  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    I think the mix of Port and Bowi is great, the fruits that come along complement the otherwise very characteristic Bowmore feeling.

      100% Bowmore, black tea, Roiboos also, spine, rosemary, spine, fine sea air in the background, dried blood oranges, some cinnamon, lavender, tannins, thyme, black pepper, chest of drawers

    Scent intensity: (7)
    Tonality: (7)
    Quite beautiful fruit longan baked cake...5
    Sprinkle a little on the caramel... 1
    Smoke is just a light makeup...1
    Mature is very beautiful...5
    The mellow and thick one is integrated... 5 The mild yellow brown color and the fresh fruit scent gradually appear pear juice. Citrus peel...3
    Entrance aroma: (7)
    Strength: (5)
    Tonality: (6)
    End rhyme: (6)
    The entrance can feel the obvious peat... 4
    Compared with the aroma taste style, the overall style is quite comfortable. The final tail is like raw chocolate.
    Total:( 91-92 )
    The performance on the aroma is almost unrecognizable. The fusion is quite good and the taste is very comfortable.

    Good bowmore, the profile is not spoiled port, can on the contrary - underlined
    • Nose
      nuts, fruits in chocolate, smoke is very pleasant and combined with other flavors
    • Taste
      fruit in honey and with spices, juicy smoke, no soap!
    • Finish

  7. ASWhisky scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    the false note may not afford a 23y at this price
    Bowmore did not do it a favor
    Overall, however, this whisky is edible
    • Nose
      damp flower stems from the vase
      Violet oil
      Fruits, salt
    • Taste
      clearly the wrong note violet oil again
      which sticks unpleasantly to the palate
      not as dominant as 17y
      Grapefruit
      very fruity and fresh notes
      maritime
      salty
    • Finish
      medium,
      fruity & salty maritime
      feel the violet oil only very fine in the background
      pleasant finish

    Top class Bowmore, the combo with the peat and port is a magical match????????

    • Nose
      95 95
      Big fruit (a distance away from the glass). Actually nosing, blueberry is prominent. Molasses, smoke/smoked potpourri, possibly smoked whiting.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Tannic/dry. Dark fruit, brown sugar. Smoked caramel.
    • Finish
      95 95
      Toffee. Coffee. Caramelized brown sugar. Smoky, as if the other notes were prepared over a campfire.
