Bushmills 16 year old Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a bit light for my usual taste but still it managed to leave a nice impression. Thick stuff but light in the taste. Bushmills 16 yrs is distilled 3 times and aged in 3 different kinds of wood casks. First in American bourbon casks, then Oloroso sherry casks and finished in port wine pipes.

Even though light, I'd still call it complex. Nice Irish whiskey and definitely worth a taste. Especially the nose is good. This dram is dark and it has humor in it, again, the nose is very eccentric. That's why Bushmills 16YO is like "Intermission", a good Irish movie with dark humor.

Nose: Vanilla with sherry, sweet red berries and caramel. Hints of honey.

Taste: Nicely oily, tropical fruits and warming spices. Vanilla and sherry.

Finish: Thick with red berries and syrup.

Balance: Good dram with dark complexity in a smooth way.
