Guest Review! Bushmills 1608 Anniversary Edition By Daniel Küpper

Editors note: I was introduced to Daniel through Instagram algorithm, weirdly, but it turns out we share some interests, including photography and whisky, so it seemed natural to offer a guest spot. Fortunately, he said yes! Enjoy:     Happy Anniversary My kind of party  I’ve always been a fan of Bushmills. The Irish blend

BattleScotch! Bushmills 10y Single Malt v Jura Origin 10y with Dan, Ryan & Goran

Alright alright alright! BattleScotch! Battle of the 10 year olds! It’s gonna be dirty fighting and name calling the whole way down. On the left, Bushmills 10y Single Malt, on the right, Jura Origin 10y. Both crowd pleasers, and while the results won’t tarnish anyone’s enjoyment of either, it might inform our purchases in the

BattleScotch! Bushmills White Label Blend v Bushmills 10y Single Malt with Dan, Goran, Ryan & Chris

Here we go again! BattlesScotch gonna leave you BattleScortched (patent pending) with all the hot Bushmills on Bushmills action up in here! Something different this time: introducing the Overall Impression category, basically a fourth vote either way for the complete experience of the whisky, as a few times the scores didn’t truly reflect the decisions

Bushmills 10y with Dan & Goran

Another box-checking entry we’d been looking forward to.  We’ve had the Bushmills 10y before but it didn’t survive long enough to be reviewed. Oh well, a timely return.

Bushmills Irish Whiskey with Dan & Goran

In celebration of St Patty’s day, the patron saint of hamburgers or somesuch, and also in the spirit of completevism (you get to 50 odd reviews and you start wanting to know the totality of a line), here’s our review of the little brother of the Bushmill‘s line. smell dan – berry, wood, honey, sharp

Bushmills 16y with The Dan

For all that this site is called iscotch, I do love me some fine Irish whiskey.  And this is some fine Irish whiskey. Bushmills is pretty much always good.  Previously we’ve reviewed Black Bush and thoroughly enjoyed it.  This single malt Irish whiskey continues that tradition. smell dan – sweet, unburnt caramel, floral simon –

Bushmills Black Bush with The Dan

Wrapping up this foray into Whiskies Irish is a bottle The Dan had set aside for review.  This is an Irish Whiskey blend, mixing malt and grain whiskeys, but with more malt than their normal white label. Neat: The Dan – Oaky, honey. Soft aftertaste & light on the tongue. Soft mouthfeel.  Me – smooth,

Jameson Black Barrel with Dan & Ryan

A slightly odd bottle this time. Some Jameson Black Barrel arrived in a covert container on the doorstep, a sample from somebody’s stash. Thanks, generous stranger! Jameson is an Irish whiskey we’re familiar with, having tried the White Label and Select Reserve in the past. The Black Barrel this time refers to the charring of the

The Top 18 iScotch Posts That Weren’t

In the course of running a blog, you lose shit. If, like me, you’re a photographer first and foremost, you don’t lose photos, but you do lose slips of paper. Especially when those slips of paper were last seen at some point in a late night analysis of the subjective qualities of grain-based intoxicants. But, since I
