Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1968 DT

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.08 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    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.
    • Nose
      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. 
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Gentle spiciness of white pepper and nutmeg. A little ginger. Grapefruit bitterness again and a bit of mint. Still well balanced.

  2. Sonett scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A non typical but extraordinary Bowmore.
    • Nose
      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
    • Taste
      Enters light and sweet with vanilla and light fruits. Then suddenly a bit of of charcoal smoke. Then light and pleasant peppery spices appears
    • Finish
      Medium long, starts with fading spices and fades out in a well balanced taste of oak and wood
