The second component of the Busker Triple Smooth we’re looking at is the Busker Single Malt Irish Whiskey. This single malt is a blend of whiskeys aged 100% in ex-Bourbon and 100% in ex-Sherry. No finishing done here.
Not too much else to chat about up here, so let’s get into it!

Busker Single Malt Irish Whiskey – Overall
Aroma has a nice richness to it that pulls notes from the fruit, earthy, malty and sweets categories and spreads them out evenly and nicely; Palate find a similar profile, but a bit more on the earthy and malty side of things and a drier delivery; Finish loses some of the sweetness and fades to drier fruit and cereal notes.
I’m enjoying this one.
Busker Single Malt Irish Whiskey – Final Thoughts and Score
This is a whiskey I can sit, sip, not think about it and be content with what’s in my glass. It’s a perfectly fine whiskey and I’m looking forward to making some cocktails with it and seeing how it does.
I hope they continue to mature and develop this Busker Single Malt Irish Whiskey. As a freshman release, it’s quite nice and if they keep this up, they’re going to have some truly world-class whiskey on their hands in the near future.
