    Bowmore is almost always nice. This is no exception. You are left with a lovely tang in the mouth for hours. I gave this Bowmore 83 marks.

      Oak Wood, Peat smoke, Tar, Spearmint.
    • Taste
      Sweet and Clean. Vanilla, Dry with a big peat smoke comining in.

    • Nose
      Pungent saltiness, sea notes, peat and a pleasant fern-like sweetness.
    • Taste
      Torfig-salty onset, a hint of citrus and light sweetness.
    • Finish
      Salty and quite short.

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A slightly sharp body.
    • Nose
      Firm, peaty, smoky, very appetizing.
    • Taste
      Very singular flavours, deftly balanced: a touch of iron, leafy, ferny,peaty.Underlying earthy sweetness.
    • Finish
      Sweet then salty.

  5. Hemdl scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Lightweight, uncomplicated Bowmore the entry-level range. Significantly bottled too weak and therefore more suitable for beginners, a complex miracle paint should not be expected. Nevertheless, an "easy drinking" Malt, which I really like, unless the claims are not set too high.
    • Nose
      The typical Bowmore smoke, paired with citrus notes and some honey. Behind it light oak. Relatively light and uncomplicated, but not unpleasant.
    • Taste
      Also on the tongue very light and mild, almost watery. He could have tolerated a few percentage points more. In addition, but again the slight smoke with the citrusy echoes and subtle oak. Somewhat dull.
    • Finish
      Here is a different picture. The smoke now stronger and more dominant, this goes directly into a slight dryness. It remains a dry mouth, the Malt quickly disappears from the tongue and palate. Again, the low volume percent make themselves felt

    A Fresh and noticable young Bowmore, not to peaty.
