Not a bad whisky at all, considering that my colleague Heiko and I drank a whole bottle (he 25%, me the rest) to celebrate an event going well. The next day, however, neither of us had a headache. I'm sure that counts for something?

Anyway, the sherry this time around makes a much better impression that, say, two years back. Quite fruity and full. A touch of port in the finish. Very subtle nose, in my opinion. Very good dram for - no offense - beginners.

And may I add that I consider myself to be a beginner as well. I've only been tasting whiskies for about 5 years now, on and off. Should this reflect in my reviews, please do not hold it against me.

(one of the things I've already noticed is that I dare rate my personal fav's rather high)

Agree, Bushmills is a great place to start as an intro to single malts. It's the route I took myself! I lived in Northern Ireland reasonably close to the distillery and visited there quite often.

A very easy drinking single malt - but with plenty of character, which makes it such a good stepping stone for someone moving from blends to single malts.

The only Bushmills I didn't care for - too oily. The 16 is way better for not much more money, and the Black, though blended, beats it roundly.
