5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.95 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample. Recognisable as a Bowmore despite the sherry.
    Fresher than the 15 YO Darkest OB.
    • Nose
      Dried berries, candy cane, raspberry and malt. A little peat and salt.
    • Taste
      Marshmallow, white pepper, vanilla sugar, orange, salt, gentle dusty peat and chocolate.
    • Finish
      Now the peat heavily comes forward. Furthermore mocha, toffee and blueberry.

  2. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    It's rather nice, but a bit young. Do you make me the same for the same price in 100% PX and twice as old?
    • Nose
      Introduction on the fruit cake. Who wants cake again?
      A little candied fruit, iodine and some smoky notes.
    • Taste
      The first attack in the mouth is sweet, but it leaves few aromas. A bit of bitterness on the end.
    • Finish
      The youth is felt, through a lot of "greenness". Still candied notes and raisins.

    compared with Bowmore 1995 JW Wanted - The Loving Brothers

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This is a very decent dessert dram, quite complex of its age. I could do
    with a good cigar when enjoying this (something I do not often do).
    • Nose
      On the nose I get the obligatory coastal traits (salt, seaweeds and even
      some grilled scallops), a perfect dose of peat and wonderful sweet tones of
      dried fruit. Prunes, but also figs and the like. And dark chocolate, dry sherry
      and caramelized oranges. A spoonful of candid sugar, quite a bit of
      butterscotch and mildly spiced with nutmeg. Nice balance.
    • Taste
      On the palate, which is feisty and creamy, it is the sweet side that
      takes the lead. Again dried and candid fruit (primarily oranges) and a
      truckload of caramel and brown sugar. The PX is overpowering the Bowmore a bit,
      but this is not criticism.
    • Finish
      I get some hints of cappuccino, with whipped cream, in the sweet and
      lingering finish.

    If sugar makes the first sips easy to drink, it quickly becomes disgusting. Too bad, the rest was promising.
    • Nose
      a little too marked by the alcohol that masks the aromas. In the background, we detect expected marine aromas: peat, salt, shellfish, all mixed with dried fruits and sherry spices.
    • Taste
      Dry enough, the wood is present, many oranges candied but mostly caramel and brown sugar, too much sugar. By cons alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and quickly stinking.
