  1. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [October, 1997]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 82,5.  My notes state that it improves with some drops of water added (gets smoother and more balanced).  Without water I scored it 75 points only.

    yar me matey, this be an aptly named whisky. I feel like a salty seadog sipping away at this drammy dram.  Hand over yer liquid booty 'fore I unleash me rapier on yer slimey bollucks.  Not the best Bowmore, but still, t'is probably far better than the crummy rum most real pirates be sipping down back in them there days of yore.

    Colour/nose: Copper and gold;the body is medium and very smooth :-)

    The taste has a wonderful oak taste and is beautiful malty, accompanied by sweet/fruity flavours with overlying peaty tones and quite some lemon!.

    The finish is perfectly smooth and mellow! That's the way I like it!

    Thank you very much, Victor!
