I’ve been getting more into Irish Whiskey after enjoying a few different options that Jameson put out. Of course Bushmills isn’t Jameson, and that shows in two major ways. The first is price point. Bushmills is half what Jameson costs. That is a good thing. The second is taste and mouth feel, and this is where you taste that price differential. Bushmills has a wood char burn and a slight aftertaste on the back of my tongue that I don’t find appealing. My honest advice is to spend a little more, or buy this to make mixed drinks. As a sipping whiskey it is a little rough around the edges, which earned Bushmills a 62/100.
- Available pretty much everywhere.
- Good if you like to pour some whiskey in your coffee or make other mixed drinks.
- Not as refined as some options which are just a few dollars more.
- Leaves an odd taste on the back of the tongue.
