What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Bushmills Original
Quote 1 “No other whiskey could possibly be this good. It is smooth and I like that it is a simple original recipe. Nobody has to mess with this at all. It is perfect just the way it is and has been for over 400 years. I even pour it over banana bread or other quick bread. Fine for Christmas pudding and fruit cake. Better than brandy. I love the flavor of this whiskey. Delicious! Yes, I drink it too!”
Quote 2 “This my favorite IrishWhiskey! It is smooth and tasty with notes of smoke, peat and a gentle oak sweetness. It would be absolutely criminal to mix it with anything other than a dribble of water. Just the best, in my opinion. ”
