  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    Huge tropical fruits and sherry, masterpiece

  2. watson0209 scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    A whisky in a class of its own. Nice old sherry, marzipan with a very fine smoke (barely noticeable). Perfect!!

  3. macwhisky scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    A grandiose OA more reminiscent of the Bicentenary than the whole DT and HB from 1966. By the 50% a much longer reverberation as in the Independent by 40 to 43%. Nice that I could have the more than 1x in the glass!

    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%!

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