  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    that's whisky, which is why I drink whisky. A lot to discover, complex, full of character.
    • Nose
      Immediately Bowmore, a little floral, then maritime, then a little peat, but also nice sherry flavors that are always present, but not in the foreground, a little oily linen, smells a bit of a fishing boat, with a sweeter edge that matches the Time takes the helm and allows the smoky, oily to take a back seat. The second nose takes on a little the acidity of the aroma, refreshing citrus that suddenly wants to play in the front row.
    • Taste
      Suddenly violent start, immediately bitter notes, sherry barrel, oak, a little perfumed Bowmore-typically floral, a slight acidity that adds refreshing notes to the whisky, in the background, always present, never dominating the relatively light, but typical Bowmore peat.
    • Finish
      long, slightly salty, peaty, maritime, leather, tobacco, the fishing boat looks over again, the sherry notes and the tart oak are there, all woven and pleasant, yet spicy.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great whisky, the 70+ Euro he was worth more than once to me, today a nice memory.
    • Nose
      very pleasant, spicy-dry smoke, no stinging, burnt sugar, lightly baked sponge cake ... some cinnamon, hints of sweet fruitiness (orange / cherry jam), but it also stays in the background with a few drops of water
    • Taste
      hui, despite dilution peffert the very nice, smoke, ash, floral, bitter ... first bite through ... a lot of dark chocolate ... only after several sips the fruit comes through, a bit dark-juicy-berry (cherry? blackberry? currant ?), subtle and tart
    • Finish
      long ... smoky dark chocolate with pepper and violet flavor ... and a very dry mouthfeel

  5. Bowmore Axel scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This 16-piece Bowmore 1990 from the sherry barrel is located
    just behind its predecessor, the 16 from 1989.
    The sherry barrels have it less sweet but more
    woody - made bitter. Still a very fine malt.

    Tasted in 700ml.

    Atrocious. On the soap. Bottle wasted.
    • Nose
      Slight sulfur. Dried fruits. Almond, Turkish delight, violet. A touch of soap.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is rubber, a little soap.
      Very floral.i
      It's really wasted.
    • Finish
      Final on soap, violet ...
