Not the best Bushmills, well for me that is.
I also think most Bushmills could do with being bottled at a higher ABV anyway.
Their cask strength stuff is stellar but at a tasting recently I found that the latest bottling, the 1608 Anniversary Edition, stood out over a lot of the others and tt is bottled at 46%
as opposed to the others at 40%
. We had Bushmills nas, Blackbush, 10yo, 16yo & 21yo as well as te 1608. The 3 that stood out on the day were the Blackbush the 16yo and the 1608. However when I added water to the Blackbush (which I usually never do anyway) it just disappeared
I was very impressed with the 16yo and bought a bottle and it was much better than I remembered but I was slightly disappointed with the 21yo. A good whiskey but not sure it was worth double the 16yo.
