Whisky Reviews for Double Barrel Highland Park / Bowmore DL

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.80 points

  1. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A whiskey too light, lacking in pep and probably still young. A certain complexity / "jumble" emerges overall from this dram. (Tasted blind)
    • Nose
      Light nose (43,46 max), fresh, minty, grassy with a very light peat. On the end some sourness and lemon. (Tasted blind)
    • Taste
      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)
    • Finish
      A beautiful length double face ... sometimes acrid and unpleasant, sometimes buttery and pleasant. (Tasted blind)

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample from Henri. I recognised the Bowmore straigth away, but the Highland Park is not so obvious.
    • Nose
      Peat, lime wine gum, apple, malt, orange, 7Up, salt, laurel and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Lime, peat, citrus, green tea, salt and toffee.
    • Finish
      Peat, toffee, lime and leaves.

  5. alectron scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      mineral/earthy smoke, grist/cereal, heather, some linen, lemon, (84)
    • Taste
      oily, smokey, mineral, quite austere, (84)
    • Finish
      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)
