Nose: A warm coffee house in Seattle; roasting beans and the oily nuttiness in a fine espresso. There are little notes of malt and cereal and butter from the pastry counter with rich orange from the fruit bowl on the counter.
Palate: Notes of Seville marmalade and triple sec with winter spices and fruitcake. Zesty cocoa and milk chocolate.
Finish: Medium length with orange notes.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Bushmills 10
Quote 1 “An excellent 12yr old whisky, richer and tastier than most 12yr olds I’ve tried. Besides, I’ve tried 40+ (I know a beginner in a lot of eyes 😂). I find it sits somewhere between a Dalmour 12 and the 16. If your into sweet and non smoky or peated whiskies, this is for you.”
Quote 2 “I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion, however to leave a review without trying the whisky is nothing short of outright stupidity and to compare it to a supermarkets own brand is ludicrous. To those who have purchased and don’t like it I respect that at least you gave it a go. Whisky’s complex and diverse and one mans pleasure is another mans poison. I like this one, pleasant and easy to drink, in my opinion, 5 stars, great value for money.”
Quote 3 “Velvety goodness. Smooth and leathery with a hint of smoke. I’d prefer this over others in its range. Also, since when is 12 years considered “young”? Fantastically balanced with a great finish.”
