  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Sweet, tasty, pleasing blend, comes from beginners experience good, 25 € / liter are OK.
    • Nose
      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)
    • Taste
      in the mouth a little bit "fuller" than the nose can expect, round, sweet, tasty, malt, caramel, some hazelnut cream and raisins
    • Finish
      Short to medium, milk chocolate, here you notice oak, a bit scratchy, dry

  4. Koalafant scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Not quite convincing in the nose, respectable on the tongue and a real surprise in the end ... very mixed ... (70/100)
    • Nose
      Dry-fruity with subtle honey and vanilla tones, as well as gooseberry and kiwi
    • Taste
      Fairly sweet with a clear but pleasant grain note
    • Finish
      Now again rather dry and surprisingly long; lightly occupies the palate

  5. Archer scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • Nose
      Very shy. It takes a while for the nose to reveal its character. Light, fresh and soft. Milk chocolate, vanilla, malt.
    • Taste
      Creamy like a caramel and slightly oily, but still with a refreshing lightness. The grain content comes through only slightly.
    • Finish
      Rather short. Leaves a sweet malty note.

  7. alex_p scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Decent dram.

    For 18 EUR per liter at duty-free shops it is unbeatable.
    • Nose
      Complex and fagrant nose of honey cake, fried fruit, caramel a bit of sherry and other 
    • Taste
      Not so complex as nose, dynamic and a little sharp
    • Finish
      Short, fruity

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    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
    money.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      The finish is not overly long, but very pleasant with a nice balance
      between the fruit and the toasted oak.

  9. granella2003 scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    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.

  10. drkrylov scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Made up mostly of malt whiskey aged for 11 years in sherry casks before blending.
