Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1998 MBl

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.84 points

  1. DramTom scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    It isn't the most balanced or expressive of Bowmores, but it is quite complex. Give it some time to breathe in the glass and you will be rewarded. 
    • Nose
      Oranges, lemon, salt, faint liquorice. Also peat and a bit 'dirty' as in Ledaig. Quite unusual on a Bowmore
    • Taste
      Smoked oranges, grapefruit, lemon, ash, peat. Typical Bowmore maritime influence. Nutmeg, ginger. Roots. Nice interplay between the sweet, bitter and more austere notes. Water brings out the citrus more
    • Finish
      Medium on sweet orange, bitter grapefruit and ash

  2. mikespike scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A bit sharp. The Sherry cask does not add enough sweetness and complexity to make this work for me.Not the best cask in imho. I compared this directly with a Wilson and Morgan 2001 sherry finished Bowmore that worked much better for me.
