Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1987 BA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.07 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This is a friendly Bowmore, which you could drink all evening during some company from people that like an occasional dram. It's nothing spectacular, but it's still very decent.
    • Nose
      Soapy, mineral, and herbal are the key words. Lavender, potpourri, wet rocks, fresh coriander. All in all quite soapy. Then there is rather green barley, vanilla, and a distinct nose of smoke. Water reduces the soapy character and empowers the malty and herbal character. The smoke is more detectable, with some cold ash. 
    • Taste
      Still quite soapy: some good old lavender soap from l'Occitane. Lemon curd, pepper, vanilla, and barley. It's rather simple and compact.
    • Finish
      Rather short, and just a prolongation from the taste. 

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    The notorious FWP factor is there, but not in a very annoyable way. It's more soapy than perfumy anyway. This actually is an enjoyable 1980 's Bowmore.
    • Nose
      Soapy and some perfume. This is undoubtely Bowmore of the 1980's. Flowery (lavender and hay) and hints of smoke at the background,
    • Taste
      Fresh and clean. Fruit intermingled with light peat. Lemon zest. Vanilla and some spice. Some soapy notes again.
    • Finish
      Not that long. Dry. Bitter sweetness.
