  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    In fact, its smoky note is more intense than you would normally expect from Bowmore. That would suit me, who I really like smoky whiskys, very much, if it weren't for this slight doubt as to whether the amount of smoke here shouldn't just mask missing age ...
    Apart from that, it can still be drunk quite well.

      For a Bowmore, it has a very intense and pronounced smoke note. In addition warm cherry juice, grapes, raisins, leather. Moist wood, warm, earthy floor. A herbal mix of chervil, mint and parsley. Furniture polish.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Starts with a pleasant creme brulee, cocoa, toffee and hazelnut brittle. Only mildly smoky, but dry and right from the start with a good stack of wood. Slightly bitter herbs slowly work their way forward. A fruit note whose identification is difficult at first, but then turns out to be dried figs and dates. Old leather. After a while, the smoke takes on strength and lies dry on the tongue.

      Medium length, dry, smoky. A little fruit is still there, but the focus is on dry wood, some chocolate and smoke in the finish.

    Significantly better than the last edition, which was too young and expressive and above all massively overpriced. Seems like it's learned from it. The price is on a more realistic level and above all: The fabric tastes good. Nice smoky. I am satisfied and positively surprised.

    When I opened the bottle about five months ago, I was still disappointed with the whisky, but a little oxygen seems to have done him good in the meantime.
    It's a little smokier than Bowmore is used to, but if smoke was to be the main essential, I would have expected a little more.
    Ultimately, a nice, round, Bowmore-typical overall impression remains, with a somewhat stronger emphasis on smoke.

      Smoky, honey-sweet. Light sherry impression, barbecue sauce
    • Taste
      86 86
      Peaty. Short sweet, then much drier than the sweet smell suggests. Heather and wild berries are gradually finding their place
    • Finish
      86 86
      In the finish, herbs dominate that have recently developed in taste. The whole medium length, then the smoke takes over sustainably.
