  1. GlenSikkes scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This Adelphi Bowmore 1998 12 years old is a fireworks party or a sea battle caught on the wind. This is all balance out with some nice sherry notes. Excellent.

    From a refill Sherry butt.

    Tasting Notes and Comments by Adelphi
    • Nose
      Burnt, buttered toast with kippers followed by chocolate Hob Nobs, oiler leather, Butterkist popcorn, molasses toffee, liniment, figs, (possibly fig rolls), and dried apricots.
    • Taste
      A lovely, oily texture, gunpowder, cordite, and a salty, burnt toffee to finish. Swan Vesta matches with a lively Oloroso sherried notes taking over and a soft, smooth texture.
    • Finish
      A hit finish which is bother peppery and smoky with lingering oils and more cordite - fireworks.

    In a blind tasting wouldn't have recognized this as a Bowmore.

    Great stuff, can even be sipped neat.

    I think it's a great one, though the alcohol is overwhelming in the first place, give it a little time or add a few drops of water.

    The single casks like these are hard to find today!

    to drink quite well
    despite the slight violet oil note
    • Nose
      dark chocolate, nutty, wood, orange and some dark fruit,
      Camphor, carnation
    • Taste
      soft start,
      then comes my violet note
      Chocolate, some fruit
      the violet oil sticks to the palate
    • Finish
      long
      a lot of dry chocolate
      some violet oil on the palate,
      some citrus
      the violet oil keeps coming back
      the chocolate is dominant now with malt sweetness
