Member Ratings and Notes
Super-malty flavor.  Slight hints of smoke.  Notes of Whoppers candy. 
Sweet nose. Rich smokey taste. Finish is smooth and malty
More of a scotch nose and body, finish fades quickly to just a tingling tongue. Enjoyable.
Strong, sweet nose. Very smooth, with well-balanced peat and fruit. Hints of cherry. A nice finish that gradually dissipates
Good, drinkable, but no magic. 
Chocolate, cherry...with a smokey, heavy flavor.  Surprisingly smooth
Tastes like Scotch. A little peaty.  Warm but smooth
Better when aged to 16 years, Bushmills is doing well to approach a Scotish style.  The vanillas are well integrated with the malty/barley flavors.  Day old beer after a party along with some nice fruity over-ripe bananas.  The Port finish adds some darker grapy notes but the grassy/malty flavors still overpower the deeper winey notes.
