Bushmills Black Bush

70 cl

Black Bush is classed as the 'deluxe' blend from Bushmills and it has a lot of loyal fans across the world. Compared to the standard blend this has more depth, richness but also some woody hints. Maybe not as smooth as the Bushmills Original but it packs a lot more flavour. This is vatted from approximately 80% malt whiskey and 20% grain whiskey some of which is aged for as long as 18 years. A very high proportion of ex-sherry casks are used for the maturation giving the whiskey its signature dark colour and some delicious flavours of dried fruits, roasted nuts and caramel toffees. This still ranks as one of the best blended whiskeys in the world!

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose A distinctive, full bodied aroma with spicy, malty and nutty sweet sherry notes.
Palate Big and full to start off with‚ quickly becoming light with a hint of spicy fruit. Floats across your tongue to the back of your throat where it rests as a slight sherry sweetness. Finishes with a lingering‚ smooth sweetness that flourishes into your cheeks.
Colour Deep bronze.
