  3. Cicero did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very nice malt! Light smoke and sherry
    • Nose
      Yes, there is smoke in there. However, I can get used to the smoke quite well and quite quickly. A light sea breeze, dark sweet citrus like tangerine and some oak.
    • Taste
      Smoke (rather campfire), a slight tingling, but very short; extremely sweet, fruity, oily.

  4. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I like it! For a nine year old whisky, this is quite tasteful.
    • Nose
      Strong. The typical Bowmore scent, plus something extra.Not sure what it is.Some kind of fruit or spice. First I thought vanilla, but that's not quite it.
    • Taste
      Typical Bowmore taste, but less salty and more oaky. Again strong. Somewhat spicier too. First peat, changing into smoke, nice. Not very fruity. Medium sweet.
    • Finish
      Fading fast but lingering long. Somewhate dry.

  6. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Not bad at all. Quite something different than the standard Bowmore range.
    • Nose
      Spicy nose with heavy peat. More than I would have expected from a Bowmore. Some menthol and the salty sea. Nice fruits, not too dark though. 
    • Taste
      Very interesting, not burning at all. There is quite some oak now, nicely balanced with the smoke. But then again not as fruity as I would have thought. 
    • Finish
      Not that long to be honest. Quite medium. Dry finish. Little bitterness.
