  1. whiskytheo did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This is a whisky from the old school.
    • Nose
      Fruity, with sea influences.
    • Taste
      Very fresh and nicely full of fruit, typical salty influences and charcoal.
    • Finish
      Medium dead long.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Great cask selection. Thanks, Jeroen, for the sample.
    • Nose
      I get the typical maritime Bowmore notes on the nose, accompanied by a
      load of citrus, vanilla and light touches of peach. Some camphor and salt.
      Seaweeds too. Wave breakers. Fairly sweet and quite attractive. Almost no peat
      to speak off on the nose.
    • Taste
      It is very feisty and creamy and initially a lot more sweeter than
      expeceted. Very fruity start. Guess the sherry cask was not as tired as I
      thought. It then turns very salty. Slightly smoky. Nice development. Light oak.
      Good balance. Does not need water.
    • Finish
      The long finish is soft and spicy, with a brackish, but wonderfully
      smoky death.
