    nice dram
    • Nose
      soft and varied, very complex and wonderfully harmonious, the smoke only as an undertone
    • Taste
      great and fruity Bowmore, the smoke takes a long time to get through, barely maritime, some absolutely tanin free oak
    • Finish
      long and wide, lots of fruit, wood and beautiful warm smoke

    This one needs aeration and a few drops of water to develop some nice aroma. A very good selection.

    Tasting note from october 2017.
    • Nose
      Earthy peat, camphor and other medicinal notes, wet underwoods. Mineral and lightly coastal. Quite austere. With aeration, hints of vanilla, more underwood with a few mushrooms.
    • Taste
      Round. Peat, salt, grapefruits and spices. Quite austere again and I like it. With water, it becomes slightly mineral and more citrusy with grapefruits again and lemon. Tasty.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, citrusy.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/islay-blind-tasting-ein-sixpack-von-unserer-lieblingsinsel-34621/ Color: corn yellow
    Nose: Fruity plum and cherry compote with a salty spice, some glue and cinnamon as well as lemon extract and peat-containing smoke.
    Taste: Torfig-dull entrance. Honey, vanilla and heavy herbal notes with a tart and oily-bitter essence towards the finish. Very salty throughout.
    Finish: Medium length - peaty herbal dressing with slightly sprittigen notes and hints of fruity-sweet fruit character of the nose.
    87 points (nose: 88 / taste: 89 / finish: 85)

    Come on Luc & Thomas, launch a few more of these, for old times
    • Nose
      The nose is warm and spicy. Mild peat and brine, but mostly sweet
      berries. Currants, gooseberries, blackberries. You get the pictures. But also
      quite a bit of pomegranate. No, wait, make that baked apples, sprinkled with
      cinnamon. This is indeed an amazing nose!
    • Taste
      Sturdy attack, but what did you expect with this alcohol percentage? It
      is creamy and rounded, allowing the sweet and salt to battle for supremacy.
      Whatever the outcome, the taster is the winner. Some vanilla and honey join the
      fray. The peat remains discreet. Heavy on the spices.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and heart warming. The battle between sweet and salt
      rages on.

  7. MacMenM did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    great fruitiness
    • Nose
      heather, some light smoke, suggestion of exotic fruit (pine apple ?)
    • Taste
      creamy and smoothy, again the same flavour as on the nose
    • Finish
      long, long

    A malt that needs time, and a little water, to express its full potential. We are far from the immediate pleasure of other Islays, but who will be able to stop there will be able to derive a lot of pleasure.
    • Nose
      Alcoholic at the first nose, it is first medicinal (camphorated alcohol) before turning to aromas of grapefruit, then to an earthy peat, quite fine, but evoking more wet undergrowth (moss) than the sea air . It is also quite mineral. An austere nose, not easy, not immediate, but that takes a good dimension to the analysis. The aeration sees the appearance of a bit of vanilla, vaguely mentholated notes, a hint of pear brandy and finally, finally!, The salty freshness of a sea breeze. The addition of water brings out the vanilla and citrus acidity (grapefruit, but also lemon).
    • Taste
      Explosive, the alcohol is felt. Despite this, nice fruity and tangy flavors are already visible, as well as a fine and delicate peat. The second sip is already better tamed, grapefruit, iodine. It's good this thing. Let's add a little fleet. Yes, the water releases the aromas, the minerality of the nose is found in the mouth, and the sweetness of the vanilla is more present and mixes with citrus (lemon, grapefruit always). A hint of exoticism perhaps, but nothing predominant. The profile is really that of an Islay when they play finesse rather than fat peat.
    • Finish
      Long, on the bitterness of the gentian and the fine peat, before a return of the acidity of the lemon.

  10. magic_slim scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Excellent Bowmore, definitely one of the better ones distilled in the 90s.
    • Nose
      Warming and fresh with an alcoholic tingling, but also aromatic with notes of fudge (vanilla/caramel) and pastry. Slightly peaty and hints of apples. All pleasant.
    • Taste
      Bold, rich and spicy with notes of peat-smoke, salt, pepper and caramel. Butter-creme cake as "Silent Still" writes is a very good description as well.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasant with a salty end.
