  1. Ostap scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I really rock the Bowmore style. The flavor is quite recognizable. He may not have the (aroma) lack of "volume", but after long standing, he is gaining in intensity. The degree did not taste as refined as expected. Delicious and consistent. Chic drinking.
    • Nose
      Delicate, sour smoked, malt and peat (background), berries and fruits, iodine and marine minerals, algae, lemon, some tropical fruits slip (papaya?), Camphor, delicate industrial notes (fuel oil, sleepers), rotting wood, soapy nuances , farm, pleasant berry jam with tangible acidity, baking (sweet roll), luscious green grass, dichlofos, dried apricots, mint chill (as in Czech amusement parks in childhood). It has a bunch of interesting nuances that I can't quite grasp. Absolutely not alcoholic.
    • Taste
      Smoke, ash, oily, pepper, sweet, iris, dried apricots, the same mint chill. Delicious!
    • Finish
      Sweet peat, iris, chocolate, dried apricots, cream, oak, slightly dries. And then the same touch of mint chill comes through. Medium duration.

  6. whiskytheo did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    These special bottles were intended for the Italian market. It comes with the bottle code L0 157 09:49. According to this, it is bottled on the 157th day of 2000 at the time of 09:49. So it has been sitting quite a long time in the bottle until it found its way to my whisky shelf (bought it late 2013). As said, it has a statement of the age of 8 years. It comes to an ABV of 40% and will probably be filtered chill. The color of the dram is light gold.
