Whisky Reviews for Bowmore Laimrig
39 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.51 points
- Sherry Bomb! Draping smoke. Mouth powerful, suave, velvety, corpulent, preceded by a moderate peat attack. The final envelope, encloses, carpets the palate of coffee and fat nuts. The addition of water did not bring much, if not a note of milk chocolate. Enthusiasm 4/5
- a serious rival of the Uigeadail
A beautiful medicinal sherry
- But how good is this Bowmore! The peat / sherry wedding is perfectly successful, balanced, complex. The wood is never invasive nor drying.
Sherry smoke, hmmm it smells good! I feel the smoke / navy Bowmore side; and the sherry layer comes perfectly to marry with. Leather, spray, hazelnut, tobacco ... Very strong and very complex.
Badaboum, explosion of exotic spices! Caramelized leather, candied ashes. Smoked peat arrives smoothly to become more and more present and mix with nuts and cooked blacks.
Long that lining the mouth. A lot of salt and pepper in the throat and on the tip of the tongue. Black tea is revealed, cold ashes. And always this power in the mouth.
- A harmonious whisky with dark fruit and dark chocolate
surrounded by sea, salt, iodine and smoke
is very balanced which could be boring
but it is not because he tells us his story
from his camp under the sea level
I have touched the sky
Sherry, fruit, salt, iodine, smoke, actually figs
Fruit, chocolate in throat smoke with the taste of salty sea breeze
medium long, pleasant, not very strong
salty with fruit, harmonious
- Incredible Bowmore!
For me, the perfect smoky sherry whisky!
Typical Bowmore smoke with a big cargo
Sherry influences like coffee, dark fruits and some leather.
The successor is already ready ...
Very strong 92/100
- A cheerful and cheerful mole, perhaps a bit rustic, but pleasant and leaves a positive feeling.
Dry, open, processed wood, koh-i-nor pencils, light lacquer notes, mineral and sea tones, lemon, raw grain.
Astringent, oak, pepper-ginger wave, varnish, a little smoke and coal in the background, lemon and orange peel, lollipops.
Saturated, ginger, oak bitterness, compote of sour berries, burnt biscuits, molasses
- I need it!
Thick sweet sherry, light typical Bowmore smoke, no alcohol, meaty raisins, tobacco leaves, coffee
Strong sweetness, noticeable smoke, strawberry juice, orange peel, oak spice, a bit salty, getting drier
Salinity, then oak, then smoke and then remains, thick red fruit accompany the finish
- Notes from Laimrig Batch 3 VS Batch 4 head2head
Very smokey, fat, smoke chamber, bacon, raisins, dusting sugar, strawberry candy, leather, slight copper note. (89)
Oily, sherry, earthy, smokey, coffee grounds, something a tad sour &
bitter / some ultra dark chocolate types come to mind briefly but gone
quickly again, raisins, talcum powder. (90)
more direct smoke now, also the mineral side coming through, earthy,
chocolate, slight rubber, faint blackcurrant notes, turning dry with a
touch of bitterness. (87)
- In the nose, the whisky delivers exactly what you expect from it: sherry and smoke, without one-sidedly limited to these notes. Mouth and finish are wonderful. The whisky is dark and intense and through the combination of sherry and smoke and even more beautifully layered. Despite this intensity, the whisky is dangerously pleasing and easy to drink.
Immediately a wonderful mixture of light smoke and sherry rises in the nose. In the background, vanilla caramel notes mix with it, followed by anise, sage, earth. Then it starts again: sherry and smoke. Everything fits together nicely.
A soft, creamy body, moderate onset, and then comes again Sherry accompanied with the light Bowmore smoke, chocolate between milk and dark, slightly oak, a slightly kräutrige touch and a touch of sulfur
In the finish, the smoke comes through the strongest and the oak is more present than before, the sherry steps back and the chocolate is darker. As the sherry slowly fades, the smoke and oak remain long on the palate.
