A simple Irish blend.
Nose - Ethanol, fairly harsh. Not something I want to get first thing I nose a drink. Some grainy notes with a very light vanilla.
Palate - Grainy sweetness, some vanilla and spice and that's it.
Finish - Not long. I think I actually preferred Jameson over this (time will tell). But I'll come back to it on another night and re-review it.
All in all, 'Bushmills Black Bush' is the key champion in this range of Irish blends, and packs complexity and price in a great little affordable bundle. As for Tullamore, it's got a long ways to go.
