  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.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, dry, smoky. A little fruit is still there, but the focus is on dry wood, some chocolate and smoke in the finish.

  2. SchottenDicht scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.

    Answer to Bowmore:

    The Bowmore Vault editions do not contain age information; the 50.1% vol. in the Bowmore Vault Edition Second Release are not barrel strengths.

    It is a marriage of First Fill ex-bourbon and First Fill Oloroso sherry barrels as well as refill and hogshead barrels and First Fill red wine barrique barrels.

  10. Astrid scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Conveys delicious flavors without being exciting. It cannot offer a certain age with the associated maturity - but you don't expect that from a NAS bottling either.
    • Nose
      84 84
      fine smoke drifts sweet vanilla, looks clean with a slight sharpness in the nose, a lot of smoked ham with a thin layer of caramel hangs in the stone cellar, a touch of oak wood with liquid honey, lime and orange juice, cotton candy and banana, fine seasoning after ground Cedar bark, biscuit, in the distance typical sherry fruits indicate a corresponding influence
    • Taste
      83 83
      sweet and juicy with vanilla and caramel, a lot of oak and ham smoked in the fireplace, the smoke transports spicy facets like cinnamon and nutmeg, rocks on a seashore, in the distance sherry with raisins, slightly dark
    • Finish
      83 83
      Smoke dominates, sulfur flashes, sherry warms, vanilla and oak are accompanied by a hint of caramel, spice, and in the end, cold ash and smoked ham remain
