  1. Deloti scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    sampled in 2013, I don´t think I can afford to try it again... here we go anyway
    • Nose
      95 95
      Usual nose of these 50s-60s bowmores. Wonderful, exotic fruits, bananas, tangerines, chocolate, honey, grapefruit. Fresh
    • Taste
      93 93
      Toffee, honey, oranges, damp earth, subtle peat, passion fruit, mango. Well balanced and creamy
    • Finish
      96 96
      Very long towards the charcoal and maritime side rather than the fruity one

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    It is the finish of this whisky that you realise you are tasting something really old.

  4. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Similar to the Gold but more punchy in its delivery.

    Like the Gold you tend to appreciate it more once you have finished the glass. The finish is top drawer, leaves you wanting more.
    • Nose
      More Substantial than the Gold in my view being much more expressive.

      Slight coffee notes, varnish, honeycomb, faint toffee.
    • Taste
      Smooth, honeyed, hot buttered toast (brown bread), slightly oily, honeycomb, definite notes of custard and perhaps a little sulphur?

      Less fruity than the Gold.
    • Finish
      Long and smooth and refined

  5. Safran scored this whisky 97 points Member Senior

    One of the
    best (or even the best) whisky I ever tried. I can even justify it's
    price! (almost). Someone wants to pour me some more? :)
    • Nose
      Full bouquet of tropical fruits! Really fresh, light and full. Not too woody. Not to much to add. One of the most impressive aromas I ever tasted.
    • Taste
      Same greatness here. fresh, full of tropical fruits, ripe fruits
      and bit of corn and vanilla. Not too dry or woody.

    Tasting Notes by John Hansell (Malt Advocate)

    I like this Bowmore better than all the previous
    bourbon oak-aged, ultra-mature Bowmore whiskies that have been released
    over the past fifteen years. (There have been several.) The oak is
    always present, but not dominant. And the whisky really evolves on the
    palate, just like the Black Bowmore releases.

    This emphasis here is on fruit, bright fruit:
    peach, tangerine, mango, ripe melon, and pineapple. There’s a soft,
    gentle side to the whisky too, enhanced by sweeter notes of pancake
    syrup, orange creamsickle and white chocolate. Heavy oak notes emerge,
    along with teasing, earthy smoke, to give the whisky depth and bottom
    notes. The smoke and oak linger long on the finish.  Very contemplative.
    In short, an outstanding whisky, but not quite reaching the excellence
    of Black Bowmore.

    Advanced Malt Advocate magazine rating: 94/100
     

  7. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Producer`s Tasting Notes

    Colour: Golden syrup.

    Nose: Amazing aromas of Gallia melon, mango and papaya.

    Palate: Hints of mixed exotic fruits, vanilla and maple syrup with just a trace of Bowmore peat smoke.

    Finish: Surprisingly clean and incredibly long.

    Tasting Notes by Tim F
    Nose: 

    Immediate burst of tweed and sweet, creamy exotic fruit - melon, mango,

    kiwi.  Also some light camphor, then a flash of sleek oak.  Aged orange

    liqueur and smoked vanilla as the oak becomes more noticeable.  Ripe

    mandarin oranges, grapefruit soda, tinned pineapples.  Oaky notes of old

    wood, chocolate powder and faint mocha.  Peach melba yoghurt. Wet sand.

    Old tarpaulins.  In a word: Majestic.  In another word: Everchanging.
    Palate:  Amazing mouthfeel, with assertive oak and spiced fruity

    flavours invading every tastebud.  All the characteristics of the nose

    whirl past in different combinations, with

    the firm-but-not-overpowering oak background providing the rhythm

    section, as it were.  Impressive clarity of fruit character and

    pitch-perfect integration.  There is very little peat character here,

    just the faintest wisp of smoke. In a word: Mesmerising.
    Finish:  A longer-then-expected, warm, soft, lingering fade, almost

    unwilling to drag itself from the tongue.  Seems to become more maritime

    toward the death.

    After 2007`s `new` Black Bowmore, this White
    Bowmore is the second edition of the Noughties` 1964 series, and
    has spent its life in bourbon casks, so should make for a very
    interesting contrast. Awarded 94 points from John Hansell in Malt
    Advocate, this was one of the most talked-about releases of 2008.

    White Bowmore has been gradually maturing in six bourbon casks
    in the distillery’s famous No 1 vaults since 1964; they have now been
    bottled as a coveted collector’s item for whisky connoisseurs throughout
    the world. An extraordinary melange of pure tropical fruit character
    with venerable oak and maritime notes.

  10. corbuso scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A very nicely made Whisky, without blemishes from the 43 years spent in a cask, with a superb fruity nose. Alas, not a cheap whisky.
