented to me on fathers day. The nose is of honey and nougat with a sweet spice-malty finish. I love this, I will nurse this bottle as long as I possibly can.

5th August 2020

Just wonderful

I bought this on the back of all the reviews below and am very glad I did so. It really is a terrific whisky. I had the fortune of trying the 21 yo (also excellent) ....but think I actually prefer this one. Highly recommended.

30th June 2020

A first class dram!!

In terms of nose and taste the Bushmills 16 year old is up there with the 21 year old but slightly less expensive. Taste is subjective but it's hard to find fault with this expression - or any one of the Bushmills range.

14th March 2020

Highly recommended

One of the best whiskey I ever had, starting from the noise it impressed me completely!! The palate is a balanced mix of spices and fruits and finish is absolutely smooth and stunning.

A must try and I highly recommends it!!

It tells you how boring a whiskey can be

This is a whiskey. This is just a whiskey.

Solid but let down by a key fault

The nose is pleasant but light, and does not really cast a spell on you in anyway. The palate improves matters as it has a jammy taste with a lot of those dark fruits coming to the fore. The finish is decent, but not particularly long lasting. What affects this whisky for me, and the reason why I won't be back for a second bottle, is mouthfeel. It is really thin, one of the thinnest I have ever experienced, and gives the finish a watery complexion due to this. It lets down what would be a really solid whisky...well still is a solid whisky, but it could be so much moreit if wasn't for that mouthfeel.

A Fine Bush!

A delicious, smooth whiskey filled with all the flavours I love. On offer at £75 is a good deal, although I wouldn't pay the full £100 for it.

5th October 2019

Най-добра цена !

На тази цена £75, забравяш Alardis на Glendronach 18yo и много други до Siena на Macallan !
Чудесна цена !

Someone of a similar name made this.

Nectar of the Gods, say no more.

Изпих една бутилка...

Вече мога да легна и да умра...
Това е велик вкус .Имам още бутилки
в колекцията, по-старите с кутии. Те са
по-красиви и ароматни, сладки... Ех,
какво да правя!?

中国市场需要你!喝威士忌有三次震到我,第一次是喝到烟熏味道的威士忌,第二次是日本威士忌,但三次是你。bushmills16Y 入口柔顺的感觉一瞬间让我想到 在喝一杯18年的日威。苦寻多日终又得一只。

3rd June 2017

My son loves this whiskey, really sorry it is discontinued.

My son loves this whiskey, he says that only the 21 year old Bushmills can beat it. Hope it comes back again. Especially as the 21 year old version is so pricey.

12th May 2017


Don't 'arf get you drunk.....

24th December 2016

i was wrong. this is right!

Being from a big producer I expected this whiskey to be all mouth and no trousers, but I was wrong. Smooth, mellow yet full of flavour, this whiskey is infinitely sippable and fandangos on the palette. The label lies though; the finish is mango all day long.

Bushmills 16 yo

Lovely full bodied whisky,fills the mouth and smooth lingering finish,still on sale in Cyprus 2016

Surprise Birthsay Gift

I got this from my for my birthday on the 28th. I have heard of the all-around great taste of this amazing 16year. I can't wait to try it as I have always been an avid bushmills drinker.

Bushmills 16 (Newer bottling)

Apart from being a very good Whiskey, the company either by pure luck, or a calculated effort, has managed to provide a closure (being cork in this case) that actually FITS the bottle perfectly, as opposed to 95% of other manufacturers .Well done Bushmills, and TAKE NOTE you other "Shortcutters"

5th September 2016

"Age matters"

For a 40% Alc/Vol , I Would generally steer clear. In this case, the Whisky has retained the necessary body and flavour that normally requires a higher strength. All I can say is, what a damn shame it is so hard to get,as I grabbed the last 2 bottles that were available in a local Melbourne liquor store.
In closing," EPIC" - grab it if you can!

30th August 2016

New to Irish whiskey

For years I tried to understand the fuss over Scotch Whisky...
I have found heaven in a bottle, the Irish way...My sister returned from Ireland and presented me with the 12 reserve and the 16 year olds. Excellent from start to finish, the 16 is flawless.

30th July 2016

Please get this back in!

Blue cheese & Sultanas hit you as soon as you take this into your mouth. Its light bodied, juicy & sweet from the sherry casks, with spicy wood notes which make your mouth tingle from the Bourbon casks, then you get chocolate, tonka bean & vanilla as you swallow. It leaves your palate feeling slight dry & your tongue with a warm sun kissed glow.

Bushmills Three Woods

The best I ever had !!!!!

11th February 2016

If you like it smooth...

Then this is it. It's absolutely delicious, and just spooky smooth on the finish. I've never had an Irish whisky, or any Scotch, bourbon, Canadian, nothing with the "what was that!?" smooth factor. And incredible achievement.

11th January 2016


This is the smoothest and cleanest sip I have ever experienced!

28th December 2015

Second Chance

I have tried Bushmills in the past and I was left happy but not impressed in any significant way. But after having this bottle I am, to say the least, amazed. I came to me under high recommendations by a local distributer, it was so complex, smooth, and I would say soothing. It definitely reminded me of my first whiskey with my old man so many years ago, maybe this was it, and I plan on savoring the next bottle with him.

19th August 2015

Great Whiskey

One of my favorite Irish Whiskeys, great flavors and very unique taste

26th June 2015


I started drinking 16 several years ago, after years of working my way up from Old Bushmills, through Black Bush and 10. Here in the western US, I find few Irish drinkers - scotch and American whiskey and bourbon are big - when introducing others to 16, my come-on is: "Are you a scotch (bourbon, etc.)drinker?" When the answer is "Yes", my reply is "Not anymore." and I offer a glass of 16. When they try it, their expression is pure pleasure. I've converted so many over the years, I think Bushmills owes me a commission.

3rd June 2015


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

7th May 2015

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 ;-)

26th March 2015

K Club

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!

8th February 2015

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.

11th January 2015

Oh man

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

17th December 2014

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.

2nd December 2014


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.

2nd April 2013

Tony Brazao

One of the best tasting and most enjoyable whiskies I've ever drank - highly recommende - super smooth.

27th January 2013

So sweet
