Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 22-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.68 points
- Disappointing one as the 30yo ceramics are usually very good. Very floral but not in a good way maybe a hint as to what was coming in the early 80s. Still drinkable though
- A 22 year old Bowmore Islay malt that was bottled in the mid-1990's and is presented in a rather stunning blue ceramic bottling, adorned with seagulls, and complete with well kept original presentation case. These ceramic bottle releases (Seagull/Sea Dragon) from Bowmore have earned themselves a bit of a legendary status over the years and are increasingly difficult to source.
Flowers, vanilla, coconut, candle wax, taste of elderflower.
soft and creamy with a bit of chewiness, sea salt toffee on the back of it. very lemony.
big floral notes, not real throat tickle though because of the little alcohol percentage. some smokey backdrop notes.
- Great 70s distillate, in the past it was much better (!?) - that's a lot of fun
Full bloom on a flower meadow, wild chamomile, broom, heather, elderflower syrup, blossom honey - in all a slight hint of smoke is perfectly integrated - very complex
Immediately a warming, creamy soft mouthfeel (is that actually alcohol in the glass?) - Lutschwhisky (!) - herbal drops, yellow Campinos, bitter orange, canned peaches, custard with a dash of alcohol, the smoke is only far back audible
Fruity, floral, for its low alcohol content surprisingly long in the mouth and throat - in the end, but still some wood comes to light and a nice lasting subtle smoky nuance
- One of a kind, wish Suntory didn't buy this brand and ruined the OB line with CF n colouring
Vanilla, butter, coconutty, tres leches, copper, malt & candle
Vanilla, coconut, lemon cake, sea salt toffee, soap, smoke, grass, wax & malt
Long honey, smoke & malt
