Black Bush

BUSHMILLS
BLACK BUSH

Unrivalled character. Undeniable Flavour. Unmistakably Black Bush.

Our special premium blend combines a uniquely high amount of single malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso sherry casks, blended with a sweet, batch-distilled grain whiskey.

The result is a dark and curious spirit, offering rich, full, fruity notes with an intense sherry sweetness. This is balanced by the spirit’s soft, silky texture and velvety smooth, nutty character.

This is what great whiskey tastes like.

NOSE
Big, full, rich fruitcake aroma. Intense sherry sweetness, dried fruit and raisin notes.

TASTE
Soft, silky texture with a nutty character.

FINISH
Lingering sweetness, remarkable balance between the power from the sherry casks and the smoothness of the spirit.
