About this deal

You also have the option to have a message handwritten on the gift tag at no additional cost, perfect when sending your gift directly to someone. A rich, dark, Irish blend, Black Bush contains a high proportion of triple-distilled single malt, aged in Oloroso sherry casks for around 8-10 years before marriage with the grain. Bushmills BLACK BUSH Irish Whiskey combines an exceptionally high amount of malt whiskey married with a lighter grain whiskey, and then matured in former Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon casks. The flavour is smooth and sweet on the palate with the woody and vanilla notes coming together strongly and a hint of sweet honey coming in. While we entered the fermentation room, the tour guide informed us that the long fermentation time of Bushmills is what gives it the unique fruity characteristic that’s found in all expressions.

Black Bush Irish whiskey combines an exceptionally high amount of malt married with a sweet, small-batch grain whiskey, and then matured in former Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks. It’s the smell of a particular whiskey that brings back a memorable moment to me that I feel it’s worth sharing. But I have felt that over recent years quality has been slipping and so I felt it time to revisit and share my opinion. This is something Teeling offered, but more around the tasting experience at the end which I thought was a great idea. Enjoyed by absinthe connoisseurs and dedicated spirits advocates around the world in the traditional way with sugar and water.You had two small racks of casks that created a small walkway, and in the middle of the walkway, on the floor, displayed 3 old barrels (one that contained bourbon, one for sherry and an old port pipe). More dark fruit notes than fresh fruit – sweet dates, fig rolls, California raisins, muscovado sugar, sawn oak and leather. At The Umbrella Project we’ve always championed local and independent producers, as well as the most traditional and influential products for bar and home use. This unique recipe gives Black Bush its rich fruity notes and deep intense character, balanced by a unique smoothness. With sweet brandy undertones mixed with the pomace of the grapes, Tosolini Cividana Grappa has a mellow flavour which marries wonderfully with aromatic notes and the sweetness of grapes throughout.

A memorable whisky moment for me was when the tour group entered one of their many, many cask warehouses.Originally hailing from Ireland and enjoying the available Irish whiskeys, Hamish was drawn into the world of Scotch malt and further afield while he fell into the flavour chase rabbit-hole. This reminded me of a previous visit I’d had at the Bushmills distillery, where my olfactory senses were incredibly overwhelmed in a way I’d never imagined. I'm certainly not an expert, but it is by far my favourite Irish, closely followed by Copeland Merchants Quay and Slane all of which are blends and all of which are aged, at some point, in sherry(Oloroso) casks.

Our boxes are made of 100% recyclable cardboard and our protective honeycomb paper wrap keeps your package safe and significantly reduces our need for plastic. Old Bushmills has the amazing ability to be all things to all men: a thoroughly modern distillery housed in a beautiful Victorian building; a boutique distillery that nevertheless produces global brands; and a working distillery that welcomes the public. The BB in 1 ltr can be had for little money and when you stack it up against other blends, you appreciate what good value it is.Even better is that I had a sample of a 1980’s bottle of Black Bush (although bottled at 43% so probably for the export markets) that I had purchased off Val from the Waterford Whiskey Society. Young and sprightly, Patron Silver is the youngest of their tequilas and its flavour reflects its youth. From the house of Bushmills from Great Britain pours with this Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey a tasty whiskey - whiskey in the sparkling glass and immediately bewitches the eye of inclined spirits lovers*innen with expressive golden yellow color.
