Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey
Bushmills Black Bush is predominately single malt whiskey matured in Oloroso sherry casks and blended to perfection with just enough single grain whiskey to lighten and sweeten it. The aromas are soft sweet bread with nuts and a tart made with raisins, apples, honey with delicate spices and hints of vanilla. The light delicate palate is full with almond oil, apple, pear, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg, providing a warmth that is vibrant and freshening while also revealing minerals. These flavors linger, showing each sweet component against an herbaceous back note that resolves into a full, harmonious sapidity that is a pleasure to sip neat, or with a touch of water or an ice cube.
