Bushmills / Irish Whiskey / Please click for sizes
Bushmills‚ the golden member of the family. It’s a blend of triple distilled single malt whiskey with a lighter irish grain whiskey. The folks back at the old distillery will tell you it’s an approachable whiskey with a rich‚ warming taste of fresh fruit and vanilla. Me? Well - to me it has a fruity burst that sits on my tongue before turning to honey in my cheeks. Try it and you’ll see what I mean.
Wine Enthusiast 85 points - Early-stage sniffings find delicate aromas of green vegetables, carnations and grain mash; further air contact brings up slightly sour notes of damp soil, glue and marshmallow. Exceedingly pleasant, grainy sweet and genial on the palate. Finishes cleanly. July/2004
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - (Tried & True Award)- Toasted oats, honey roasted walnuts, coconut flesh, and golden plum dominate the nose. Smooth and round mouthfeel, with fruit coming forward backed by minerals and honey. A sweet but balanced finish ensues.March/2015
