  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Difficult, blind it would be more like 87P, it has nice notes and character, but such a delicate body and of course the EXTREME Old Bottle Flavor. Would like to try it as it was back then, did it have more volume, apart from the leg notes?
    • Nose
      Rarely had the cellar and stable so clearly old for easily 25-30 minutes, then very subtle malt behind it, dried grapefruit, pineapple chips, extinguished campfire, ginger, sage, fresh oak and green tea, everything very delicate behind the cellar, papaya
    • Taste
      Needs a start in the mouth, cereals, malt, fine, ancient campfire smoke, subtle grapefruit, pineapple, some tree resin, ginger, gentian, green apple
    • Finish
      Green apple, pineapple, dried malt, wax, linen, medium length

  2. LeChiffre scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A delicious Bowmore that I would have recognized blindly as this one. The nose is simply wonderful, on the palate, in my opinion, a few% more alcohol would have been good for him. Otherwise great taste and Bowmore through and through.

      soft and sweet in the beginning; mineral-earthy notes appear alongside the sweet fruit notes; delicate smoke
