  1. Iron Lung scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    An exceptional whisky.
    I got a sample for my birthday.

    A clear 95 points

  2. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    An excellent, very balanced, chocolate-smoky, intense and also very complex Bowmore. Swims pretty well.
    So should the default OAs like to fail ...

      Sherry, a hint of undergrowth, yellow dried fruits, dry smoke, dark chocolate, earthy. Very deep.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Harmonious onset, sweet, fruity sherry (red berries, raisins, figs), dried fruit, rich dry smoke, ashes, some undergrowth, plus the typical blackcurrants. Cotton candy and a lot of cocoa. Has fire and gradually becomes rounder.
      Tight and concentrated, for chewing. Gets drier.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Grandiose, long, harmonious finish.
      Again, blackcurrants, raisins and figs, plus the dry campfire smoke, lots of cocoa, dark chocolate, engine oil and a hint of tar.

    He needs time, he needs concentration, you should not try him in between times at a fair (which I tried, but then I rather bottled up the rest and now tried at home in peace). Definitely not a simple malt, definitely not a bad malt and definitely as extraordinary as you can hope for a handfilled.

      wow, of course, it is heavily loaded with sherry, quite dry, fruity, almost as if one smells of a red wine, easily harmonizing smoke, raisins, with time he opens up and gets spicier, almost Christmas, clearly oak, wet tobacco, This is personally too much and too focused, somehow it is not fun to spend a long time with the Verriechen, after the first sip suddenly clearly chocolate and although surprisingly whole milk, overall now much more pleasant, my nose has apparently needed something to get used to the invading flavors

      Wow, intense and full bodied, it goes on with a flavor bomb, massive sherry, dry, a lot of oak, almost chewing, espresso, concentrated raisins, the second sip, I also go through faster and can now smoke directly in combination with the enjoy fierce Sherrynoten, the chocolate is also here, but in the dark version
    • Finish

      behind the smoke comes through the wall of massive barrel influence, now also quite intense, is still tobacco, slightly nutty and the raisin extract continues, very long lingering, after some time I have to think again of red wine

    So ... an absolutely not overrated barrel, I think.

    Really great taste experience and therefore inexpensive.

    What I’m missing in contrast to some other bowmores,
    is the stinky rubber (by the way, my wife disagrees on this point ;-)) It is not tasty - sweet. For me it has no sulfur and no violets.

    But does that bother me? No, not at all.

    There is the darkest chocolate and black currants as if freshly picked from the bush.
    Dry, unobtrusive sherry and still black currants after more than 20 minutes in the finish.

    Delicious. A little water is recommended.
