Description

This is something Teeling offered, but more around the tasting experience at the end which I thought was a great idea. You also have the option to have a message handwritten on the gift tag at no additional cost, perfect when sending your gift directly to someone.

Vividly neon green with a bouquet of aromas incorporating mint, lemon blame, aniseed and of course wormwood, Grande Absente Original is made to a pre-ban absinthe recipe the flavour builds as you enjoy each sip. The high malt mash-bill presents an acceptable level of quality especially if you're used to a Speyside whisky. In the small village of Bushmills settled on the banks of the river you'll find the oldest working distillery in Ireland. The north coast of Ireland pulls in huge crowds of tourists every year and I dare say a lot of them visit Bushmills distillery while visiting this part of the world.Even back in 2016, I felt there was a tannic bitterness making a powerful and unwelcome presence felt in Black Bush and sadly it’s still there and very much to its detriment.

First neck pour left me wondering if it had anymore to offer, but a few drams in (and some resting time in between the daily sampling), I am able to confirm that the whiskey has opened up.

It was a clear Sunday in November 2019; my wife and I went to the distillery for a tour while staying along the North coast of Ireland. Even better is that I had a sample of a 1980’s bottle of Black Bush (although bottled at 43% so probably for the export markets) that I had purchased off Val from the Waterford Whiskey Society. Nose – Big, full, rich fruitcake aroma, intense sherry sweetness developing into dried fruit, raisen, christmas cake notes.

We recommend enjoying the Black Bush 1 l either neat or in a well-polished cocktail glass as Irish Coffee, Manhattan or Brooklyn. Bushmills Black Bush Irish Whiskey combines a high amount of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso Sherry casks, with a sweet, batch-distilled grain whiskey. We’ve selected the best of the best, made by us and our friends, with also a selection of cocktails, wine and barware sold or used by our sister bars Discount Suit Company and The Sun Tavern. In the event of any safety concerns or for any other information about a product please carefully read any instructions provided on the label or packaging and contact the manufacturer.That bottle is 40% ABV, so I don’t have the opportunity to sample and taste something that is cask strength or more appealing really. This smooth blend of malt and grain whiskey provides a lingering sweetness owing to the sherry-seasoned casks in which it is distilled. This black Bush is a very nice budget whiskey, I find it better than standard jameson and better than original bushmills.
