    Re: Are You Ready For Old Bushmills Honey?

    About the only one I haven't had is Evan Williams. And the Red Stag, which isn't out yet. I have two criteria. Tastes good, yes or no. Tastes like whiskey, yes or no.

    Bushmills: yes - yes
    Turkey: yes - no
    Seagrams 7: yes - no
    Jack Daniel's: no - no

    Am I missing somebody?

    Got a bottle of this today. Had a 6.00 rebate. My wife likes EW honey reserve and seemed to like this too. She says it actually makes Bushmills drinkable. I haven't tried it yet!

    Re: Are You Ready For Old Bushmills Honey?

    The Evan Williams and the Jack Daniels honeys were both - for me - Gaaaaaaack. If anyone had told me that I was being given a sip of Robitussin, I would not have doubted in for an instant.

    I am very hopeful about the Bushmils Irish Honey, but I can't spend 1/4 of a C-note to try something that might be equally disappointing. Has anyone here also been appalled by the Evan Williams and the Jack Daniels honeys but liked the Bushmills?

    Thank you for your time.

    Easy way to find out is take some regular Bushmills and mix in some honey.

    I'm not. Thanks for asking though!

    Re: Are You Ready For Old Bushmills Honey?

    Ah done broke down an' bought it. Was $19.40 in VA anyway, instead of $25 at the DC store. I was quite pleased! It was not cloying or syrupy, nor did it give an impression of artificiality. It had a sweetness that I liked, the honey accent was there but done right, and the whiskey blend worked with it excellently.
