FINISH - Crisp‚ fresh finish‚ with a touch of spice
Beverage Testing Institute 90 points - (Tried & True Award)- Toasted oats, honey roasted walnuts, coconut flesh, and golden plum dominate the nose. Smooth and round mouthfeel, with fruit coming forward backed by minerals and honey. A sweet but balanced finish ensues.
Early-stage sniffings find delicate aromas of green vegetables, carnations and grain mash; further air contact brings up slightly sour notes of damp soil, glue and marshmallow. Exceedingly pleasant, grainy sweet and genial on the palate. Finishes cleanly.
Golden amber color. Wet clay, grain husk, and cocoa aromas with a soft, spry, dryish light-to-medium body and a delicate pencil shaving, cream, hay and pepper accented finish. An excellent everyday tipple.
|Wine maker notes
|“Bushmills‚ the golden member of the family. It’s a blend of triple distilled single malt whiskey with a lighter irish grain whiskey. The folks back at the old distillery will tell you it’s an approachable whiskey with a rich‚ warming taste of fresh fruit and vanilla. Me? Well - to me it has a fruity burst that sits on my tongue before turning to honey in my cheeks. Try it and you’ll see what I mean.”
