  3. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Pleasantly complex, at a good price/performance ratio.

  4. MaroFF scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant to the taste, but may be incomprehensible to people who are not very comfortable with Islay whisky. For me it is whisky as a calibration stand before learning new notes from Islay Island.
    • Nose
      intense, slightly sweet, rubber from the sole of sports shoes, heather, sea breeze, ginger
    • Taste
      bitter orange, coffee, vanilla, oak, roasted gum, delicate bitterness with a honey accent
    • Finish
      long, pleasant, bitter orange again, grapefruit, dark chocolate, warming tip with spicy notes.

  6. Glensiddich scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    This is the worst Scotch I have tasted. I had heard poor reviews of Bowmore's core range, but didn't expect it to be this bad.
