  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

    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.
    • Nose
      Oak Wood, Peat smoke, Tar, Spearmint.
    • Taste
      Sweet and Clean. Vanilla, Dry with a big peat smoke comining in.
    • Finish
      Long and smokey. Pepper and Spice. Warming and moorish

  6. Edwin de Lange scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A Fresh and noticable young Bowmore, not to peaty.
