  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Second pass on this magnificent bowmore after a few months of opening.
    Always sublime, maybe even more.
    This nose is a marvel. There is so much in it is impressive.
    • Nose
      Superb. A lot of fruits.
      Citrus before anything else. Grapefruit, bergamot, yuzu. Mango, papaya, rhubarb.
      Passion fruit, mango. Superb acidity.
      Melon, wood, vanilla, milk chocolate.
      Beautiful woody, clove, leather, mint, light camphor. Black pepper.
      What complexity.
    • Taste
      On the palate, continue on the fruit salad: apricot, peach, mango, passion, melon, orange, tangerine.
      White flower, black pepper, superb woody. Light leather, dark chocolate, hazelnut. Almond.
    • Finish
      Sublime finale on camphor, exoticism, mango, papaya, passion, peach, orange.

    A very exotic fruity bowmore, the nose is particularly impressive on papaya , mango pineapple and even a bit of puh er tea very nice.

  4. sagara-kun scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    A nice fruit cocktail.
    The only complaint would be that it's a little too "sweet".
    • Nose
      93 93
      Wow what energy and what fruits!
      Yet we are only at 42.5%.

      A touch of butter, exotic fruit (dragon fruit, papaya, passion, mango, pineapple), rhubarb, lemon. White flower. Black pepper.
      A hint of woodland and peat.
    • Taste
      93 93
      In the mouth we stay on the beautiful fruit salad.
      Exotic and citrus always, as on the nose, but also white fruits (apple, pear). In jelly.
      A little leather. Honey,
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long finish on honey, pepper and especially fruits.
      A delight.

    Fruit do you want it here! The nose lacks a little power but the mouth catches up well at this level. The palace is very classy and very expressive. Tasted blind.
    • Nose
      Light at first, with pears, apples, a little wax, mint. Herbal. Slightly woody and spicy (nutmeg, light pepper).
    • Taste
      Fruits ! Peaches, apricots, but also more exotic things like pineapple, passion fruit. A woody presence just enough, a beautiful creamy texture, covering, honeyed, which is a bit like an Irishman. A little tobacco, hazelnuts, flowers. A very light peat, a little past, a little "old tire".
    • Finish
      Long, on cooked fruits and La Vosgienne sweets.
