Whisky Reviews for Bushmills 16-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.25 points
- Few of all - the motto of this whiskey, few derivatives, little brightness, expression, volume, depth; feeling of empty space, empty space; of the pluses - very smooth, drinkable.
Closed, dry, woody notes, light shades of dry herbs, animal motifs, some mineral tones.
Soft, enveloping, oak, light notes of damp cardboard, furniture varnish, raisins, bark bitterness, ginger, burnt caramel.
Light, invigorating, oak, varnish, a little dry herbs, ginger.
Restrained, soft, somewhat slender, although very pleasant. Vanilla, floral notes, red apple, passion fruit, multifruit juice, plum jam, sweet pastries, malt motifs, hay, wood sawdust. 22
Light-bodied, moderately sweet. Malt, black pepper, water with sugar, woody notes, fruit candies, mineral water, alcoholic and herbal bitterness. 20
Between short and medium, with woody notes, herbal bitterness and a hint of menthol. 20
Light, strong, round, not very complex whiskey, as for me, not very different from their dozens. Balance 21
- Very nice Bushmills, tasty and balanced, with vivid notes of tropical fruits. Very drinkable. Quite hard to get.
Sweet, berries (currants, gooseberries), vanilla, light honey notes, some tropical fruits, hint of oak
Sweet, fruity, menthol notes, fruit bubblegum, strawberry jam
Medium-long, slowly getting dry, fruity, grass notes, walnuts, light oak
- a 16 year old, typically Irish SM!
sweetness spicy, peppery, a little on Madeira wine
wood, malt, maderised scents, wine also cooked somewhere, all sparingly
no singularity, but a mixture of scents all in their places, for a moment strong
medium, but on the same aromas and sweetness that extends, important woody glass bottom
