Bushmills 10 year old is a benchmark Irish Single Malt Whiskey worthy of the name.

Bushmills is one of the most popular and enduring Irish Whiskeys. Hugh Anderson registered the company in 1784 in the town of Bushmills and, after a few fits and starts, they have been in continuous operation and growing since 1885. Jose Cuervo purchased the Old Bushmills Distillery from Diageo in 2014, but the suits know to stay out of the way of Irishman crafting their Whiskey. Bushmills currently has six Whiskeys in their core line-up in addition to special editions and releases.

Bushmills Irish Whiskey 10 Year Old has been called a "benchmark Irish Whiskey." It’s the one other Irish Whiskeys compare themselves against. It’s been awarded "Best Irish Single Malt" and has been given 92.5 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible — along with a bushel of gold medals from competitions all over the world. And on top of it all, it is an incredible value given it’s price point. It’s triple distilled and aged a full decade in ex-Bourbon casks — which accounts for the rich flavors of honey, vanilla, and milk chocolate.

Smartass Corner:
Prominently pressed into the glass of each bottle of Bushmills Irish Whiskey is the date "1608." But, that’s not really when they started making Whiskey. The original land-owner — a Sir Thomas Phillips — received an official "license" from King James I to distill in 1608, but the Bushmills distillery was not built until 1784.

Irish Whiskey has many varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ (or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known). Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.

Very mild flavor profile. No harsh burning but smooth.
 
Justin
Justin,
I would characterize this as the Johnnie Walker of Irish whiskey. Good standard Irish whiskey. Similar flavor profile as the standard Bushmills but smoother.
 
Bill

Very smooth and drinkable. Fruit notes right up front followed by warm, comforting chocolate and a somewhat spicy finish.

Pretty good whiskey

Smooth, smoky butterscotch. Easy sipping.
 
Nate
Nate,
Beautiful in the nose. Very drinkable. Im just getting started here, but seems like a good baseline for irish whiskey and something to keep in the liquor cabinet
 
Matt
Matt,
Very Very Good!
 
patrick
patrick,
I have long thought that Irish whiskey was just for getting drunk. I had hoped a ten-year whiskey might change my mind, but it didn’t
 
David
David,
Smooth
 
Becky
Becky,
Sweet and delicate aroma of fruit. A real rich and creamy mouthfeel with notes of chocolate cover banana. Clean and subtle finish.
 
Bryce
Bryce,
Had a very smooth after taste and subtle sweetness to it, best beat but could drink it on ice also.
 
Erik
Erik,
Not horrible but not great. Maybe needs some time in the decanter.
 
John
John,
It’s good not amazing but pretty good. It’s an easy drink great for folks just getting into whiskey
 
Aaron
Aaron,
It's fine - Bushmills is fine - nothing special - only got it as it was delivered as the new "gift" when you bring on a new subscriber - certainly nothing I would buy on my own.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Smooth and sophisticated. The vanilla notes were excellent and had a pleasant nose and throat feel.
 
Marco
Marco,
Enjoyable and smooth. For an easy and pleasurable drink.
 
Michael
Michael,
I’m generally not a big Irish Whiskey fan. With that said, this bottle was excellent and very drinkable. Others may disagree, but for me it falls somewhere between scotch and bourbon. No bite, a bit of hug, and not much heat. Perfect neat. This bottle has earned a prominent spot on my bar.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very enjoyable. Quite smooth. Nice lingering flavor. I’m a neophyte but starting to reall taste differences. Slightly different profiles depending on what I had for dinner.
 
Rudy
Rudy,
Not too big on Irish Whiskey, but this is delicious! It's sweet, with a caramel nose and a sweet honey suckle to the palate and a nice candied dried fruit to finish!! Great whiskey!
 
Travis
Travis,
great find Definitely recommend
 
Brian
Brian,
Great with a cigar
 
Gregg
Gregg,
Trying to get more into Irish whiskey and see there are many more types these days. Bushmills was decent but I found it to be a bit thin flavor wise, I like something with richer more robust tones and complexion. Certainly not terrible but not at the top of the list
 
Roger
Roger,
Unexpected smoothness and nose from an Irish whisky. Pleasantly pleased. Overall flavor very good. Would highly recommend.
 
Michael
Michael,
Excellent flavour and nose. Warm and gentle on the palate with a pleasant wsrm afterglow. Do not add water or ice (ugh!) this whiskey is best taken neat in a nice crystal balloon glass to really savour it.
 
Josh
Josh,
6/10, Feb 2021: I'm not at Irish whisky fan. I much prefer Scotch and Bourbon. As far as flavors go, I can definitely get the honey, slight bit of milk chocolate, and barely any milk, but the end has a floral touch which is supposed to be lavender. Not sure I can concur that it's lavender per se, but it definitely is a slight wave of floral *something*. I wouldn't put this on my personal list to buy because I prefer more depth, complexity, range, and overall flavor. I'd buy everything from Compass Box first.
 
