ushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey has an intriguing flavor and a name to match, this is their special blend. It combines a uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso Sherry casks with a sweet, batch-distilled grain whiskey. This unique recipe gives Black Bush its rich fruity notes and deep intense character, balanced by a unique smoothness.
Big, full, rich fruitcake aroma, intense Sherry sweetness developing into dried fruit/raisen/Christmas cake notes. Soft, silky texture with a nutty character. Lingering sweetness. Remarkable balance from Sherry-seasoned casks and the smoothness of the spirit.
|90-95 Points - Paul Pacult, Wine Enthusiast & Spirit Journal: "Possesses a high ratio (80%+) of malt whiskey. Black Bush’s racy bouquet offers aromas of toffee, cotton candy, malt mash and cream highlight. Palate entry is deep, dark caramel-like and stunningly luscious. Simply, one of the greatest whiskeys from Ireland."
