Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1970

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.18 points

  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Quite fruity, not so much on tropical fruits as I thought it would be but more or less the same profile as 1971 and 1972 21yo, a bit metallic

    Nose: Fruity berries, papaya, mango, passion fruit and carambola (star fruit) in creamy cream, as well as aromas of leather, wet earth, caramel, tea and charcoal smoke. But also grated orange peel, lime slices and bay leaves in maritime spice, underlaid with fresh mint.
    Taste: Rather filigree structure, but 100 percent present from the first second. Sweet honey, caramel, toffee, full spice in dark, peat-filled smoke and only provided with a delicate fruity note. Chocolate (pudding), some wood and fresh mint.
    Finish: Medium to long - with plenty of spice and fresh moments in a creamy mouthfeel. Oak, leather, chocolate, caramel, honey, mint and peaty smoke linger on the tongue.
    Comment: Already a classic! Minutes later, the peat board sticks to the tongue.
    93 points (nose: 94 / taste: 93 / finish: 93)
