General description

A very decent intro to the world of Bushmills...

Nose

Very interesting nose, with vanilla and caramel and some citrus notes. As always with Bushmills, it's a Speysider in waiting, sharing many of the characteristics of its Scottish cousins. Promising.

Palate

Much as on the nose, adding some kind of floral vibe towards the end, like eating a rose petal or something mad like that... Yes, citrus fruit and ripe green apple with sugary vanillas and caramels.

Finish

Medium. Consistent, with the nose and palate flavours running from start to finish. A good introduction to Irish whiskey, while also good on the rocks and as a mixer. Yes, very good indeed.

General description

One of my personal favorites of casual Irish Whiskey. This really beats Jameson, and has a more malt based mash bill which shows. This is good, and cheaper than Jameson and better in my opinion. Its the obvious choice.

Rating: 71/100, +1 for value, +/- 0 for availability (its everywhere.) Final- 72/100

Nose

Lemon citrus, Honey, green apples, maltiness, Graham crackers.

Palate

Graham crackers, lemon citrus, honey, vanilla, nuget, maltiness, milk chocolate and berry.

Finish

Berry, milk chocolate, honey, lemon citrus.

General description

Budget Irish. An ol' reliable bottle. It's fruity, and slightly sweet. It is smooth without being altogether boring. It's not pretentious. It just is what it is. It reminds me of a light pear and apricot brandy. A fine affordable, available, no-nonsense pour with a crisp refreshing finish. I like it neat in a chilled glass, on a spring evening.

General description

This is a very light whiskey. The smell is sweet and soft with a littlebit of sweet citrus fruit like a mandarin orange. The taste is very up front, is light and mildly sweet. the Burn is very minimal and comes immediately. the taste is gone before a traditional finish would come.

It is very simple but is pleasant. Would be a good drink to wake up the palate for another drink

As a summer dram on the rocks you can’t really complain with this one. Comparing side by side with it’s contemporaries of similar price (Tullamore & Paddy’s) this is my least favorite, but one wouldn’t notice unless comparing.

Forgettable and inoffensive, it’s great for sipping in the summer heat when you don’t really feel like thinking about your whisky

Has both a sweet and dry quality to it. has a very light honeysuckle and herbal note.

Me sorprendió, no diría exquisito pero si selecto, este bushmills es realmente delicioso sin cansar, con un gusto a humo y a vainilla deliciosos

Nose

En Mariz sin ir de entendido es realmente una orquesta, si tiene un primer golpe a alcohol pero cuando inhalas con la boca abierta de sienre el humo y el discos de la Canela y la vainilla, quizás algo de naranja

Palate

delicioso te invita anretenerlo ya que el alcohol no quema tu lengua es delicado, sedoso grácil, aquí los sabores pasan de la naranja manzana a la Canela,

Finish

quizás cortó, un retrogusto que deja algo que desear porque lo quieres igual de largo y delicado, pero sin dejar de ser sabroso.
