Dede gave this whisky 87 points

Nez : Belle alliance de tourbe fine et de sherry sec. Café, chocolat noir, oranges amères. Quelques notes soufrées/organiques (têtes d'allumettes, champignons noirs), mais cela reste léger.

Bouche : Puissante, mais équilibrée. La tourbe est plus terreuse que fumée ou médicinale, avec pas mal de gentiane et de réglisse. Elle se marie au sherry qui apporte du chocolat noir amer, du tabac. Les tanins sont présents sans excès. La texture est bien grasse, un whisky que l'on mâche avec plaisir.

Finale : Longue, marquée par des notes de tabac (cigare à cru), et salée.

Moins apprécié la deuxième fois.

Bowmore 15 yo 1998/2013 (52.1%, The Whisky Agency, refill butt, 719 bottles) Four stars I know I should have tried this baby two years ago, I know. Colour: full gold. Nose: no gunpowder, little leather, no struck matches, rather a fresh clean, coastal Bowmoreness with bags of Seville oranges (I ‘stole’ some while in Seville a few weeks ago, and tasted them – gosh they were bitter) and indeed a little leather, coffee beans, bitter chocolate and then touches of black mustard. Old walnuts. Bone dry oloroso. With water: hay, tobacco, black tea. Mouth (neat): balance! I think we all forget that balance is the most important word in whisky. Granted, there are a few stone-y, leathery, leafy notes, but the cocoa and coffee work well, even if Bowmore + sherry might well be the trickiest combination ever. A matter of balance indeed, like with any peater from Islay. With water: chocolaty, tobacco-ish, leathery, dry. Finish: long, salty, chocolaty. Comments: probably not an easy one. The butt added some kind of leathery dryness.SGP:465 - 85 points.

couleur or profond, nez sucré, légèrement iodé et tourbé, chocolat, orange, un peu de sous-bois et de tabac. Bouche douce, gourmande, un peu sucrée, facile, moyennement épaisse, chocolatée. Longueur moyenne. Un whisky très facile, un peu trop peut-être.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Hmm, lovely nose where the peatsmoke is clearly present. This is a sherry refill so there are whiffs of citrus, raisins, wood and leather. Not very complex but the combination with the peatsmoke is nice.    

Taste

At first the peat is dominating then I get citrus again, like lemon candy, then it gets a bit sweeter and more herbal. That's the influence of the sherry. All very nice in balance. I really love this profile.    

Finish

The finish is rather long where the peat is lingering together with the sweetness of the sherry.     

Comments

Two words: Lovely Bowmore!

Très bon nez, dominé par une tourbe fine et des fruits acidulés.
Bouche assez douce, la patte shérysée est bien présente. Profil assez éloigné des standards Bowmore , la tourbe typique de la distillerie est assez discrète. C`est néanmoins très bon, j`ai l`impression d`avoir un bonbon au sirop pour la toux en bouche.
Finale assez courte, très douce sur les fruits cuits.

Un très bon whisky, mais qui est éloigné du profil Bowmore typique.
