Bushmills® Black Bush® Irish Whiskey is a blend of aged Irish whiskeys known for its smooth and mellow taste. It's a triple-distilled whiskey matured in a combination of sherry casks, bourbon barrels, and port pipes, resulting in a rich and complex flavor profile with notes of honey, spice, and dried fruit.

Description

Aroma

First Impression: A wave of sweetness greets you first, with honey and vanilla leading the charge. Toasted nuts like almonds and hazelnuts add a pleasant richness.

Deeper Sniffs: As you delve deeper, hints of dried fruits emerge. Think raisins, prunes, and maybe even a touch of fig. Some enthusiasts also detect a subtle sherry influence, adding a hint of dark fruit and a touch of oxidative character (think dried fruits and a slight nuttiness).

Palate

First Sip: The smooth and creamy mouthfeel is a signature of Black Bush. The sweetness from the aroma translates beautifully, with honey and caramel flavors taking center stage.

Midpalate: Toasted nuts like almonds and walnuts become more prominent, adding a layer of savory complexity. Hints of baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg appear, creating a warming sensation without overpowering the sweetness. The influence of the casks becomes more apparent here. Sherry notes might present as raisin or prune flavors, while the bourbon barrels contribute a subtle vanilla or oaky character. Port pipe influence, if present, might add a touch of red fruit or spice.

Finish: The finish is medium-length, leaving a lingering sweetness and a touch of warming spice. Some reviewers mention a hint of oaky dryness, which provides a pleasant balance to the sweetness.
