  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    21 Irish sweetness!
    damage of the finish, otherwise the note would be much better!
    • Nose
      very fruity on Madeira, red fruits, white fruits (apple, pear) cooked and raisins
      woody as intense
      some vanilla and sweet caramel, some chocolate
      great sweetness and very nice
    • Taste
      fruit still on the fruit cooked, macerated and maderized, but fresh and fruits also on red fruits
      Sweet, sweet spices, a little on sweets!
      still soft wood
      an incredible sweetness that leaves on the other hand, can be due to the low alcoholic degree?
    • Finish
      sweet scent
      creamy
      soft woody
      but scents that do not hold much!

    Funny, so for me it was almost only flavor and wood to taste, I can not imagine that it should be like this (batch or sample?). Interesting, but whiskey that was in the barrel for too long is also cheaper.
    • Nose
      The first impression is either spicy or artificial, so it goes in the direction of lovage (Maggi). Then great smell of wood.
    • Taste
      Amazingly bitter for an Irishman. Comes over fuller than the 40%, nice. The taste of vanilla is there. Quite interesting, I would have imagined more fruity
    • Finish
      The finish is also quite woody and long-lasting.

    • Nose
      Soft, delicate, very pleasant. Vanilla notes, fruit candies, red apple, sweet pastries, freshly sawn board, malt motifs, marinade, plum candy. 23
    • Taste
      Light-bodied, moderately sweet, watery. Water with sugar, a soaked apple, passion fruit, herbal bitterness, fruit lollipops, red apple, a bit of wood tannins, mineral water, malt and beer motifs. 21
    • Finish
      Short, simple, there is alcoholic bitterness and a little menthol. 19
      Uncomplicated, but very soft and soft whiskey - you can quietly drink a lot. Balance 21

  5. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Slightly maderised nose, mint, cereals and prune, all well wooded, with a hint of lemon and sherry. A very frank mouth, with cereals, grain, it is very "pot still", but quite subtle, the final is nice.

    The Bushmills is very fruity. Rather yellow fruit. With his 40% he is unfortunately a bit weak on the chest. Again, the not so beautiful note for me that I somehow always Irish, represented. I call it an artificial fruitiness and sweetness.

    He does not hurt and is good drinkable. However, I do not need a bottle of it.

    Irish whiskeys and I will probably no longer be friends. I have so far, as I said, always this artificial fruitiness and sweetness disturbed. At Bushmills, this is relatively strong.
