  1. PuddingmitHaut did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    (Blind tasting)
    Very pleasant, not too complex malt to enjoy without being too big.
    • Nose
      In the nose quite fine and not particularly intense. Vanilla, tangerines with a few spices and also herbal. Will always vanilla over time. Nice.
    • Taste
      Very similar in taste, with a velvety soft mouthfeel. Again, the vanilla is dominant.
    • Finish
      Goes down like butter. The vanilla taste remains beautifully soft with a little spice and a little light fruit.

    Colour: dark amber
    Nose: delicate peated smoke, chocolate, dried fruits, ripe fruits, christmas cake, vanilla and citrus.
    Mouth: sweet, dried fruits, dryness, dust, pepper, peated smoke, citrus.
    Finish: long, spices, peated smoke, grass, vanilla, pepper, dried fruits and coffee.
    Bowmore 100 proof has a very good balance between delicate peated smoke and sweetness with citrus.

    a sulfur note
    which smells in the nose much like the tanine in yew and juniper

    still noticeable in the mouth
    (herbes de provence)

    in the finish as a slight bitterness

    Needs water to develop fully and positively. Sometimes it would just be better to dilute it, but the market is crying out for more powerful cask strength.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Salty sea air, spicy earth, oak, if you treat it to water, a suitable sweetness sloshes over and even displaces the salty sea air - balanced.
    • Taste
      86 86
      There is already a lot of alcohol there, that's why, but that's not the only reason why water is good for him. Then there is more sweetness, sherry, oak, spice, but everything is very strong.
