    In the distillery you can still see a bottle of this whiskey, which in 1889, won a gold medal at the exhibition organized on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Great French Revolution and the opening of the Eiffel Tower.

    OK, takes time to develop, then nice fruity, some vanilla, caramel, but more is not. Easy and clear Irish mark.

  14. larswehmeier scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, easy entry-level whiskey. The sherry barrels, unfortunately, I discover neither in the nose nor in the taste.
    • Nose
      Mild and sweet. Vanilla and a little honey. Very light and delicate in the nose. A bit fruity, but unfortunately not definable for me.
    • Taste
      Light and mild at the start. Very cute. Vanilla. Nice malt note.
    • Finish
      Light and rather short. Mild and malty.

  15. vojt466 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very fruitful - mainly ripe pears, peaches and vanilla background, creamy caramel, old furniture and maybe a bit of ginger
    • Taste
      Sweet and slightly gingerly spicy flavor. The most is to feel vanilla and bananas in chocolate and malt - the taste is unfortunately flatter than the scent
    • Finish
      In reverberation malt and spiciness - medium long

  18. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Whiskey entry-level, ie simple "access", without making head, where honey, green fruits (apple), vanilla take the lead A sweetness on the palate, a soft return and a simple but persistent finish.

  19. xFabe did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    For the price an edible single malt from Ireland. The Irish have something "different", which the Bushmills in the beginner area convincingly represents.
    • Nose
      light and soft, going into the sweet fresh fruits, accompanied by light vanilla, funfair fruit candies, spice in the background
    • Taste
      first slightly alcoholic, then sweet and fruity, flowers, floral perfume
    • Finish
      in the finish, the sweetness flies quickly to an interesting spice, otherwise unfortunately a bit sprightly, a little reminiscent of NEN Ami

  21. J.K.Ch scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    It is up to me to invest in 16 yo. It tastes much to me.
    • Nose
      Fruits slightly exotic to yellow melon, vanilla and honey.
    • Taste
      Apples compared to 16 Yo are sharper, but less sour, with apple hints and vanilla. A little bark of citrus and grape and similar bitterness. Slight woodiness.
    • Finish
      Strong citrus bark and the same bitterness. Dryer, but otherwise quite uninteresting.

  22. domani scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    I have had 2 bottles of this the first one I quite enjoyed but the second one was not verry good and tasted of paint.
    There must have been some serious batch variation when they made this.

  29. wbarchive_149037 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    A pleasant one, very affordable and highly drinkable due to its sweetness. A good introduction to Ireland.
    • Nose
      Not so expressive, a bit simple, but pleasant, on vanilla, apple compote. Very sweet, very Irish.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fresh, fruity notes, typically Irish mouthfeel. A bit weak bit this is good in the overoal.
    • Finish
      Short, on light barley and vanilla.

  37. gunner_ace scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Had a dram of this at the weekend after I must admit forgetting about the bottle. Oh my word what a smooth and sweet dram with an ever so subtle hint of smokiness. The nose was very floral and quite understated, whilst the taste was a very simple one and not overly complex but I found notes of cherry, apple, rosewater and a liquorice / coffee infusion. Their was a very slight peatiness that rolled over the tongue and the finish was very short but very sweet and overall left me with a smile on my face.

    A forgotten gem in my collection, and definiitley wont be neglecting this one again. A super everyday dram at a reasonable price.

  38. Roel scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    A nice dram, but nothing special. At 43% or 46% this still might approach 80 points in my view. Yet, it is not a bad whiskey at all and affordable it is.

    • Nose
      Crispy, mellow, plants, fruit salad, fresh cucumber, bread-corn, pastry, light vanilla, chew, peach jelly.
    • Taste
      Herbs, wormwood, sour apples, vermouth, garden sorrel, mints, toasts, solid sherbet with nuts.
    • Finish
      Grainy, slightly drying, almond, pine wood, juniper?, menthol, sapwood, citric, candied orange, dried fig, pistachios, charred oak, Gozinaki (caramelized nuts), marzipan.

