    • Nose
      92 92
      Fruit notes mixed with sherry, tobacco leaves, forest soil, umami, orange peel, caramel, ripe pears, barely alcohol, very harmonious, complex, appears very ripe ... a touch of "Bowmore soap" :-)
      Lightweight peat
    • Taste
      89 89
      What a start, now comes the alcohol, tannins, keg keg! Sweetness of sherry, the complex steps in the background, peat, cold ashes, sweet smoke
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, strong, a lot of barrel and slight bitterness

  6. larswehmeier scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Intense, barrel-emphasized Bowmore. Very cute.
    • Nose
      Intense sticky sweet and dark fruity. Dried dates and figs in syrup. Ashy, dry smoke above it.
    • Taste
      The smoke arrives on the tongue first. Followed closely by red fruits and sweet jam. Intense sweet. Somewhat perfumed.
    • Finish
      Medium long, mild. Hardly any smoke. Pleasant barrel flavor.

  7. Immerenga scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    N: Oh my, oh my. Sweeeeeeet peat. What an entry. Dried red fruits. It almost smells oily and heavy. I can´t smell any more, I gotta try this

    M: So soft and mild. Oh what a surprise. Sweet, juicy and yet somehow at the same time dry sherry notes all the way. And, surprisingly, almost no smoke anymore. I like it

    F: Medium long finish completely in line with the nose and mouth. Sherry pure and nothing much else.

  9. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A great and very sweet Bowmore, which is somewhat disturbed by a yeast note and definitely does not tolerate water.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet chocolate cake, raisins, wonderfully integrated and aromatic smoke, light ashiness and nice and greasy, sweet barbecue sauce, then here and there a few yeasty notes come through, with water suddenly the sour yeast note dominates
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet, red fruits, a lot of pressure from the alcohol, extremely creamy and chocolaty, very warming, the smoke presses together with the alcohol, water is not good for it - it is immediately watered down with the smallest amount
    • Finish
      89 89
      Spice and smoke now dominate here, accompanied by chocolate and creaminess, the whole thing remains sweet together with a few raisins on the palate

  10. penumbra scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    (﹁﹁) ~→The px hand-filled which is not the bottom color of the pot really doesn’t work.
    • Nose
      Caramel, coffee mate, lovely vanilla, rye soft oatmeal, roasted meat, slightly salt and pepper and charcoal roasted nuts. There may be a few berries, bananas, figs, etc., but it's not worth mentioning, the wooden barrel, the lingering sense of artificial fragrance.
    • Taste
      95% black chocolate, Colombian sunlight, fruit acid and tannins, after adapting to scorching bitterness, sugar, vanilla, yellow apricot, honey locust, peat are still insignificant, stove ash, pepper, tobacco.
      Fair, slightly oily, low sweetness, acidity, tannins, heavy bitterness, no pungency.
    • Finish
      Medium length, cocoa, sea salt, stove ash, frosting sugar.
