  2. dominikbraun scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A solid, very typical and classic Bowmore. But nothing more. The 333 € that are called here are grossly overpriced.

  10. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The perfect combination of phenols, sherry and oak in the aroma, the taste is already manifested in the dissynchronism, smoke and peat are knocked out of the picture, in the aftertaste the picture is more harmonious, but in itself it loses flavor and taste, perhaps it would not prevent the increase in the fortress at least up to 50%.
    • Nose
      A dense, saturated, pronounced sherry effect - dried fruits, raisins, dried apricots, damp earth, light notes of mushrooms and molds, in the background dry processed wood of noble breeds, peaches, varnish-carpentry tones, a little solvent, stain, quite on the periphery of smoky and Smoked motives harmoniously framing the main colors, in general, very deep and varied.
    • Taste
      Soft, oily-enveloping, oak in the frame of dried fruits, very dense, rich in shades, spices, candied ginger, smoke, coal, burnt biscuits, peat.
    • Finish
      Light, airy, oak bitterness, compote of dried fruits, raisin water, ash, coal.
