Whisky Reviews for Bushmills Black Bush
13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.38 points
- Solid "daily". Dry-ish whiskey with fruitiness, honey and vanilla. Easy and pleasant. At around 25€ it's great value for money.
- Sweet, tasty, pleasing blend, comes from beginners experience good, 25 € / liter are OK.
Honey, caramel, slightly grainy, a touch of cocoa powder and a light, fresh, somewhat artificial note (floral / fruity), very mild and sweet overall (nix "bad" black)
in the mouth a little bit "fuller" than the nose can expect, round, sweet, tasty, malt, caramel, some hazelnut cream and raisins
Short to medium, milk chocolate, here you notice oak, a bit scratchy, dry

- Not quite convincing in the nose, respectable on the tongue and a real surprise in the end ... very mixed ... (70/100)
Dry-fruity with subtle honey and vanilla tones, as well as gooseberry and kiwi
Fairly sweet with a clear but pleasant grain note
Now again rather dry and surprisingly long; lightly occupies the palate
- A nice blend. The Malt content is quite high at 75 - 80% for a blend. It is said that the malt is about 8 years old and comes exclusively from their own distillery. Two Grain Whiskeys are to come for this. Lets drink well on hot summer days.
Very shy. It takes a while for the nose to reveal its character. Light, fresh and soft. Milk chocolate, vanilla, malt.
Creamy like a caramel and slightly oily, but still with a refreshing lightness. The grain content comes through only slightly.
Rather short. Leaves a sweet malty note.
- Decent dram.
For 18 EUR per liter at duty-free shops it is unbeatable.
Complex and fagrant nose of honey cake, fried fruit, caramel a bit of sherry and other
Not so complex as nose, dynamic and a little sharp
- An excellent blended whiskey, that holds its own next to quite a few
malts. And less than 35 EUR for a one liter bottle. Now that is value for
The nose needs a bit of time. It starts soft and accessible with both
grain and raisins, mandarin and some caramel. A bit floral, some chocolate, praline
and rum. Baked apples. Cinnamon. Quite a nice mix.
On the palate, it is wide awake. Honeysweet with a sharp edge from the
grain, that is immediately softened by a rumlike sweetness. Apricots, yellow
raisins and a light bit from the spices. The sherry is prominent, but under
controle. The next sip offers grain cookies with chocolate. Honey. Hints of
nuts and a touch of oak towards the end.
The finish is not overly long, but very pleasant with a nice balance
between the fruit and the toasted oak.
- The Black Bush is an old whiskey, a true symbol, the demonstration of what Ireland can do when he has to pull out of the blended full of body. Here we savor a taste that is a mountain of fresh fruit, although the juicy raisins and a handful of spices both sweet and savory, make changes direction continuously in a delightful zig.zag beginning to end.
