Tasting notes
Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Beautifully scented with honey, sweet apples, pears, bananas and sherry.
Palate: Delicious, malt roundedness, rich fruit and nuttiness peep through the sherry and port structure.
Finish: Lingering sweet fruit salad character and the lightest trace of peat.
Comment: Absolutely charming Bushmills. Expertly composed.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Distinctly nutty, but also with those linseedy Irish flavours. some soft, perfumy, spiciness.
Palate: Toasted almonds, raisin, slightly burnt toffee.
Finish: Delicate, elusive, flavours. Long, soft, soothing.
Comment: All the woods are influential, especially the port in the finish. A dextrous balancing act.
