Whisky reviews for Bowmore 1997 AWWC

14 users have left 15 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 89.32 points.

  1. DrOmega scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Tawny. The clearly present nose gives very sweet and soft smoke at first. In addition, sweet herbs, oranges and brown sugar. The palette gives a lot of sherry but also notes of sweet citrus and white fruit. A spicy aftertaste with a lot of sherry and sweet smoke. Nice combo of the typically sweet Bowmore smoke with PX sweetness and spices.

  14. ThorstenH scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    beautiful sweet tender smoke. Very good nose, great taste, long finish and hmmmmmmm delicious. The whole thing underlaid with the typical Bowmore oranges (some apricots). Wow ... very well balanced.

    PS. Actually, I'm no longer a fan of smoky whiskys, but this one has something.
