This is my favourite whiskey, I tried Midleton Barry Crockett and although it's nice, for me at least, the 16 year old Bushmills is still number 1.
An amazingly good product, so smooth and so full of flavour, dangerously easy to drink straight. We'll done Bushmills!

The 16 is the only one of the lot to have the strongest Georgia Peach note to me, the whitebush and blackbush have a wee bit but not as much, lots of vanilla, grassy a wee bit, lemon, honey. Love it. The 1608 is more raisiny, fruity (dried fruits especially), black tea, more eclectic and suitable for colder months. They are both in my top 10.

Enjoyed our first bottle recently on a fishing trip to France, no fish but a wonderful full bodied flavour with out fault.So smooth and more ish .

Gorgeous. So smooth and delicious. 10yr old has more earthy notes but that doesn't mean fuller flavour. This one has a subtlety and richness that just isn't there in the 10yr old (which is pretty fantastic, as well). Dangerously good whiskey.

I would say that 10 y.o. taste better..This one hide his depth, It feels like can't show the full character

Wonderful,wonderful whiskey! I bought a bottle as a birthday gift for my father when he turned 50, and it has much more to offer than my own Bushmills 10. 6 more years and an extra cask really makes a difference :)

I have over 30 quality simgle malts at home, This one is my favorate by miles, so smooth. Try it next time you get chance.

One of the most flavorful whiskies I've ever tasted as well. Love the orchard fruit aroma and massive plum finish. There is such parity of high-level quality amongst Irish Whiskey these days, but even so Bushmills 16 is unique.

I work for the Bushmills Inn. We own our very own cask of 25 year old malt but depending on taste, either 16 y.o or 21 is the best. Also we are the only place in the world that is licensed to sell 12 y.o crytsl malt.

Bushmills black Bush is just as good but it is still a nice whisky

Much prefer the 10 year old. Not sure if the 16 justifies the extra £20.
