Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1996 HL

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      90 90
      Nice, round, fruity, a bit mentholated. Quite complex.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Much nicer than the sister cask #17078 that was also released for OMC's 20th anniversary. While that one was austere, this one is obviously more complex, with a distinctly sharp fruitiness that contrasts well with the Bowmore peaty, smoky spirit.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Beautiful finish, with a wallop of tangy fruitiness at the end, and a pleasant, oaky, sweetness.
