I visited the Bushmills Distillery in 2009, and since then I didn't even taste the 10 years classic Bushmills. About the Distillery... I recommend to visit it! Awesome. Especially when you get the chance to have a fire starting while visiting! That was a small fire and no building/people were injured and finally we got an extra drink free! Ok, back to the whiskey. Nose: very nice, delicate, too delicate? Subtle floral note (rose?) and vanilla, a touch of calvados (I said "apple" in the tags). When tasting, there is a small green peppercorn note that comes in mouth and saturate a bit everything, but it disappears soon. Honey, Apple again? The finnish is green peppercorn and then the sweetness comes with a hint of honey.
I like it. It's an easy whiskey, easy to drink, easy to taste. It has the softness of a kiss of Ireland.
There is something they say about the Bushmills whiskey: it makes the best lamb! Because the sheep eats the Barley once it's used for the whiskey. And the Bushmills Barley makes the sheeps happy while the whiskey makes you happy.