Michael
Michael,
I liked it. I am not a big Irish Whiskey drinker; however, good flavor and nicely smooth...
 
Chaz
Chaz,
Quintessential Irish Whiskey. Incredibly smooth and rich - highly recommend!

Good
 
Ryan
Ryan,
When I think 'Irish Whiskey' this is the flavor that comes to mind. Really solid for sipping and mixing- a favorite for hot toddies in the cold winter.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Solid Irish Whiskey. Smooth without a lot of bite.
 
Briana
Briana,
Amazing
 
James
James,
Although this whiskey was incredibly easy to taste, it was bland, with a fairly weak after. - Not something I was very impressed with. On the nose almost no smell.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
A little to bland for my taste.
 
MATT
MATT,
Smells like apples, very smooth and easy Irish whiskey...
 
Bill
Bill,
A little rough, try older
 
Joshua
Joshua,
I enjoyed it - I got a lot of the sweet at the front, but not a big fan of the tannic ending. For the price, it's great.
 
Jo
Jo,
A classic
 
guest
guest,
My personal favorite Irish . Smooth with just enough “ hit” to know it’s an Irish without overpowering. Neat or on ice are both good .
 
Craig
Craig,
Outstanding whiskey! Smoothest I’ve ever tried. I usually take a bit of water in my whiskey but this is perfect neat.
 
Xavier
Xavier,
For me, it's a classic Irish Whisky. Good aroma, smooth, sweet flavor ...
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Overall great Irish whiskey!

Great aroma
 
Michael

Andrew

The nose on this is amazing. What a wonderful sip.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
The nose on this is just amazing. Wonderful sip
 
Matt
Matt,
Really good single malt Irish whiskey. Heavy banana, vanilla and honey on the nose. Honey with some spice (maybe cinnamon) on the palate and a little spicy with some chocolate notes on the finish.
 
Michael
Michael,
A delicious, easy to drink whiskey, like all the products of this fine distillery. It's full of flavour and smoothly warming on the palate, and the nose has rich fruit notes, with just a hint of honey. These flavours are happily repeated in the mouth where they linger pleasantly.
 
Donald
Donald,
I thought it was excellent scotch. The tasting box I haven’t tried yet because I want to do a tasting with someone.
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Very smooth and easy drinking
 
Logan
Logan,
I love the banana walnut bread on the palate and it is slightly oily on the finish. If you're looking for a single malt irish whiskey that won't break the bank I would highly reccomend.
 
Huat
Huat,
Very mild on the nose and palate, although was able to pick up some honey and vanilla note. Also, the finish is really short
 
Nick
Nick,
Sweet and smooth not harsh.
 
Greg
Greg,
Might be my least favorite whiskey I've ever tasted!!!! The nose was straight-up banana peels soaked in Ouzo. It was absolute dribble to say the least. I should've picked anything else as my quarterly bottle but I liked some Irish whiskies that's why I gave this a chance. This will be under the kitchen sink for mixing drinks. Trash
 
Michael
Michael,
For the money this a ree-dic-u-lus-lee good Irish Single Malt! Warm honey notes and rich flavors hinting of Vanilla, Honey, & Roasted Nuts.... A real "go to" for whisky lovers looking to drink like a king on a modest man's budget!
 
James
James,
Nothing overly exciting or wonderful. Very easy to drink, no off putting notes, just pretty boring.
 
Russ
Russ,
Very good. Can taste all the notes in the finish.
 
Jerry
Jerry,
Was very strong and potent, not tasty at all
 
Paul
Paul,
Super smooth, fruity on the palate, sweetish, with a short finish with gentle vanilla, and malty, woody notes and a hint of salted caramel. An excellent whiskey.
 
Jakub
Jakub,
An Irish king of whiskey, enough said
 
Chris
Chris,
Absolute chocolate notes with a strong finish of light honey, easy on the nose. 8/10
 
James
James,
Very Good whiskey!!!
 
Kenny
Kenny,
This is delicious and so easy to drink. Agree with another review that it’s a bit thin but I find it quite pleasant and perfectly enjoyable neat on any evening. I’ll buy again.
 
Ray
Ray,
Gentle nose, sharp pallet, warm finish. It's a little thin for my preference.
 
Robert
Robert,
It’s a excellent whiskey a bit stronger then Jameson but a full flavor
 
Russell
Russell,
smooth nice flavor, worth further tasting
 
Tina
Tina,
Not worth the price
 
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
This is a great Irish, smooth floral with plenty hints of chocolate. I enjoyed neat as the smooth finish needs no water or ice.
 
