Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1973

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.14 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    What moment ! It's hard to say, but maybe the best whisky I've ever tasted. Enthusiasm 5/5 (and even more?) Whisky n ° 1468
    • Nose
      OH MY GOD ! Crème brûlée, honey and varnish, BUT BY TRUCK OF 38 TONNES! Waxed wood, generous fruits that complete the panorama. With a few drops of water - let's go soft - toffee, burnt wood, a milky side. What a slap! And I have not put anything in the mouth yet.
    • Taste
      Honey and spices collide! (For lack of a better verb, not that one tries to take precedence over the other, but it is a true explosion of flavors) Everything remains of a great softness but with a relief at the same time unbelievable. Micro-trace of peat.
    • Finish
      The sweet spices sparkle ... explode IN A FOUGH OF FIRE OF ARTIFICE seems to me more just, on reflection! With abundant fruits, which turn out to be completely exotic with a few drops of water. A lot of vanilla in the length.
      The peat comes back only when the glass rinses, on the nose.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2002]  I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Rolandsbogen. In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 92,5. 
    My notes state an average blonde colour and no legs but a lot of late tears (oily texture at the glass).  The nose is very fruity (pears, currants and many more).  The mouthfeel is oily and creamy.  The body is sweet and fruity again with some spices added (peppers).  With water it gets even more balanced and smoother.  The finish is long and beautiful.
