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.

there are a lot of people that actually think that Black Bush delivers more than the 10 yo...and I am one of them...

I'm starting to think that one should evaluate whisky after a bottle is finished, and not after first-second sip. As the bottle was going to it's end I liked B10 more and more. I would give it solid 84 now.
