Bushmills Red Bush review

Second whiskey of the range, Bushmills Red Bush is a non-aged statement blend of single malt and grain whiskey aged exclusively in first fill, medium-charred ex-bourbon casks. As with the original, no mention regarding chill-filtering and colouring, so expect both, and it’s bottled at 40% ABV. You can find it around 23€ in France and £20 in the UK.

The colour is gold.

Summer fruits with peach and pear, vanilla, barley sugar and cinnamon


Very sweet and very thin, butterscotch, slight oak bitterness, vanilla, and toast covered with honey.


A what? Very short on oak spices.


Worse than the Original but more expensive. Not sure I understand.
