- What a great
Bushmills! Pity that it has become so expensive nowadays or I might have been
tempted to get me a bottle of this good stuff. Thanks a bunch, James!
The nose is subtle on
vanilla and honey, with an underlying layer of light citrus and nuts. Nougat. Also
some dried apricots and sweet malt. Peaches, maybe? Almond shavings.
Soft and sweet attack
with a very mild spiciness. Well, maybe not so mild. Becomes quite punchy after
a few moments with a nice trace of oak that gives it a depth that you would not
have anticipated after the soft nose. Caramel and dried fruit. Nice!
The creamy finish is
surprisingly long on allspice.
