  1. dicembre29 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Playdough. Chewy sugar cookies. Deep grape notes. Orange peelings. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Dust. Like a glass of fruit juice. Mulled cider and maybe a little Amaretto. At once clean and…not. In a good way.

    Palate: Black current. A hint of smoke. Big purple grape. Five Alive (for the spectacularly rich fruit mix). Some mouth-puckering tannins.

    Smooth…until the slightly bitter finsh. Slightly contrived, but exceptionally enticing and enjoyable. Love this one.

  3. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "Bushmills Malt 16 Year Old is aged for 16 years in a combination of American oak casks (typically lending vanilla notes to the whiskey) and Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks (contributing rich fruit and nuts). It is then finished in old port casks for several months. These bring sweet berry notes and a hint of ruby redness to the final whiskey." - Distillery
