  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Part of a CWC tasting with David Stirk organized by DramTime
    • Nose
      The nose gives a well balanced Bowmore. It’s very fruity, fresh, herbal and complex. It’s very gentle. The peat is complimentary to the rest. This is what Bowmore is known for and good at. It’s of the friendliest peated whiskies comming from Islay. Ripe fruits and oak spices. The refill casks adds subtle nutty notes. I get salted macadamia’s.
    • Taste
      Well matured on the palate. Sweet and sour. Subtle dried red fruits and again nuttiness. Green leaves, oak and peat.
    • Finish
      Long. Nice balance between peat and fruits. Also nuttiness is present.

      It is a good dram, but when taking the price in consideration this is to expensive for what you get. For approximately €200 there are way better whiskies out there.

  3. Koning scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Refined and well matured Bowmore. It's very pleasant and enjoyable but lacks the wow-factor.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Medium and well integrated peat, but unmistakenly Islay. Milk chocolate, fruity (lemon, bramble, raisin), lavender honey.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very round mouth feel, with soft medicinal peat. On the palate sour citrus fruits and red berries, soy sauce, espresso and a salty edge.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium peat, cacao, red berries and soy sauce again, quite maritime.

    Wonderful whisky
    • Nose
      Very subtle smell, some peat and smoke, not too emphatic. Also clear fruity aromas, citrus. And also sweet, honey, and some salty.
    • Taste
      Wow, again very subtle, very nice and full taste, sweet, also red fruit and chocolate, with some smoke.
    • Finish
      Long aftertaste, some smoke and red fruit.

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very lovely, very nice.
    • Nose
      Dry, ash, with a touch of peat and smoke, also maritime character. A lot of citrus influences  with toffee, honey and lavendel.
    • Taste
      More sweet in the nose, caramel, strawberries covered with dark chocolate. At the background a whiff of smoked nuts and sea-salt.
    • Finish
      Lovely balanced sweetness. Smoke with a whiff of black-berries and prunes.
