    Part of a vintage tasting.
    Uhhh...is this for real? This is outstanding, out of this world quality, SENSATIONAL stuff! What initially begins as almost liquid basil(and yes that is positive), ends up being perfectly integrated as a whole. This is without the shadow of a doubt one of the most intense and complex whiskies I’ve ever had. There is so much room for every aspect of the palate! Several kinds of Fruits, herbs, spices, wood influences and a lot more. You’d only believe it if you tried it. From start to finish this is absolutely sensational.

    Brown sugar nectar, ripe oranges, a little wax, dry prunes, dark boiled tea, custard cream, salty water.
    Boiled canned fruit, full-bodied spicy red wine, dry prunes, plum jam, and caramel sauce for the finish.

    A solid Sherry Cask speyside malt with few negatives on the Sherry Cask.
    An interesting whisky with a strong fruity taste and a spicy complexity, with a rich taste like brown sugar and caramel.

    What is this? A Bowmore without any peat and/or smoky flavors? In my experience Bowmore is always related to peat-smoke. Not this one. It must have been the 37 years in the barrel. What is left is a refined and beautiful whisky, although I did not get all the flavors from this whisky as my friends did.

    Wow, this is the best whisky I’ve ever tasted. It’s remarkable how much room there is for the fruits to shine and at the same time being in perfect balance with the wood. The body of this Bowmore is astonishing given the 40,5% and the flavor evolution in the mouth just keeps on going. The finish lets you sit down with elegance, class and more. So much more.

    Smell / taste: unbelievably great fruit notes, for me mango and ripe mandarins, maybe canned mandarins. The low alcohol content is barely noticeable, so mouth-filling are the fruit flavors - great!

    The nose is world class, the taste can not quite keep up. Nevertheless, an unforgettable malt.
    • Nose
      Ripe exotic fruits, incredible cocktail, these '68 Bowmore are simply unique and not substitutable 98/100
    • Taste
      Sweet, due to the rather low alcohol content (40.5%) unfortunately a bit weak. 93/100
    • Finish
      At best medium long, exotic fruit on the palate - very satisfactory.
