  1. ThorstenH scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I am surprised by this 10 year old bottling. Bowmore with Aston Martin machine oil, a great nose.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Campfire, bacon, with the typical Bowmore orange, pretzel sticks.
    • Taste
      85 85
      a shame, unfortunately a little more depth is missing here. Feels a little empty. Can't keep up with his nose. Possibly due to the age.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Rather short finish.

    Quite drinkable but nothing special and why the hell "Dark & Intense"?....the stuff is colored.

  3. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice but flawed. A strange soupy aftertaste, find it only on the second try
    • Nose
      88 88
      Vanilla pudding, cherry, smoked bacon, orange zest, campfire smoke, salt
    • Taste
      84 84
      Light body. Very sweet, dark sherry smoke, heavy burned wood, vanilla creme and cherry syrup
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium, sweet, chared wood smoke, brown sugar, cherry syrup, coffee-like, chocolate powder. A strange soupy aftertaste

  4. MaroFF scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I am a supporter and fan of Bowmore. This whisky, despite its young age, is very correct and well-balanced.
    Sweet, aromatic, fruity with beautifully blended smoky and peat ingredients.
    I am glad that I could try it, and even more so that I can do it every now and then by buying the whole bottle, not a sample.
    • Nose
      87 87
      very clear, sweet, vanilla, biscuits, crumble on yeast dough, plum jam, raisins, peat, grapefruit, roasted gum
    • Taste
      88 88
      delicate, creamy, quite sweet, bitter orange, grapefruit, raisins, chocolate, traces of oak, peat and smoke at the end
    • Finish
      88 88
      long, pleasant, slightly salty, at the same time sugar, vanilla, smoke and pleasant honey-bitter aftertaste with notes of grapefruit.

  6. Eigerle scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    In contrast to the "normal" 10-pack Dark&Intense, significantly better barrels were used. It is therefore not a "high flyer", but it is solidly made and gives the connoisseur pleasant impressions. It's nice that it ends mildly and sweetly again at the end.
