My 2nd Irish whiskey – Bushmills 10yr Single Malt

bushmills-malt-10-yearBushmills 10yr Single Malt is excellent.

The Best Irish Single Malt Whiskey at the 2007 World Whiskies Awards. Bushmills are always scored highly in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, with the 10 year old being awarded 92.5 points in 2013!  (grading on a curve?)

The Master of Malt says….. the Nose is banana skins, the Palate is medium very fruity chocolate pudding, the Finish is floral tannic, and the Overall is just like nectarine chunks in low fat yoghurt!

  • Good grief!  Who writes like that?  Is the Master of Malt drunk when he writes this stuff?  Did he stick various fruits up his nose until he arrived at banana and said Yes, that’s it!

The Whisky Exchange says…  “The benchmark Irish single malt, this has a far greater depth of flavour than standard Irish blends.”  So far, after just two Irish whiskey purchases, I would agree.

When I was looking for a new Irish whiskey at the NBLC store on York St., Fredericton, what caught my eye was the label that said… “Matured in bourbon and oloroso sherry casks for a minimum of 10 years.”  As a fan of single malt Scotch aged in sherry casks, I had to give Bushmills 10yr Single Malt a try.  No regrets.

Price at NBLCC = $39.99 CDN.
