    I prefer this Bushmills to the Cooley (1992), it's fruitier and much bigger 84/85
    • Nose
      lemon and lemon zest (loads of them, smells pretty sour, but in a very pleasant way) and pears, much fruitier than the 1992, and much less of this wet streets, wet concrete, limestone, chalk, wax
    • Taste
      quiet a big body for such a light malt, gentle, fruity start, then some green pepper evolves, the lemon zests grow
    • Finish
      much bigger than the 1992 - at the end some very light smoke tunes in

    Tasting note from a miniature.
    Less grassy than the 1993, more caramel instead and it has a bit more (oily) body, which is what that one misses. It seems a bit more mature than that one. And it's less malty than the 1995. I think I like this one best of the three.
    • Nose
      Pear, lime, vanilla, apple, caramel, straw, candle wax and a whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Apple, pear, citrus, vanilla, caramel and pepper.
    • Finish
      Caramel, apple, pear, peach, light spices and a whiff of smoke.

    Can´t understand the high rating to be honest. Tastes alcoholic and kinda boring to me.

    This is lovely stuff. I could drink it anytime. Yum!
    • Nose
      Clean, citrus, tangerines, malt underneath.
    • Taste
      Hugely fruity and fresh. Almost fizzing.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Lovely waves of juicy fruits coming again.
