Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1968 DT
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.00 points
- Very good typical 60s bowmore with lots of tropical fruits, pear, quince papaya, the palate has some nice grapefruit notes a la bouquet. The finish is medium and very much on orchard fruits
- A very nice old Bowmore. It's all about fruit instead of peat. That is what I like. May be just a litte too thin to score in the mid 90's points.
The typical Bowmore 1960's nose of cat-piss intermingled with tropical fruit of pineapple, kiwi and lychee. Mango and passion fruit sweets. Vanilla. Hints of crème caramel and a whiff of smoke. This profile is unique and so delicious.
Now more on pear, blood oranges and tangerines. Orange peel. Quit a lot of pink grapefruit bitterness as well. Some pear, papaya and lemon. Sandalwood. Faint mineral notes. Peat at the background. Fragile but complex.
Medium long. Gentle spiciness of white pepper and nutmeg. A little ginger. Grapefruit bitterness again and a bit of mint. Still well balanced.
- A non typical but extraordinary Bowmore.
Lots of fruit, Apples, Pears, Apricots all mixed with a light nose of wet leather and oil. Tere is a bit of oak and a light peaty coastal tone in the background
Enters light and sweet with vanilla and light fruits. Then suddenly a bit of of charcoal smoke. Then light and pleasant peppery spices appears
Medium long, starts with fading spices and fades out in a well balanced taste of oak and wood
