[heading subtitle=”Bushmills Black Bush” title=”Irish Whiskey”][row cols_nr=”2″][col size=”8″]With a heritage rooted in authenticity and quality, Bushmills Irish Whiskey is produced, aged and bottled at Ireland’s oldest working distillery in the village of Bushmills in County Antrim on the far north coast of Ireland. The Old Bushmills Distillery uses 100% malted barley to make triple distilled malt whiskey, which is what creates the rich, mellow and distinct flavour that is the Bushmills house style.
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 whiskey floats across the tongue to deliver dark‚ velvety fruity notes right through to the back of your throat.”
Bushmills Black Bush Blended Irish Whiskey
Black Bush will always have a very special place in my heart as it’s the very first whiskey I was introduced to when I left college to work in North Donegal, not too far from Bushmills. Black Bush takes the 50-50 blend of Bushmills original to 80% malt and starts introducing the whiskey novice to the world of blended single malt and single grain Irish whiskey. As a natural follow on to Bushmills original and also because of it’s cult status, it earns a Pooka 2 rating although at Pooka 1 prices!
Bushmills Black Bush Mini Blended Irish Whiskey
A miniature version of the classic Black Bush blended whiskey. Black Bush is one of the all time greats of the Irish whiskey world. It manages to be all things to all people but still be a true Two Pooka Whiskey at a One Pooka price. If you’ve never tasted Black Bush, buy one of these but my advice is to add it to a larger order as a Black Bush extra treat to avoid paying too much for shipping!
