Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 2002 DR

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 75.50 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose completely closed. Some salty notes with unidentified fruits playing hide-and-seek behind. On the palate, peat hyper supported, not very Bowmore, in fact! Behind the alcohol, massive, I detect a potential of Fruit-Bomb that just wants to express itself! Strongly that I add a first time of the water. At 60.7 °, you can afford it. Big change on the nose: we now have very light vanilla. The aromas are very weak. Is it a refill? On the palate, the peat has calmed down a bit since while fruits are rising ... but the expected explosion will not take place, too bad. We also have Chocapic. (Good malt and chocolate, let's be clear.) Finale with a fruity retro-olfaction. Second addition of water: on the nose, exotic fruits but without forcing, freshness. Light peat. The touch of mouth is now very pleasant, creamy and malty. Finely delicately fruity. Enthusiasm 2/5 3/5 with water

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Perfume essence? Sweet flowers? It's weird anyway, but not at all the Bowmore profile on the smoke.
      Subsequently the bread crumb of large industrial bread.
    • Taste
      Very alcoholic and citric palate.
    • Finish
      It burns ! It's (very) acidic!
