    dusty, honey, light, green apple, some off note at finish, remind me glenmorangie 10 but that better whiskey and more malty as well.

    Bushmills 10YO

    Category: Single Malt
    Manufacturer and bottler: Bushmills Distillery
    Region: Ireland
    Fortress: 40%
    Volume: 700 ml
    Bottling date: 05/16/2018
    Barrel type: bourbon seasoned and ex-oloroso sherry
    Age: 10
    Filtration: present
    Dye: yes

    Nose. For 10 years of aging, this Bushmills has a very pleasant and harmonious aroma, although at first a little paint and acetone comes to the fore. From bourbon barrels, the nose got tones of honey, vanilla, creme brulee, ginger, dried bananas, sweet and sour citrus fruits and yeast dough (something similar to lemon pie), herbal notes (mint, thyme), while sherry barrels enrich the nose with aromas of baked apples , peaches and pears, nuts, milk chocolate. The nose, though simple, lightweight, but well-assembled, there is nothing repulsive.

    Taste. A very fluid body, the whiskey is clearly lacking in body, oiliness and texture. But on the other hand, it stands out from its competitors by its extreme ease of drinking. To taste, it is vanilla-creamy sweet-sour honey-citrus nectar with interspersed overripe apples and pears and a slight ginger nut bitterness.

    Aftertaste. Medium duration. Creamy caramel, ginger ale, citrus zest, mint freshness.

    Outcome. A good easy-drinking option for an unobtrusive pastime and a good entry-level malt for newcomers to the world of malt whiskey. I don’t really have anything to scold him for, there are no special depths here, just a pleasant drink, if for an adequate price tag, then why not.

    Rating: 81 out of 100.

    • Nose

      Very fresh and refreshing. Sweet. Fruit mass. Peaches, apricots, definitely tropical fruits. Bananas. Pleasant, well hidden alcohol. On the second time, a ripe red apple comes out.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Sweet, caramel. A lot of fruits. More tropical fruit, but I think a bit of oak bitterness also comes out. Later, even notes of fresher fruit appear.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Sweet, caramel. Even more so, burnt caramel. Maybe some sweet young wood. Somewhere in the background some fresh fruit. Tropical fruits reappear. And fresh fruit again. Then again some sweet and bitter aromas of fresh wood. Average finish length.

    - good Irish standard single malt
    - simple and straightforward, always works!
    - for about 25 € an average single malt

      Sherry, sweetness, mild and malty
    • Taste
      Irish mild style, soft start, malty note, in the mouth a stronger alcohol development follows
    • Finish
      short, very quick finish;
      medium-long, malty, somewhat sharp aftertaste

  16. Svarttt scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    After a long time in the offer again. Nice, pleasant, a bit of malt, fruit, vanilla, doesn't hurt anyone.
    Good to drink with friends who don't really like whiskey.
    It's too thin for the kinky palate.

    • Nose
      85 85
      Bourbon immediately takes the lead. Notes of vanilla and bananas are clear to be discovered. A lovely hint of honey is very clear present. There are also notes of grains and oak.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Again the vanilla and bananas take the lead. A note of overripened pears. Lovely chocolate pudding aswell and it ends with a note of oak.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A bit short but very pleasant. For the time being there are notes of crispy honey and oak.

  22. peatbogger scored this whisky 82 points Specialist

    Pretty solid for a 40% yet going down dangerously easy.
    Not one to be mesmerized by, but tasty enough for an enjoyable evening sipper.
    I find this a lot better than for instance the Green Spot.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Refreshingly fruity with a tinge of sour citrus.
      Green banana, lots of it.
      Peach and pear.
      Soft wood notes in the background.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Sweeter than it smells, but still well in tune with the nose.
      Again lots of yellow fruit.
      Citrus not as noticeable, and bananas has ripened a little.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium length. Slightly drying wood with an almost mouthwash mintyness.

  25. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 81 points Super Administrator

    On the banks of the River Bush, there used to be a watermill, hence the name 'Bushmills'. Licensed in 1608, it's one of the oldest distilleries in the world. Light and engaging, the nose of this triple distilled Single Malt combines sour peach, orange peel and mild spices with delicate notes of chive and thyme. Remarkably solid for 40% ABV, the palate is fruity, malty sweet and well-balanced. Banana, pears and a touch of menthol are rounded off by pleasant hints of oak. Lime, fresh mint and some bitter tannins mark the short finish. The Irish Glenfiddich?

  27. schengel10 scored this whisky 66 points Connoisseur

    A simple, Irish single malt whiskey, comparable to 10 year old Scots!
    In the offer for about 22,00 € = top!
    • Nose
      sweet, very fruity (pears, peach?), malty, sour, mild, light oak;
    • Taste
      soft, gentle onset, sweet, a lot of malt, fruity (pear), beautiful vanilla note;

    3 times distilled & typically Irish ... well done, but unfortunately not mine ...
    • Nose
      Malt, soft fruit, a hint of pumpkin, neatly polished oak. Unripe green fruits with water, malt, dusty stairs, some chocolate.
    • Taste
      Banana, malt, minimal wood notes, small fruity sweetness. Overall, very soft and mild. By adding some water a clear indication of bananas & malt. A piece of milk chocolate. Maybe the taste buds will play a joke on me, but I mean, hinted at canned corn.
    • Finish
      Here too malt, with some pepper. A light fruity sweetness mixes with slight dryness. By water only the shell remains of the banana, otherwise everything with the old ... dusty fruitiness, some malt.

    N- Rich on honey. Juicy citrus fruits, mandarin orange and sour plum. New wood shaving. P- Same as on the nose, delicious honey and green apple. White pepper,
    with scent of new book, lack depth, easy and pleasing. A simple malt.

    F- Short, gentle. Green apple and peppery remains.

  42. ScottFrench scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    I'm disappointed. I was expecting much more from this first whiskey "aged" Bushmills range. I find it below the first two entry-level, the original and the black bush. A real disappointment.
    • Nose
      lightweight. Bushmills offers us here a rather pastry profile: egg cream, vanilla sugar, almond, cinnamon and some white-fleshed fruits such as apple and pear. Always this small fresh note of mint, rather pleasant and then, vegetable notes (cereals and turf).
    • Taste
      it's hollow. We smell some fruits like apple and apricot, some spices (cinnamon, pepper), almonds and then, unfortunately, bigger things. Honey spikes, wood. It's pretty dry. I was expecting a rounder profile ...
    • Finish
      rather short and dry with some notes of honey and white fruits. Disappointing.

    At Bushmills, I particularly like packaging and bottle design, the 10-year-old is generally a bit weak, but a delicious fruit cocktail
    • Nose
      lovely, peach, honey, slightly alcoholic, some rose water
    • Taste
      reserved and tasty, fruity after a while
    • Finish
      rather weak but medium in length, it unfolds the typical Bushmills fruit taste

    It is drunk alone, it's not aggressive at all, but it's not at all fantasy either. After that is 20 € too, everything is relative! To spoil the taste buds of friends discovering the whiskey here.
    • Nose
      Varnish and fruity. Looks very friendly without being refined for a penny. There is cereal in the background, and fruit side, apple and pear. This is the minimum service here. We feel that it is young, and emerges little by little a bad note of pudding, a kind of pre-digested porridge of cereals.
    • Taste
      Very watery, with lots of almonds and cereals ..... Then come cereals, chained with other cereals! No, come on, an apple chouïa, history of, and by working his imagination imagine a skinny apricot peel and some herbs of Provence.
