    I was wondering about Bushmills Single Malt 16 Yearold? It goes for $75 here in WA. I dont spend that much very often...but once in a while I might be willing to if the money offers a unique flavor experience.
    I really have enjoyed the Irish's I have had so far. I am still trying to pick up a bottle of Connemara becuase it sounds quite a bit different from the bottles I have.
    Anyone have an opinion on the Bushmills?

    I have experience with the other Bushmills. I like Blackbush better than the 10 YO Single Malt. I don't care for the 'white' bush at all. I think I had the 16 in a bar once or twice and I believe it was nice. I've never owned a bottle though.

    I recently acquired a bottle of Bushmills 1608, which was their 12yr. old duty free only blend. Why they quit making it I'll never know. It is fabulous whiskey. I like it even better than the 16yr. old. I have never been an overly big Bushmills fan but the 1608 is plum stuff!

    The 16yo Bushmills is one of the smoothest and softest whiskeys that you´re ever likely to try. It makes Auchentoschan and Glengoyne appear like Stagg! (Well, almost.)

    What I enjoy most about Bushmills is how they contribute to the variety of the whisk(e)y world. Despite being single malt, it is easily distinguished from its Scotch counterparts.
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    If I'm not mistaken, the 16yr Bushmills is Port-finished, so it's probably going to have a sweet taste. I had a shot once a long time ago. Vaguely remembered that it tasted good.

    Keep in mind also that Bushmills is a pretty quiet dram, so a port-finished varient will probably have a heavy port flavour...

    I believe it is three different finishes in one.

    The 16yo I sampled at Chicago Whiskeyfest was described as triple finished if my whiskey-clouded memory of that wonderful night hasn't totally failed me. I found it sublime and one of my favorites of the entire trip.

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    MIchael Collins Single Malt

    Has anyone tried this bottle yet? I stopped into the liquor store today to pick up a bottle of Rock Hill Farms. Every time I have been in to buy the RHF something else has come home instead. I have been on a little bit of an Irish kick and saw this...but I stuck to my guns and bought the RHF.
    My next Irish I was going to work for was the Bushmills 21...but most of our stores do not have it.
