BUSHMILLS 12 YRS SINGLE MALT WHISKY
Nose: Very very fruity. Peaches, bananas, mango straight off the bat. These then give way to the sherry influence with marzipan, raisins, malt and a hint of allspice.
In the mouth: It has a light, delicate mouthfeel. Very honeyed with cloves initially, like a cold ‘hot toddy’ then the fruit makes its appearance, caramelised banana, Seville orange zest, sweet malt with clove spice running throughout before notes of chocolate, raisins and star anise come to the fore.
The finish is medium, remaining sweet although with a touch of spicy European oak.
