I'm a single malt Scotch Whisky drinker, period! Then this pretender comes along and oh my god I'm a convert! Mildly sweet and tempered with a fruity nose a medium palate with mild malt, smoke and just a tease of peat in the aroma and on the palate. This formulation is what the joy of a sipping Whiskey is all about. Warming and approachable this Irish Whiskey is a winner and has made more than a few of my friends into converts also. Enjoy!!

Good value, smooth and nutty but not as good as 10 year single malt.

Beautiful. My favourite.

Excellent sipping whiskey. Looking forward to pouring up my first Blackbush Manhattan.

Wow talk about bang for buck . Tried this for the first time last night and I was blown away! Nose had the familiar smell of sherry, sweet on the palate, smooth silky finish! I would prefer a higher abv since its so smooth, but I'm not going to complain at this price point.

It is the first and the last whiskey which is enjoyed at our house and so my bottle of Black Bush is always empty. Hence I am ordering more and writing this review.

A great whisky for a great evening. Anyone can enjoy this. Feels like it floats on your tongue. Lots of flavour and finish but in a gentle, non eye flickering way.
20th May 2016
Beautiful smooth tasting Whiskey will certainly purchase againThanksAlan

Been involved in the whisky industry for well quite sometime. I do appreciate this whisky but I do find it has an overwhelming synthetic banana taste to it. Reminds me of when I was a child and would get that penicillin that tasted like bananas. It's just my own palate. Too each their own. Slainte!

That last one. I've never tasted anything called Jurassic. It was Jura. My bad
28th January 2016
Not sure why you'd give this 1 star Saint it tastes cheap. Thew you go to we all have different tastes in this big wide world. I had this around Christmas time along with a bottle of Jurassic, Talisker and Penderyn (lucky me) all of which are in my opinion outstanding whiskeys. So I wasn't expecting miracles from Blackbush, however, this one is a lovely little drink. At under £25 a bottle, I highly recommend this one. And there ladies and gents, is my first ever whisky review. I thank you
I got REALLY into whisk(e)y in the last couple of years, and admit that I went a bit overboard buying all kinds of scotch, japanese whisky, irish whisky, bourbons and rye. I took classes at several whisk(e)y bars in NYC. In the end, believe it or not, one of my favorite go to whiskeys has become Bushmill's Black Bush. Personally, I like it better than Red Breast and Greenspot, which I tried to like better because they were about twice the price. I still enjoy a peaty Ardbeg or Laphroaig from time to time, or some Woodford Reserve Rye, by if I had to move to a deserted island and could only bring a case of one whiskey it would be the Black Bush.

I usually have JW Green Label, Maccalan 12y fine oak, since I like Wiskey strait or with 2 ice cubes, now the Black Bush that is new in Mexico at a very affordable price around 30 USD and I just love the flavor, for half the price of the above mentioned. Triple Distilled Ireland whiskey is rare in Mexico, I tried it when I lived in Chicago and loved it. Now, about the Black Bush, the taste is awesome, sheery almost sweet, not astringent at all, you just don't feel the alcohol, still it has some complexities you won't find in JW Black Label or similar priced Single Malt scotches, that is why I give it 5 stars
31st December 2015
Honestly i d not buy it again. Taste cheap blend, the white one is better. If u like sweet add some blackberry honey . not recommended
15th December 2015
Absolutely the best Bushmill whiskey around.
13th September 2015
Buyer beware, this whiskey is almost too smooth. I put it in my 235ml flask to keep track of how much I drank, and after 1 shot I was drinking it straight from the flask with no chaser. This whiskey is seriously that good. I'm new to whisky reviews so I couldn't really describe the nose or the taste but I can tell you it is up there with the best scotch or bourbon I have ever drank. It is much stronger than it tastes which I believe is a good thing, it doesn't have the burn of Glenmorangie or of Booker's bourbon, it almost has a sweet taste. Overall I think this may become my go to whiskey
10th September 2015
Excellent nose, good body, light, floral, sweet and fruit. Long and spicy finish. for $30 this is really good, would buy again! Overall: this is like a really fruity and well bodied Speyside style whisky, the 80% malt is definitely showing.
17th August 2015
This is my first time to ever "like" something with alcohol on line. But I a compelled to say how good this is. Smooth, sweet and aromatic. I'm loving it.! I am very impressed. This will be my favorite for a long time.
19th July 2015
Amazing whiskey for the price. Excelent taste. Once of my favorite.
11th June 2015
I have enjoyed several bottles of this godly brew as gifts from Celtic friends. I have a bottle saved for the day after my last chemo infusion.
4th June 2015
if you want to drink really good whisky by a reasonable price: buy black bush. McCallan, Achentoschen, Bruichladdich aren't really better, but look at their price...
16th May 2015
.. yeah .. just good for irish coffee .. nothing else !
9th May 2015
Black Bush great taste one of the nicest whiskeys I have ever tasted reasonly priced will always be in my top 10.
26th April 2015
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.
16th February 2015
Soooo drinkable, tasting note is not representative - not in the least astringent but I add rocks, essential in the desert heat of the uAE
22nd December 2014
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.
13th December 2014
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.
23rd November 2014
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.
14th October 2014
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.
14th September 2014
this was my introduction to whisky many years ago and isstill one of my favorites.
28th March 2014
Years ago a friend of mine gave me this bottle, just good.
18th March 2014
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.
21st February 2014
6th February 2014
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?
28th November 2013
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!

3rd April 2013
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!
