Bushmills – 16 yo – Tasting Notes

Tasted this expression from Bushmills recently in a #BushmillsWhiskey Twitter Tasting. A lovely but far to sweet dram for me honestly. 

Nose
Kiwi, too ripe passion fruit, sweetness underneath, wood varnish, spekkies, sweet shop, stewed fruit, caramel, gooseberries, thick creamy vanilla, cake, dried berries, cranberry

Palate
Bit oily almost, pepper, high vanilla notes, too sweet, demerara sugar sweet, fruit, oranges, red apple, banana, raisin, pudding crème, rich fruit cake, dried fruits, figs, apricots and some dryness like nutmeg and cinnamon, bit woody

Finish

Medium length, sweet, honey, sugar and some nutella

Score
Palate s more enjoyable then nose but too sweet. Scoring this one an 6,5/10, I find it just too sweet
