This is my 4th Bushmills expression.I kinda liked their younger whiskeys and was interested to try older brother. Yes, it is Bushmills) very typical taste profile.

Nose is interesting with notes of sherry, vanilla, fresh cut grass, green apple, hazelnut. On the palate there are sherry, oak, spices, apple, vanilla, jam made of rose pellets. Finish is medium long, I get some bourbon, plum jam, cocoa and cream.

There is one more note running across Nose-taste-finish which I'm having hard times to identify. Something like a sour wet oak(?). As I never noticed something like that in other Bushmills expressions I guess it's ex-port cask that caused it. This I didn't like, so took some points off for it.

Nice review Max. Maybe it is this 'sour wet oak' that I like on this dram. There is definitely something special, especially on the finish, which I like a lot. I also guess it's the port cask.
