Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1998 CA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.37 points

  1. I_SPEY scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Butterish, cookie-dough and not to peaty. An ultimately balanced whisky. There's a bit of flowers, perfum, citrus and some peat.And licorice! Quite simple on the nose! This whisky has to breathe a bit and needs a bit of warmth to fully release its aroma’s. The longer it stands the more smoky it gets! Coastal!

    Taste: A beautiful Bowmore, with a sweet and very full body, yet not heavy and quite un-complex. Good sweetness. Hints of mocha and cappuccino. A nice peppery bite and citrus with custard. Lemon sherbet. Nice hints of wood. Extremely drinkable, but also quite simple, at the same time! 

    Finish: Is not too long though and the pepper stays with you longer than the finish does.

    A cracker!
