  1. STL scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A Bowmore all in all quite classic but unbalanced: too much alcohol on the nose and too many spices on the palate to allow it to flourish. A few drops of water do not harm him ...

    From Whiskyfun:

    Bowmore 1995/2009 (56.7%, Malts of Scotland, 'CLUBS', refill sherry butt, cask #113, 316 bottles)  Colour: pale gold. Nose: starts slightly rounder than the 1998 but gets then almost as zesty, with a slightly bigger peat and a little more vanilla. A little rosemary and sage, whiffs of roses. Maybe a little cardboard too, let’s see what happens with water. With water: it got hyper-coastal so to speak. Crabs, langoustines, clams… ;-). Mouth (neat): interesting, it’s got the same general profile as the 1998 but I do also detect notes of tropical fruits that rather hint at a 1968 Bowmore if you see what I mean. That’s right, mangos, grapefruits, passion fruits… With water: same, with the tropical fruits becoming more distinct. Pink grapefruits. Finish: long, citrusy, slightly resinous. Mint liqueur and coffee. Comments: totally great, not ‘just another very good recent Bowmore’. SGP:555 - 91 points.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/islay-blind-tasting-ii-sherry-abfuellungen-35335/ Color: full gold
    Nose: Lemon extract with a lot of salt and vanilla, slightly pungent alcohol and herbal notes of leather. Sweet, sugar-like honey with slightly muffle undertone.
    Taste: sour-bitter-sweet, tart herbs and slightly rotted lemon and orange peel. A bland lemon character spreads, with bitter herbal / nettle notes, green, immature wood and strong sugary liqueur.
    Finish: mid-length - bland and inharmonious. Outstanding vanilla aromas with bitter hints and strong smoky sweetness.
    85 points (nose: 87 / taste: 85 / finish: 83)

  7. magic_slim scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    By far the worst whisky in a blind tasting (30 participants, 6 whiskies from different Islay distilleries).
    • Nose
      Sweet on notes of vanilla, peat, smoke, lemons and
      dough. Grainy aromas and notes of fruit liquor (pineapple) are coming up.
    • Taste
      Starts sweet, than becomes warming, peaty and
      spicy with chili and salt. 
    • Finish
      Long, warming from deep inside. Remains

  10. Jeep51 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very good. At the limit it lacks only fruits, but the result is still excellent, especially this mouth ultra saline without it is disgusting.
    • Nose
      Marine, very marine: iodine, spray, seaweed. Slightly saline too. With aeration, sherry makes its appearance, and we are more on a mocha / chocolate / marine combo. Yum.
    • Taste
      Very oily, on bacon first then quickly the iodine / saline side takes over and takes everything. Very powerful, very marine (seaweed). Can be a little banana and pepper, as well as dark chocolate in the middle of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Very long on salt.
