Rich. Dark. Aged in Oloroso Sherry... It doesn’t get much better than this.

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 those corporate blokes knew 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.

It's no secret that Irish Whiskey has experienced a boom in recent years. Bushmills was one of only two distilleries in Ireland in 1972 until it was taken over by Irish Distillers. Bushmills is now in the hands of Jose Cuervo and celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2008.

Black Bush is a triple-distilled, malt blend of 80% malt Whiskey to 20% grain Whiskey. This Irish Whiskey is matured for around 8-10 years in former Oloroso Sherry casks, with rich, smooth notes of fruit, this dram is full of character and history. Bottled at 40% ABV, the blend won the top prize in its category at the World Whiskies Awards.

Ratings & Reviews
Robert
Robert,
By far my favorite Irish whiskey so far. Smooth and inexpensive.
 
Danny
Danny,
Blackbush, my first ever tasting and as an A/B comparison with Teeling Small Batch nose: sherry, sweet, vanilla, fruity (almost banana), apple, fresh, slightly rubbery but not smokey, bassy! taste: Slightly flat/ muted compared to nose (at first), sweet, vanilla, buttery, some bitterness (maybe woody), spice, cake finish: quite thin, slightly spirity (not unpleasantly), sherry, wood Pleasant and approachable, I bought a bottle after my grandad bought 20 bottles for a wedding, thoroughly enjoyed then and happy to have a bottle now.

Mike,
Bushmills Red Bush is definitely a favorite. Good day, hard day. always smooth and refined but much more of depth and satisfaction than regular Bushmill which is good on certain occasions. Red Bush qualifies for all occasions. Not to soft or hard. just perfect unless you need more

Not a favorite but not bad. Let a little water mellow it a little and it’s a decent sipper.

Anna,
Great "everyday" whiskey for mixing / when you want something easy on the bank account. Nice and smooth, bit of spice.

Sherry & fruit on the nose. Light fruit & spice Moderate finish. An easy sip at the end of a day. Perfect in an Irish Coffee.

Decent, affordable NAS Irish whiskey. Great for someone finding their feet, a great go to.
 
Michael
Michael,
No doubt there is better Irish out there... but at this price, its a shockingly good value with way more complexity and flavor than just about anything else comparable.
 
Doug
Doug,
Smells like pears and apples with a hint of smoke…taste includes light sherry, prominent nuts, a little cinnamon a bit woody (oak?) and grass or grain (not sure how to describe that!). Outstanding.
 
Michael
Michael,
Wonderful cinnamon spiciness. The Apple / fruit flavor really comes through.

Standard Irish Whiskey, strong caramel notes, smooth finish.
 
Derek
Derek,
Really enjoy this with cola. Flavors play well without adding additional sweetness like a rum would.

Like Johnny Walker Black Label. Chocolaty, caramely, and easy to drink.
 
Tristan
Tristan,
Amber color. Sherry-esque with aromas of green apple peels and a touch of sea-salt and caramel. The palate is just showing peanut butter made with roasted nuts with a touch of sweetness. Very light body and structure, but I think it’s a great for sipping. Doesn’t need water or ice.
