  1. herby.usa scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    A previously unknown bottler.
    But: The choice of barrel, the age - and of course, the year of distillation promise a well balanced Bowmore.

    Tasting result: class Bowmore (no violets) but old school Bowmore recognizable.

    In the glass you can see wonderfully how the feet make their way. Certainly creamy / oily in the mouth.
    • Nose
      89 89
      First, coffee aromas rise in the nose.
      Citrus and salty sea breezes are added.
      Sweet vanilla (candied fruit) and a hint of smoke alternate.
      The alcohol is wonderfully integrated.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Tingling in the mouth. Soft, creamy with time.
      Interplay of sweet and light saltiness, citrus fruits, vanilla, "Bowmore" smoke (but very subtle).
      I feel a slight metallic touch (I like that; my co-buttons don't have it); like to call it steam aroma (unfortunately no violet aromas).
      Later, a dark / sweet coffee aroma is added, which also stays in the back of the throat for a long time.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long and pleasant. Coffee, saltiness / sweetness persist.
