  1. Official tasting note

    Black Bush - HIGH SINGLE MALT COMPONENT, MOSTLY MATURED IN SHERRY CASKS

    Black Bush Irish whiskey combines an exceptionally high amount of malt married with a sweet, small-batch grain whiskey, and then matured in former Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks. This unique recipe means Black Bush has rich, fruity notes and a deep intense character, balanced by an incredibly unique smoothness. It’s best enjoyed neat, over ice, or in classic cocktails. The most seasoned of Irish whiskey drinkers know that you can’t beat Black Bush.

    A strong taste of sherry on the nose, a bit of vanilla. It feels better on the nose than it tastes good, although for a blend it is very good.
    • Nose

      Sherry and vanilla are strongly perceptible, chocolate, delicate fragrance
    • Taste
      80 80
      Delicate, very oily flavor
    • Finish
      70 70
      average, no special sensations.

  5. KB201 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Bushmills Black Bush lives from the volume and the dark sherry casks. 75% malt whiskey in this blend speaks for itself.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Mild, sherry, dark fruits.
    • Taste
      81 81
      First sweet in the mouth, then it becomes oily and briefly some fruit appears.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Miller-long to short finish, sherry again, light spiciness, fruit, very pleasant.

  6. MaroFF scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A great blend at a very low price. The best I've ever drunk up to € 25. Sweet, creamy with lots of fruit in the form of raisins and oranges, but also with a delicate peppery, which is the essence of the whole. Long, rich and expressive finish. A great whiskey that can be safely drunk solo. I recommend.

    • Finish

      long, warming, quite sweet, slightly bitter end with a hint of dark chocolate
