    Actually, more beautiful, intense Bowmore, if not there was the vinous aftertaste.

    Nice variety of the standard Bowmore line.
    • Nose
      A recognizable Bowmore nose, with the somewhat stale smoke smell. But with this also clearly show fruit notes. Some coins can be seen in the distance.
    • Taste
      Typical Bowmore, but slightly more fruit which pushes the smoke backwards.
    • Finish
      Medium.

    The one that really stood out in a lineup of around 20 Bowmores in a private tasting. Not really surprising considering what it is. Apart from the very enjoyable but cask-forward nose I didn't really feel it that day. The taste seemed to have that superficial "tacked on" quality to it, and the finish was lacking. It could be that the sample had suffered with time, but I'll hold that against the whisky since it's usually the finished/2nd matured ones that tend to collapse more spectacularly after having been open a long time.

    Nose:-
    Brandy soaked raisin, moist and juicy. Big and packed with dense
    berries and winery note of tannin, a little hint of coastal mineral
    emerge after initial breathing time, savoury. Do not attempt with
    excessive water. Enjoy it as it is.

    Palate:- Puff of smoke, but
    not usual Islay phenolic type of smoke, sophisticated and elegant.
    Loud and demand attention. Lightly creamy texture. This is like bitter
    cocoa bar with dried fruits.

    Finish:- Sublime long finishes,
    this is a marathon runner. Spicy, dry and echoing. Check out with a very
    pleasant cool mint feel on throat.

    Palate: Slightly salty, cherries, chocolate, gentle smoke
    Finish: Very long, fruity in the beginning, then the smoke shines through
    Overall: I like this even better than the 2007 Port Wood. Distinctly maritime with only little peat and quite fruity. Powerful!

  9. molar3rd scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Big wine influence here, you can’t go wrong. Red fruit : Berries, grapes. Tannins and smoke. soft peat smoke. a few lemony notes here and there and also plum sugar.

    Palate: Tannins are screaming over here, body is oily and nice. very grapey/winey stuff . then comes the peat, engulfing, big peat. you wouldn’t suspect it from the nose, but it delivers very nice and appetizing peat. (don’t expect a supernova here ok?) smoke, leather and some damp oak as well come into mind. soapy. (Bowmore or not eh?)

    Finish : Long , dry, Smoke lingers and some fruits as well. a bit dusty and bitter on the end.

    Summing it up:

    This one is nice, for a Bowmore i mean… but i do prefer the Longrow over it any time. The extra ABV do help it, but it’s more tamed and less kicking then the Longrow. But, again very nice.
