Whisky Reviews for Double Barrel Highland Park / Bowmore DL
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.82 points
- A whiskey too light, lacking in pep and probably still young. A certain complexity / "jumble" emerges overall from this dram. (Tasted blind)
Light nose (43,46 max), fresh, minty, grassy with a very light peat. On the end some sourness and lemon. (Tasted blind)
Well it's clearly diluted with a very light attack. In spite of everything there is a certain dryness, sourness. Then behind a bottom of peat you can feel toffee and cocoa. Finally appears some spices. (Tasted blind)
A beautiful length double face ... sometimes acrid and unpleasant, sometimes buttery and pleasant. (Tasted blind)
mineral/earthy smoke, grist/cereal, heather, some linen, lemon, (84)
oily, smokey, mineral, quite austere, (84)
slightly bitter briefly, spirit feels a bit raw, vanilla, lemon, more smoke, dry. (82)
At the very end of the bottles life some of Bowmore's exostic fruit notes reared their heads as well (84)
- Blind tasting of a sample from Henri. I recognised the Bowmore straigth away, but the Highland Park is not so obvious.
