  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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

  2. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    a serious rival of the Uigeadail
    • Nose
      A beautiful medicinal sherry
    • Taste
      fat, sweet
    • Finish
      long

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    But how good is this Bowmore! The peat / sherry wedding is perfectly successful, balanced, complex. The wood is never invasive nor drying.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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.

  4. ASWhisky scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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
    • Nose
      Sherry, fruit, salt, iodine, smoke, actually figs
    • Taste
      Fruit, chocolate in throat smoke with the taste of salty sea breeze
    • Finish
      medium long, pleasant, not very strong
      salty with fruit, harmonious

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Like the darkest, a little sweeter and more intense in the nose, less earthy and less bitter, but with water too. I would not know which one is better.

  6. gango4 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This Bowmore has what the Darkest lacked: power. The batch strength is good for him. That's how I imagine a Bowmore.
    • Nose
      Immediately heavy, full and round in the nose. Significant sweetness and fruits. The smoke is well integrated. With a little water slightly mineral.
    • Taste
      Strong on the tongue. Less sweet and fruity, but smokier than in the nose.
    • Finish
      When the first charge of smoke and power is through, the fruit comes forward a little better.

  7. Edward MacKenzie scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    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

  8. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A cheerful and cheerful mole, perhaps a bit rustic, but pleasant and leaves a positive feeling.
    • Nose
      Dry, open, processed wood, koh-i-nor pencils, light lacquer notes, mineral and sea tones, lemon, raw grain.
    • Taste
      Astringent, oak, pepper-ginger wave, varnish, a little smoke and coal in the background, lemon and orange peel, lollipops.
    • Finish
      Saturated, ginger, oak bitterness, compote of sour berries, burnt biscuits, molasses

  9. schero scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I need it!
    • Nose
      Thick sweet sherry, light typical Bowmore smoke, no alcohol, meaty raisins, tobacco leaves, coffee
    • Taste
      Strong sweetness, noticeable smoke, strawberry juice, orange peel, oak spice, a bit salty, getting drier
    • Finish
      Salinity, then oak, then smoke and then remains, thick red fruit accompany the finish
