I've decided to taste Bushmills 10 yo after enjoying magnificent Black Bush. Expectations were high as this is a next step (single malt) after a blended whiskey. So, on to tasting.
Nose: toffee, coffee, milk chocolate, raisins, sherry. Very nice.
Palate: dry malt sweetness, green fruit, pear, coffee, hints of oak. I'd say nose promises a bit more that I got from a taste.
Finish: Not quite long. Not complex. Toffee, caramel, coffee with chocolate.
Adding water does no good. Taste just washes out.
Conclusion: this is no bad whiskey at all. Very aromatic and drinkable. But I was expecting more. Maybe due to Black Bush that I seem to like more.
