Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1995 CWC

  1. peathead scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Is this a top whisky? No, but it is certainly not bad. He is just good without more. Would I buy another bottle? No, I think I would rather pay more and buy a Bowmore 18yo OB.
    • Nose
      From the moment I open the bottle I immediately smell and smoke. So that promises. In the glass I notice mainly peat and some smoke. After some 'breathing' there is some more diesel smell, slightly fruity and unfortunately some burnt rubber. Not much, but annoyingly enough. With a little water, everything comes loose. Much more peat, smoke, salt and no burnt rubber anymore. Delicious maritime with flowers in the background. Finally the typical Bowmore characteristics.
    • Taste
      This is much lighter than the nose suggests. It is a 'thick' whisky, which is oil-like in the mouth. I taste quite a bit of pepper on my tongue. There is little peat and almost no smoke at all. Bizarre for an Islay whisky. There is some more fruit and heather flavor in the background. The whisky is even thicker with water. Much more flowers and fruit with light peat now. Delicious. Still almost no smoke, but that is not bad at all. With water everything becomes much more complex.
    • Finish
      Some peppery. Remains on the lips. Still no smoke and very light peat. With water there is less pepper and I taste flowers again (roses?).
