  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Hard to sum up.
    No weakness. A clear guideline. It's all simply superb.

    What else to look for? A little power on the nose? A little more complexity?
    Or finally settle for what you have: a work of art.
    • Nose
      92 92
      The nose is clearly superb.
      A nice explosion of fruit from the start.
      Grapefruit, papaya, pineapple, passion fruit. It is expressive, tropical, acidic, and complete despite the unidirectional side.
      A little wood, wax, cinnamon.
      With aeration, there is a whole medicinal side that takes shape. Camphor, braid. It is delicate and complex.
    • Taste
      94 94
      In the mouth it is round, oily, and sublime.
      The fruit is wrapped in milk chocolate.
      In addition to the exotic (passion, mango, pineapple), we also have berries (blackcurrant), red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) and a little side of mom's jam.
      The wood is very delicate. We have a little cold ash, a nice sea breeze, and a little anise.
    • Finish
      95 95
      The finish is long, powerful for the alcohol level.
      Licorice, burnt wood, grapefruit, pomegranate. fresh mint.
      It's more animal and adds a whole dimension to the dram, recalling its origins.

    Bowmore 38y 1966/2004, 42.8%, DT Peerless, cask 3303, 179 bottles
    Nose: tropical fruit. Taste: tropical fruit. Finish: tropical fruit. Voila, have seldom easier to describe a whisky. One-sided, little complex, not too fascinating. But it has to be said: this is oh so superior one-sided, oh so superior fruity. A succulent tropical fruit salad in the nose and on taste. Dominiek made a rather lively performance of a lascivious lady in a straw skirt that is already carrying a large basket of fruit on her head, hip-hopping. Unfortunately, words in this interest do not say as much as images. Burned images on the retina. Now, of course there is something more to see than the mango, the passion fruit, the papaya, the pineapple and the grapefruit. On the nose I also had blossoms, chamomile and butter. A little bit of salt on the tongue too. And almost no wood. Nor smoke. This cuts in so easily, you really do not have the idea to drink something - still - 43%. After the tasting I had this on 95/100, but still had something left. After rehearsing the day after I finish it. He is great, but the line-up was a bit misleading. The lack of complexity and evolution, which Glenfarclas - excess - did, is missing here. The Bowmore Bouquet is the incarnation of the best of both worlds: the best that Bowmore 1966 has to offer in a supreme complexity. 94/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/06/10/fulldram-supertasting-2/
