Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1996 BR

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.67 points

  1. barryfox915 scored this whisky 67 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Clear to pale yellow
    Nose: Extremely sweet (candy) and smooth, new
    make-like, very clean, peaty and grassy.
    Taste: Extremely sweet, thin, some
    peat and dried kelp. Finish is short, very clean, with some cereals and
    extremely sweet.
    General Impression: The colour matches the content: very
    new-make like, very sweet and clean and shows a maturity closer to 10 months
    than 10 years.

  2. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Judging by the colour (pale straw),has obviously not gained from the cask. Has got all the phenolic spectrum but not much more,especially on the nose.
    • Nose
      Phenolic. Creosote. Smoky. Obviously coastly. Not much behind the smoke. A distant touch of vanilla maybe.
    • Taste
      Sweet. Malty. Cereal bowl. Gets drier and smokier.
    • Finish
      Smoky,dry,sooty
