It’s oily and viscous and coats the mouth very well. The only downside to this bottle is that its youthfulness shines through and it’s overwhelmingly sweet. Would I buy a bottle?

Bottled at 44.3%, The Busker's Single Grain sees maturation in a combination of bourbon barrels and Marsala wine casks. This is one of the entry core expressions from the Irish brand. Let's dive in!
Fruity, with tons of apple and some honey, this single grain release leans hard on the fruit in the nose. White grape, vanilla bean, a touch of salinity. Fresh biscuits.
On the palate, this pour is sweet, enticing, easy to enjoy. Baked apple, cinnamon, honey and more vanilla bean with a sweet, flaky, pastry back-palate note.
Short finish, but it’s easy to enjoy with plenty of character. Pastries, vanilla bean, apple pie.
This single grain release is an unassuming winner for the brand, with plenty going on in a profile that’s sweet and pie-forward left and right.
