Went down to one of the great shops here in town and stumbled onto a little 3 pack of Bushmills Minis (50ML). The pack has Bushmills Original, Black Bush and the 10 Year Single Malt. I also bought a mini of Jameson to get a taste of it. I was hoping to find a mini of Conemara, but no dice.
I just busted it open and I'm trying the Black Bush right now. Nice fragrance, can smell the sherry influence and sweet malt. I can taste the sherry influence too. There is an initial sherry type spice, but it is a very subtle spice. It has a strong malt flavor to it, that is different from a strongly malt flavored Single Malt Scotch. With the Scotch I get the malt more towrd the back of my palate, almost toward the throat. The BB, I get more mid-palate malt. No peat, that I can detect anyway. The malt has a vanilla creaminess as it fades. It seems sweet to me (compared to Scotch). It is smooth, and the flavors easily step from one to another in good balance (no graniness). Me thinks I like it. I can't wait to try the others. Thanks for your replies.
