Found this one on sale, was mildly curious about it. The label doesn't make clear what differentiates it from regular Bushmills Original, other than aging in bourbon casks. Yipee. As if every distiller on the planet doesn't already do this. But the website specifies first-fill bourbon casks, which is somewhat of a different story.
Anyway, on the nose it is very mild, a bit sweet. Initially I got a good whiff of red berries, which might have explained the curious name, but it is less obvious now. The palate is ultra-light, smooth, with malty sweetness leading into tingling grain alcohol and oaky dryness. The finish is short to the point of non-existence.
Overall this is definitely a mixer. Just not enough there to warrant sipping. The initial surge of malt flavour isn't bad but pales in comparison to the similarly-priced Tullamore Dew I had earlier today. I'm not exactly disappointed with this, but there's still not much to recommend here.
