The benchmark Irish single malt, this has a far greater depth of flavour than standard Irish blends. A previous winner of the 'Best Irish Single Malt Whiskey in the World' at the World Whiskies Awards.
World Whiskies Awards 2014: Best Irish Single Malt 12yo and Under
Thought I would upgrade to bushmills 10 after having tallymore dew. I was very dissapointment with the bushmills 10. The original is far more flavoursome, to me it's tastes no more great than a abalour 10. But non the less its still worth a try.

I wouldn't call it (Best Irish Single Malt Whiskey in the World.
It got quite nice smell..but bitter after taste just ruined everything!Jameson is much better and good value for money!

A bit too fruity, perhaps it would be better if aged for longer. Bushmills Original is the best.

A good quality Irish single malt and well worth a try. Exceptionally smooth and rounded.

I have tasted your single malt Irish whisky first time I may add, & I find it smooth flavorable, & very enjoyable, & really can't
wait to have another bottle. Quite an experience, love it.

Try the 21 year old bushmills it's pure heaven

First came into contact with this whiskey during the anniversary a few years back. As a single malt Irish... I have no complaints. There was a smoother taste and oakier (its a word, trust me...) than any of the aged Jameson's that I have tried.

A very pleasent taste experience,not too overpowering with a smooth finish.Some so called whiskey drinker friends of mine could not believe how smooth it was!!!And at a realistic price!!!!

Too much wood influence in this one. Not one I'd buy again.

Drank a full bottle on Christmas day and ended up talking to some bushes on my way home in the early hours. Waste of a bottle really which is why i'm about to buy another one. I have a sweet tooth so this bottle is perfect for me.

The ten year old is very good, but you really want to try the 12yearold, unfortunately you can only buy at the distillery. Which is an excellent tour
- John Davison , 1st Jan '12
any vodka drinker want to drink the irish equivalent? go right ahead and buy it light,crisp,fresh,smooth but not a whole lot else other than sweet.

Not a fan of Bushmills, too sweet or my buds
- DavE, 16th Jul '11
I agree with Gregg, this one lacks complexity. Still, there is a nice, smooth fruity palate and lovely nose.
- Mikko, 18th Feb '11
For a single malt I found it okay but not excellent. It has a very nice floral sweet nose much like Glenmorangie but not much complexity on the palate. Good introduction for single malt drinkers at a modest price.
- Gregg, 14th Feb '11
This is an excellent single malt and is the one that I prefer to drink on a regular basis. I have bottles of Original, 16 year old, 1608 and I have had Black Bush but not at the moment. Both 16yr and 1608 are very fine whiskey's with a more complicated flavour, but this comes at a £50 price tag.

Xmas present and superb - nearly all gone down the hatch due to these cold nights. Will seek some more at the weekend.
- Jon M, 13th Jan '11
In all honesty Bushmills is one of the best whiskeys I have ever tasted! having tried all of their range even the 21 years old single malt, this one is an extremely fine Irish whiskey, i think the BOURBON seasoned barrels give it something special.
- bassitio, 1st Dec '10
Pleasant enough, and I agree with the sweetness comments, but for me it seems to be covering for a slightly bitter, ash like aftertaste at the back of the throat. I've had a bottle in the cupboard for a couple of weeks, and I don't relish drinking it - that just doesn't happen with most scottish single malts! Maybe a few more years would do it good.
- Rich, 8th Sep '10
a nice whiskey, yet there's something not there, sweet, with a little bit of malt in there, too sweet for me, lots of sherry notes in there too, if you like it, not close to the distillery 12 year in my opinion
