  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    No age statement. 1 2/3 oz mini, 70 proof. Totally chuggable.

      Great, tropical fruity nose.

      Ruined by low proof. 70 proof means 40%. Probably less than barely minimum now. I guess they didn't know what they had back then. Shame. Still, 91 points is no slouch, but at full proof, or even 43% (really, did you just say that?!?), this would be at least a 93 points.

      Weakest part. Of course. Old, heavily diluted whiskies, usually don't end as well.

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Superb tropical Bowmore, tasted at Old and Rare show London 2020, maybe the nose was magnified by the 1920 blenders glass...
    • Nose
      Explosive tropical fruits, kiwis, some high esters, gasoline, farmy, dried mango, quite salty, dried apricots.
    • Taste
      Mellow, silky, almost no peat, very fruity and hot, coconut, mango milk.
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet and creamy, very peaty.
