I generally prefer single malts over blends, but there are a few exceptions - some of Jameson's finest and this particular Bushmills, the Black Bush.

Its flavour is remarkably distinctive for a blend, you'll never have difficulty picking a Black Bush out in a blind test. It starts strong with heavy notes of pepper, then mellows into classic Irish triple-distilled smoothness.

Bushmills make some fine single malts, but this blend remains my favourite of Ireland's oldest licensed distillery.

I wholehartedly agree, sir! And since you like this one, being a blend, may I suggest you check out the 1608 as well? That's a blend too, and a mighty one at that!

Aye, got a bottle of 1608 waiting for a special occasion to be opened. :) Had a taste of it at the Bushmills distillery, lovely stuff indeed.

Picked up a bottle of this bad boy tonight, what a smooth finish. Very satisfying.
