  • Intro:

    A recently re-designed entry in the core library of expressions, Bushmills 12yr Single Malt is an affordably priced, widely available single malt from the Irish brand. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet and grain forward, plenty of pear, apple, honey and a faint touch of anise. There's some bitter, acidic notes on the nose which is interesting and not entirely expected. Faintly lactic.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate. Sweet grain, honey, baked biscuits and a touch of fresh bread. A bit more ethanol than I'd expect here, as well as a faint touch of smoke and bitter grain on the back palate.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, a touch hot, lightly bitter with a sour finish.

  • Overall:

    There are many great Bushmills out there, but this isn't one of them. I'd recommend a different entry instead.
