  4. Ostap scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Deep, sequential, perfect whisky. With a pleasant palette of flavors and flavors. A very successful game of sherry barrels creates a sizable herring cut, not a sherry monster.
    • Nose
      Pectusine, apples, ash, charcoal, sherry, iodine, salted, apple-pear jam, berries, needles, juniper, lemon, black chocolate, raisins, marmalade, smoked peat, marzipan, fatty dried fish, dried apricots, white pepper , passion fruit berries. At first, a rather delicate aroma, over time, is more intense than sherry nuances.
    • Taste
      Very delicious, butter, smoke, ash, a lot of raisins, chocolate, pepper, dark fruits, sherry, salted meat.
    • Finish
      Intensively growing, smoky, ash, oily, oak, salty, pepper, fish on a grill, medium duration.

  9. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A rich, fruity old-school Bowmore. Lovely thick sweetness and fruitiness
    are perfectly balanced with coastal and herbal notes, superbly coated
    with wood smoke. Strong, intense and overwelming. A multi-layered, fine
    and full-bodied character. Another excellent example of the perfect
    harmony of Bowmore with sherry.

    • Nose
      Deep and rich. Sherry flavours nicely intermingle with plums, dried
      cherries, orange marmalade, sweet prunes, and liquorice. Briny notes are
      present with hints of tar and rubber, covered by subtle wood smoke.
      Sweet aromas of toffee, malted barley and dark chocolate emerge, lovely
      lingering with hints of eucalyptus and a whiff of florals in the back.
    • Taste
      Deliciously sweet start on the palate with sherry, dates, prunes and
      raisins. This is complemented by an intense warming spiciness of oak,
      cinnamon and nutmeg. Wood smoke and tar-like flavours arrive, perfectly
      balanced with lovely herbal and medicinal notes, kind of cough syrup.
      Sweet and fruity again with luscious oranges, dark berries, liquorice
      and a briny edge with a whiff of ozone towards the finish. Lovely
      savoury!
    • Finish
      The finish is very long, sweet with dried dark fruit, liquorice, and
      herbal cough syrup. Slightly drying, with some astringency, leading to a
      smoky and subtle salty end. Perfect!

      WITH WATER: There's more
      yellow fruits coming through with a splash of water. Citrus and toffee
      nicely mingle with sherry and lovely wood smoke on the nose. Water
      significantly increases the sweetness on the palate with toffee and
      fruits, supported by prickling spiced oak on the tongue. The finish is
      very long, sweet and creamy with tender wood smoke on the tail.
