Whisky Reviews for Bushmills Original

38 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 71.98 points

  1. Marshall303 scored this whisky 63 points Newbie

    Very, very solid blend in good price. It's mild and sweet, perfect for mixers but could be drunk with ice also. Light, golden colour of the liquid. A lot of sweet-honey notes and grassy elements. For sure, I would bet on Bushmills White in comparisons with Scotch whiskey at similar price.

    Colour: light, golden, natural, similar to apple juice

    Nose: sweet - honey, pear, apple, a little bit alcoholic but mild, vanilla, grassy notes

    Taste: sweet but a bit spicy, honey, vanilla, grassy, alcoholic taste after some time

    Finish: sweet, warm, spicy, then 'wooden' and at the very end it's grassy/hay

  2. Kilo1 scored this whisky 60 points Expert Junior

    I do not share the enthusiasm from this distillery. Empty whiskey, boring, although not bad quality. But for my money it’s very expensive.

  3. Malthead19 scored this whisky 54 points Expert Senior

    - classic Irish pub whiskey
    - only to be enjoyed with beer
    - clear typical touch of a "cheaper" blend
    - gives significantly better "simple" Irish blend whiskeys
    • Nose
      - smells strongly of alcohol,
      - typically young sprittig unpleasant "gray smell"
      - but also the sweet Irish touch in the background
    • Taste
      slight burning sensation on the palate and on the lips, watery character, somewhat sweet, unfortunately also tastes like a "cheap whiskey"
    • Finish
      short finish with metallic aftertaste

  4. nallacam scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

  8. drinkwater scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    It's an average budget irish whiskey. Not very complex but not too shabby for drinking with friends or just to relax
