    Half empty bottle, uncorked 38 days ago. In the past four weeks, there has been a very nice development in the empty bottle: gentle mix of smoke, sweetness and quite complex variety of flavors.

      mildly soft smoke and peat notes
    • Taste

      Oak smoke spices sweetness
      just medium length, getting a little drier, pleasantly warming

    Perhaps the ideal entry into the world of smoky whiskys.
    Overwhelmed nobody and for about € 26.00
    a nicely matured, pleasantly smoky Bowmore.
    • Nose
      maritime (salty), citrusy, fresh, pleasant smoke;
    • Taste
      first behave, then smoke, ashes, sweetness (citrus fruits, lemons), herbs and salt;
    • Finish
      short to medium length finish, oak and cold smoke linger;

  4. Myke scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    complex for affordable entry-level whisky; very nice if you like some smoke.
    • Nose
      80 80
      clear smoke! Citrus fruits and other (light) fruits. Light honey sweetness. Also hides some campfire (may come from the smoke). Very light vanilla aromas. Light oak aromas. Smells pleasant (nothing phenolic).
    • Taste
      81 81
      Smoke! Spices and light fruits. Recognize sweet and sherry. Something chocolatey with light oak. Very slightly oily and malty (very little).
    • Finish
      81 81
      smoky (also a little campfire), has something of smoked ham (very present and can still be tasted hours later). Dark chocolate. Slightly malty tone. It also has something of coffee espresso. Long finish.
