Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1965 It

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.00 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    A non-typical old Bowmore with more peats and less fruits. Well interplay between sherry and peat, a winner!
    • Nose
      Leather, an old factory, old style peat, gasoline, dirty machines, iodine. Very winey, fermented dark fruits, tannins
    • Taste
      Salty, leathery, well peat-sherry integration, sweet
    • Finish
      Rice wine texture, very elegant, still some iodine.

    Nice weight and strength but not a powerhose Bowmore and more woody than fruity.

    Still very good
    • Nose
      Toffee, caramel and fruit tightly combined, just faint hint of very mature cheese, a little light polish, varnished wood, caramel biscuits.
    • Taste
      There is quite a tangy fruit mixed in with some toffee and slightly bitter coffee, I also get a little orange & chocolate liqueur.

      Peat is here bit of what I would call approaching medium weight.

      It is quite drying which surprises me, faint hints of almond tart, a little raspberry, finally something a little nutty?
    • Finish
      Long fruity and slightly woody

  4. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Lots to discover in this multi-layered old Bowmore. But to be honest, not the absolute stunner I had expected beforehand.
    • Nose
      Not the tropical fruit I expected. This one is more on dark fruits of blue berries, blackcurrants and gooseberries. Not that I'm complaining:-). Toasted almonds. Hints of black coffee. Some leathery notes. A little eucalyptus as well.
    • Taste
      Bitter-sweetness of grapefruit, papaya and blood oranges. Followed by dark chocolate and raisins. Cedar wood. Sherry and peat influences are well intermingled with each other. Later on also strawberry jam. Cinnamon and caraway.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Quite dry. A little pepper. Pine. Liquorice at the end.
