I wanted to try a good quality Irish whisky, since I'd only tired the standard Jameson, as well as Bushmills (black, and original). I was really pleased with the black Bushmills - that was a yummy whisky.
NOSE: caramel, toffee, sherry, pastry, vanilla, dark fruits, a touch of floral. With time you get some aged rum notes as well. Not bad at all. 20/25
TASTE: a hint of toffee, milk chocolate with a hint of cappuccino, caramel syrup. The milky mouthfeel is something that I don't really like about this whisky. It even reminds a little bit of soy milk which is the nastiest thing I know. Dried fruits, a hint of mint and black pepper. 21/25
FINISH: milky, milk chocolate, a little bit oily. 20/25
OVERALL IMPRESSION: I don't really understand why people like it so much. It's a nice whisky, but it's definitely not a sipper that will keep you busy all day.
