  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    roundness in the mouth, sweetness of malt, a little vanilla, a little caramel, slightly cooked fruits, sweet spices, a good dram for qq who wants to taste Irish or just for a starter!
    a bit of everything, but little particularity actually.

  3. marmeladow scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    palatable, uncomplicated Irish single malt, a few drops of water take away some of its youthful, metallic bitterness.
    Its price is certainly okay, but it is also not worth more than around € 27-28. Remains a little less meaningful
    • Nose
      83 83
      Nice, varied nose with a fruit salad made from ripe fruits, especially pear. Sweetness, vanilla, some marzipan and nuts. The nosing remains the most interesting part of this whisky
    • Taste
      81 81
      creamy, oily and soft mouthfeel. Fruit compote, hints of sherry, a touch of dark chocolate, vanilla, malty sweetness.
    • Finish

      Rather short, some cinnamon spice next to the sweetness with malt and vanilla. A bit bitter even with water.

    Nose - Almond, oak, banana, shortcrust pastry

    Palate - hint of cinnamon, stronger oak note, black cherry and vanilla

    Finish - Medium. Very pleasant with a certain pastry aftertaste

  6. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Undisclosed Bushmills whisky said to be aged for 4 years old in any number of 1st to 3rd-fill oloroso sherry casks.

    N: I don’t hold out much hope but there is some interest. Shades of Famous Grouse [WLP], yet far warmer and with firm notes of toasted bananas, some stewed dried fruits and a few spices.
    T: Comes with a highly tempered youthful edginess. Frustratingly but not unsurprisingly, it soon turns into grain-y malaise.
    F: Little oloroso cask calibre to speak of yet we’ve plenty more soft-spicy candied bananas to finish.
    C: With a softly softly approach for the market for which it’s intended, it’s just fine.