David
David,
Disappointing to say the least. Thin and harsh. My 62.2% Balcones Single Cask is smoother than this and holds a ton more flavor. Yes it is a younger whisky, but there should be some tasting other than just a mild sweetness and then fading to nothing.
 
Vince
Vince,
I really enjoyed it. I'll be buying it!
 
Kathy
Kathy,
Lovely, smooth, and buttery. Delicious neat, and enjoyed after a nice steak dinner.
 
Forrest
Forrest,
Definitely one of the fruitier drama I’ve had, but still has that distinctive Irish finish to it. Would get it again.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Smooth.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Great whiskey for me as a beginner. Loving it.
 
Jun
Jun,
It's pretty good. Has a nice oat finish.
 
Brian
Brian,
An outstanding and well priced aged Irish Whiskey. I am partial to Jameson's in all its varieties, but have had all the most common Irish bottles, including Teeling, Bushmills, Tullamore Dew, Powers, Redbreast, Knappogue, Tyrconnel, etc. This is a very good, well balanced, Irish Whiskey. It has depth and great body, flavor. Will explore more of the Bushmills family.
 
Jason
Jason,
Love it! Straight with one or 2 rocks is a great way to end an evening
 
Jim
Jim,
Outstanding, had better with killbeggan. Smooth, great on the rocks. Worked good in cookies I made with it( soaked pecans in it).
 
Jude
Jude,
This Irish Whiskey was much better than those on the tasting boxes. However, i’m not as big a fan of Irish whiskey as i thought i’d be. Gave a 6 rating so as to not discredit it because of my individual pickiness. Can appreciate the craft, and can definitely tell why some might choose this for themselves.
 
COLIN
COLIN,
Smooth, delicious single malt. I'd take this all day over Jameson's, but there are more complex Irish single malts out there for a few dollars more. This is still a great whiskey though.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Love this single malt. For the price, it is ridiculously smooth and flavorful.
 
Evgeniya
Evgeniya,
Sooo smooth. Usually I prefer my drink on rocks but this one... well. It absolutely perfect neat. Sweet, smooth. Well rounded. No water needed, seriously.
 
Leif
Leif,
It's ok. Taste is bright and crisp, which I like, but also has a medicinal taste to it which means I won't buy it again.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Not as smooth as I would like. Definitely had some vanilla in there. It was ok for being 40 bucks.
 
Joe
Joe,
Consistent flavor and body throughout. Malty caramel notes.
 
Sumner
Sumner,
Very Smooth Whiskey, but I still prefer Jameson
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Very smooth. I like it straight up. Vanilla on the front slight spice on the finish. Nice daily drinker.

Sweet top with a little spice. Decent at this price point.

Not bad, but not better than Jameson.
 
Ernest
Ernest,
This is the Irish whiskey that I was looking for. Extremely smooth with a hint of the aged barrel taste. My social club has made this our signature drink.

This was indeed a good whiskey in this price category. I highly recommend it.

Smoothest whiskey ever

I buy this often. It is very smooth and has a great flavor.
 
Chris
Chris,
Very good Irish Whiskey. Very easy to drink straight or with ice. Keep mine in freezer and have straight at the end of the day. Smooth. Can taste the apple and honey with no burn.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
It's a fine whiskey, but it's a little one note. At this price there's a lot of other more interesting Irish whiskeys in my opinion for not much more money.
 
Clark
Clark,
The first whisky my wife and I tried (not counting shots and mixers in our respective younger years). Smooth, non-smoky Irish whisky. It is our go to drink when we are not experimenting with other whiskys.
 
Jason
Jason,
My favorite of the Bushmill flavors. This is what I grew up on.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Always good to have for one of those days when you don't really have an occasion to drink... Nice and honey sweet at the top
 
Alan
Alan,
Never really knew much about Irish whiskey besides Jameson. After trying the bush mills I gotta say I’m going to try more Irish whiskey. Overall a good whiskey to start with if you’re new to aged whiskeys.

Great classic Irish taste and very smooth.
 
Tim
Tim,
This is a good jumping on point for someone new to whiskey. Nothing spectacular, simple, approachable. At the price point it’s worth having on hand in the home bar but not worth the price of a pour at most restaurants or bars. Cheers
 
Ellen
Ellen,
Smooth as you'd expect an Irish whisky to be, but the extra bourbon barrel aging gives it extra flavor complexity. Best neat or with a tiny bit of ice.

Ok

Quite nice, midweek whisky, bit more peaty than our usual tipple, but still enjoyable none the less

The 10 yr. Is one of my favorites and on my go to list whenever I'm stuck needing a good inexpensive whiskey to sip.
