Matured in Bourbon and sherry casks, The Busker Single Pot Still is a style peculiar to Ireland, with both malted and unmalted barley in the mash; otherwise it's kind of similar to single malt, delivering more body and richness than a single grain alternative.

Other reviews... Red apples bob in a sea of pot still spice on the nose, with whole almond, strawberry tarts, and brown sugar lumps. This is smooth, light, and delicious, with grilled muffins, bourbon biscuits, spice, vanilla, and well-toasted granola, with a later development of plum and blackberry. Burnt sugar and more spice on the finish. 88 points - reviewed by: Jonny McCormick 2020

...This was immediately my favorite of the group, with a more rounded, boldly malty nose that showcases the sherry much more clearly than in the Single Malt. Aromas of clean malt meld well with the sharper sherry note, evoking citrus peel and classic oily/nutty notes that are reminiscent at times of furniture polish. The palate is more aggressively malty, with notes of cut hay, leather, and more smoldering nuttiness with a lingering element of smoke evident. The finish sees more of the youthful characteristics of this line, with some hemp rope notes giving way to more sherry-driven citrus peel and a lengthy, oily nut character. All told it’s a fairly youthful whiskey, but it’s a solid example of the single pot still style that’s worth a look at this price. -
