  1. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Complex sweetness, with dark honey and very faint underlying smoke, oak, and yellow fruit. Fresh.
    • Taste
      Sweet and complex arrival. Rich honey and oak, faint smoke, white fruit, mild spice. Very balanced.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet with linger spice and a whisper of smoke.

  2. Jackson05 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not a bad dram by any means, but just veers towards a little too sweet. Lacks a little cohesion and excitement. One that I’ll pour and not think too much about. Which works sometimes!

    Edit: I was a little too mean to this at 85. It’s very solid modern Bowmore really. Nothing earth shattering, but really no FWP at all, as I was expecting from an 80s bottling. I think 87 is a fair score.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Not a very expressive nose. A little smoke in the form of cigarette ash, some white stone fruits, but it’s muted. Simple syrup. Fairly light and summery, but pleasant.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Flavours gain steam here with the ash building along with fruity notes and some agave syrup. A tad sweet, but some nice flavours.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Keeps building to a nice robust finish. Definitely the best part for me. Nice ashtray smoke co-mingling with fruit cocktail in light syrup.
