    The layers which this whisky starts to reveal over time is something incredible and my first time trying Bowmore from the 60's, first thing up on the nose in that unmistakable aroma of pineapples, guava and even a hint of raw mango's. On the palate the explosion of flavors keep going and the longer you hold it on the palate the more you are rewarded. Wow!

  5. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    It’s a great dram but I was disappointed not to find any tropical notes there and also maybe lacking a bit of abv

  6. The Macallan scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Sampled this one in Denmark at the Whisky Messen 2003.

    N: sweet smoke, fresh briny notes, some sugary sweetness

    P: Round, sticky (oily), nutty flavors with a touch of sweet almonds

    F: Light start, but with some lovely smoky toasted nutty flavors and some caramalised salted nuts.

    C: A great oppurtunity this was, didn't cost me that much extra to pay in those days.