  42. granella2003 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    This whiskey on the nose hints of orange, yellow and green fruit wrapped in honey. The palate is found sweet grapes, summer fruit and red apples, before the cocoa and pepper come to give structure to the whole

  43. granella2003 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

     
    • Nose
      Fresh and lively aromas of honey and ripe fruit
    • Taste
      Smooth taste of vanilla, chocolate and burnt wood with a hint of spice
    • Finish
      Fresh and pure finish that dry sealing

  44. BeatF scored this whisky 82 points Photo Moderator

    interesting the comparison to a very old - 43% - tasted by me: the overall character remains approximately the same, at the departure was worked; this whiskey is a little less conspicuous; my rating remains unchanged!
    • Nose
      distinct strawberry and other berries, slightly sour background; scented
    • Taste
      velvety, spicy alpine pasture
    • Finish
      again the very distinct strawberry, then liquorice in the finish; slightly bitter, but not unpleasant at all

  45. D3US scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    A decent malt, but personally I like a bit more variety and more intense flavors.
    • Nose
      Very malty with light, sweet/sour fruits. A pastry note to this, like cake batter or cookies. Slightly spicy after a few whiffs, but overall quite soft. 
    • Taste
      Sweet, a bitter edge of dark chocolate perhaps. Still fruity, citrus fruit peels. Quite some malt again, and the soft spices come back as well.
    • Finish
      Same tastes as before, but they die out reasonably quick and in the end all that remains is a faint malt note. 

  46. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    N: malty, tobacco, al little sharp and fresh apples
    T: sweet, bitter, chocolate, yellow summer fruits, creamy coffee and wood
    F: soft later bitter - grape fruit and orange, wood, fudge, drying, mint and some coconut milk

  47. Edwin de Lange scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Very nice dram for warmer days.
    • Nose
      Light, fresh, a little alcohol.
    • Taste
      Fresh fruit, smooth and soft.
    • Finish
      Medium and fruity.

  48. HunterRomario scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      My third encounter with Bushmills went well beyond expectations. After the horror of horror with Black Bush and for me the unforgivable 16y Three Wood I tasted 10y and it is well drinkable, especially in the smell I liked, where I quite reminded Glen Ord 12y. Smell of melon, sweet spice and malt.
    • Taste
      The taste is a little thinner, thinner, so thin, but I feel the apricots and vanilla, and I do not even know what to do. Clearly the best Bushmill, of those three. As Jarda Bosak says: It will go, no.

  49. Willie JJ scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    I had remembered a bit more complexity in Bushmills than I'm finding tonight. Easy drinking whiskey though.
    • Nose
      Deep malty cereal notes. Caramel toffees.
    • Taste
      Uncomplex, a bit watery, mint toffees. Lots of mint.
    • Finish
      Chewy minty sweeties. Quite long.

  51. mmaclean scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    I like the smooth and drink ability of this 10 year old. The Bourbon comes over very subtle and is like vanilla and some lemony flavors, followed by the sherry sweetness which is just ever so present. Nutty yet delicate finish, not bad for everyday dram.

  52. drkrylov scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Distinctly almondy. Some soft, perfumy, winey spiciness.
    • Taste
      Toasted almonds, raisins, slightly burnt toffee.
    • Finish
      Delicate, elusive, flavours. Long, soft, soothing.

    Ideal for a warm (indian) summer evening

    (to start with and then onwards to a (Highland) Scotch )

  55. tomy63 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    aged mainly in American oak barrels bourbon barrels and a minor part of Spanish oak barrels containing xeres. Superb aperitif but lack of complexity
    • Nose
      very fresh and citrus fruit, citrus, flowers, vanilla
    • Taste
      fresh fruits, cereals and honey
    • Finish
      long, slight herbaceous drought

  56. Quaker scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    Whiskey nice not "headache" and easy access. Perfect for an aperitif.
    • Nose
      Clear dominance of honey with some scents of cereals (a bowl of Honey Pops somehow). Vanilla, biscuity, grassy, ​​sweet.
    • Taste
      Smooth, reminiscent of hints of honey and vanilla. Not too aggressive despite his young age.
    • Finish
      Good final that lasts.

  57. BeatF scored this whisky 82 points Photo Moderator

    It is in the finished drunk by me bottle to a older with 43%, got a gift from my now unfortunately deceased neighbor; interesting, idiosyncratic drop. Worth to drink it!
    • Nose
      slightly acidic to malt, accompanied by strawberries and mint, in the end comes after a very deep inhale still vanilla
    • Taste
      Strawberry, fruit salad, slightly biting herbs; tingles slightly on the tongue
    • Finish
      Explosion of strawberry chicken on the palate, the best moment of this whiskey; followed by a somewhat persistent, unfortunately not completely convincing finish, mainly to licorice!

    Love this whiskey had it many times and i'm sure i will have it again
    • Nose
      Fruit and honey just waltz along
    • Taste
      Smooth as velvet with vanilla adding to the fruit and honey
    • Finish
      Sweet smooth and satisfying
