Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1965

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.92 points

  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Bowmore - 1965 - OB, Soffiantino Import, Islay Pure Malt, Sherry casks - 50%
    Colour:
    Full gold with amber stitch
    Nose:
    Sparkling-salty-fruity! Here dominate dark fruit flavors of elderberry, plum and wild berry. Add to that tobacco, leather, humidor, black peppercorns, a cocooning campfire in maritime sea air and sweet nut liqueur. Honey but also slightly dusty notes from old books, as well as earth, forest soil and green shrubs. What should one say? old Bowmore stop !!
    Taste:
    Spicy and dominant. Tobacco, smoke, fruits, leather, balsamic, peppers, chili, herbs, wood provided with spices of all kinds - just fantastic !! In addition, different teenagers of the finest quality combined with mint, hints of eucalyptus and a little oak. Top class !!
    Finish:
    Long - fresh and spicy all the time. Earthy notes, salty smoke, peat, dark fruits, delicious honey, wax, tea, wood and mint. With a great reverberation, he then pulls away.
    Comment:
    A great old Bowmore who has many parallels to the 64er Bicentenary, even if it was a bit better for us ... with 43%!

  2. jay83 scored this whisky 96 points Expert Junior

    In my opinion outdoing a lot of highly praised Bowmore bottlings of the Mid-60ies, altough not combined with a wooden box ;-)

  3. Liberezlatourbe scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very evolutive nose, complex and complete with this game of ping-pong incessant even if the opening sates the two main markers. A rather disconcerting dram but so good, I found the final less interesting. Too bad, because he clearly deserved a 90+
    Tasted blind
    • Nose
      Very peaty sherry, subtle marriage between the 2 markers. At rest, none supplants the other. In the opening sherry, with its notes of prunes and dried fruits, takes precedence, however the peat and notes of vegetables and sulfur are never far away. On long inspirations, it looks like a game of table tennis. A sherry forehand dismissed by a peaty reverse. Peat is difficult to classify. It is neither marine nor pharmaceutical, but a mixed plant and farmer. The opening dries all, the dried fruits become roasted. Peat becomes more present with a vegetal freshness. The second nose is more sherry, a nice lemony freshness and lighter notes. White fruit and still the veil of peat but this time more saline.
    • Taste
      Tannic notes at the beginning of the mouth, roasted dried fruits, yellow fruits. Marine peat. A clever mix of sweet and savory with a beautiful texture. Richness, power and warmth are the main characteristics of this excellent beverage. Bitterness, some woody notes. Beautiful spicy heat. Diluted, exotic fruits mango and passion are more massive.
    • Finish
      Medium + with a good persistence on tannins, salty peat, spices.
