I hate whisky snobs (Sorry if you are one). What's wrong with this - short answer, nothing. It's a fun, complicated, busy whisky for all that it's a dirty Irish blend, bey.

Nose: Honeyed (sherry?) sweetness, i don't get the smoke but I do get some salt? And a spicy tang, possibly ginger?

Mouth: Very sweet, has a fullness in the mouth built entirely upon that sweetness that makes it seem sweeter, and takes that sherry flavour i'm not confident is on the nose and then makes you think of honey again. Something florid about it.

After: Dry to me but with a jet of spice and a suggestion of smoke. Pleasant but not thrilling or particularly long.

I do consider myself a whisky snob. I do think it's better to drink decent quality malt instead of majority of popular and advertised blends. Or drink some other alco drink or beer instead. However, I do like Black Bush very much - no snobbery when we talk about a quality blend. I rated this whiskey quite high. Cheers!
