A rich, dark, Irish blend, Black Bush contains a high proportion of triple-distilled single malt, aged in Oloroso sherry casks for around 8-10 years before marriage with the grain. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Gavin Smith

    Nose: Baked apples and spicy malt. A pleasingly mature character to it.

    Palate: Big bodied, slightly oily, with nutmeg and red wine. Sophisticated and assured.

    Finish: Notably long, drying with dark syrup and liquorice notes.

    Comment: A confident whiskey that feels as though it has some age to it.


  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    Nose: Rich and ripe, with some dark (cooked) black fruit. Raisin, cocoa, praline, coconut. Substantial smooth succulence.

    Palate: Sweet start then it firms up in the centre where the nuts return melting into the chocolate and raisin. Chewy and tongue coating. Showing some complexity.

    Finish: Long, sweet.

    Comment: Beautifully balanced.

    Over the past 10 months I''ve put back 2 cases, I like it that much. I like this better than the 3 wood, it has such a nice finish holding on with a raisin and chocolate end. Straight is the only way to drink this, in a small snifter to enjoy its wonderful nose.

    Excellent - though I think I am in the minority of drinkers who prefer good old Bushmills Original still. Black Bush has an amazing nose - I detected fruitcake, vanilla, toasted nuts, and coconut. Smooth as hell. Tastes like how I remember feeling watching "A Child''s Christmas in Wales" growing up. Lovely.

    One of the best everyday drinks around, best drunk neat. I can't describe it in terms of taste like others.can. Only tell you it is really nice. If you don't like whiskey try this!

    Very nice aroma of peat on the Black Bush version. First tried it way back in 1965 with a pulled pint of Guiness in Northern Ireland. Never looked back. My daughter recently treated me to a (purple) bottle of the 15 year old one. Lovely Jubbly. Agree with comments about mixing - don't.

    Beautiful whiskey and a fair price. Much smoother than jamesons. Great on a winters night.

    Always look forward to a bottle of blackbush, prefer it to the millenium and 10yr. sacrilege to mix it with anything,

    Certain whiskies (of any kind) leave an impression, and this is one of them. I tried it once over a year ago and I've been meaning to buy a bottle ever since.

    One of the best blends. A 60th birthday gift. Commands the attention I'd usually give a malt. A clean nose which reminds me Of a Speysider! Subtler than previous bottlings. Less toffee, more fruit and licorice and better for it, both on nose and palate. Slight smoke on nose. Sweet spice and licorice on palate. Yellow fruits on finish. Lovely.

    Wow! So easy to drink you won't even think about water or ice. Maybe a bit on the sweet side for some people but I'll be having a lot more Black Bush in the future. If you enjoy a speyside like Macallan or Glenlivet then you'll love this. This is the whisky that Naked Grouse aspires to.
