Many whiskies are icons. Busmills Original is the Irish whiskey that was around my house for Irish Coffees as a child. Before I know anything about whiskey, I had learned that Bushmills was special.
I had to make sure to record these tasting notes before this bottle was depleted and evicted. This particular liter was purchased at Trader Joe's for a mere $18.99 and was featured in the "Lazy Irish Coffee".
Bushmills, like many Irish whiskeys is triple distilled and therefore very smooth. It's also a blend of single malt and grain whiskey bringing balance.
