Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1995 DD
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.60 points
Dark cherry, oak, citrus and only then the peat. After a while some peach and the typical Bowmore maltiness. Eventually also lighter oloroso notes like cranberry, raspberry and plum.
Cherry and prune. Peat and pepper. Some toffee as well.
Now the peat wins. Quite peppery still as well. Also cranberry and cherry.
- Thanks to Tomy for this beautiful discovery.
A nice Bowmore, maybe a little dry in the mouth, but very well done.
Finely peated with lemony touches. It looks a bit like Bunna Toiteach! There is little green fruit and undergrowth.
Ah! And here it is sherry, with chocolate, candied notes, a little sugar. The whole is quite fat, with notes of pears. We find a little bitterness.
Powerful and persistent, with more smoke, sugar, vanilla and candied citrus.
- Very fresh and slightly peaty / smoky nose. Some notes of citrus.
The second nose is quite vegetal.
mouth, peat spring a little and citrus. We feel the
sherry coming in the background with an iodine print that encompasses
all that. It is mineral, a little dry but well built.
The final, medium length, lingers on a fruity freshness and a hint of smoke that persists over time.
A very good whisky!
Sweet peat smoke. Fresh blood orange peels. Green apple pie. Wet beach sand. Sweet pipe tobacco. Raisin bread.
Sweet, salty, and peaty (all in nice balance). Licorice root. Toast. Salted bitter nuts. More of that blood orange.
Long and spicy (more licorice and some eucalyptus). Peat smoke and lingering sweetness.
Oscillates between a marine profile, salty, slightly iodized, a fine chocolate peat and discrete aromas typified sherry. Brown sugar, red fruits, raisins.
Sweet, peaty, chocolatey. Light spicy.
Go through several phases, a warm peat side, chocolate, mocha then softened, rounded even with candied red berries. Persistent bitterness
- An excellent sea sherry, very well balanced.
A well-mastered blend of sherry aromas and the typical seaside side of the Bowmore: a fresh and fruity side (oranges, apples), sweetness (hands less than the Bowmore darkest) as well as nuts and chocolate and a side marked by the salt and peat.
In the prolongation of the nose: the orange dominates the other fruits, but it is well balanced with the salt and a vegetable peat.
Very long, not really aromas and more.
