NOSE - Big and full to start off with‚ quickly becoming light with a hint of a spicy fruit TASTE - Floats across your tongue to the back of your throat where it rests as a slight sherry sweetness FINISH - A lingering‚ smooth sweetness that flourishes into your cheeks
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - (Tried & True Award)- Deeper notes of ripe red delicious apple and sage with lifted vanilla and honeyed aromas. Rich and honeyed in the mouth, with baked cherries, lemon zest, and brown sugar. Very mellow fruit-tinged finish.  (Mar 2015)

Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Possesses a high ratio (80%+) of malt whiskey. Black Bush’s racy bouquet offers aromas of toffee, cotton candy, malt mash and cream highlight. Palate entry is deep, dark caramel-like and stunningly luscious. Simply, one of the greatest whiskeys from Ireland. — P.P. (7/1/2004) — 90-95 (Jun 2006)

Wine maker notes
“An intriguing name and an intriguing flavour. Right from the pour you’ll notice the dark colouring‚ a result of maturing for up to seven years in spanish oloroso sherry casks and sweet bourbon barrels. As for the taste‚ this 80% malt premium whiskey floats across the tongue to deliver dark‚ velvety fruity notes right through to the back of your throat.”
