Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 2000 SV

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.06 points

  1. Bouncer scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Not too complex but what's in it is citrus and peat in a perfect mix.
    Even people who complain that they have no extensive knowledge of smells and tastes can recognize this and enjoy it!

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    exit for a WL!
    tested with DH after concert.
    • Nose
      lemon, a little peppermint, fine herbs and then wet salt and fine peat, more on the smoke in fact, all associated with lemon zest.
      freshness of aromatic herbs.
    • Taste
      sweet spices, white chocolate, it's creamy, unctuous, it's on cold smoke, fine peat
      the lemon is well marked, a little confit
      the salt comes out with some herbs or some dried seaweed rather, in any case one feels the ambient air of the port !!
    • Finish
      peat, smoke, salt, lemon, grassy, seaweed!

  3. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Smoke, salt, ember, sulfur from the burnt match, polish ...
    Burning fortress, with a slight anesthetic effect ...
    The finish is long, pleasant.

      Oh, noblesse! You can´t quite call it shy but it´s a silent dram. Lemons, brine, a little smoke, sea breeze. Gets a little louder with the time. A little bit of putty. Fresh concrete. Hints of wool or new t-shirts (yeah cotton)
      I like this nose very much due to its straightforward freshness

      same as on the nose, a little more brine than expected, maybe hints of oranges. olive oil. mouthwatering and coating. It´s perfect!
    • Finish

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    An interesting mole, at first it seems somewhat primitive, but gradually unfolds, very intact, well-inscribed in the general picture manufactured goods notes, games with water have highlighted some mineral tones.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, arboreal, dry medicinal herbs, grain notes, wood dust, fresh cuts, new leather goods, new sneakers, light rubber and smoky shades, light floral tones; With water the picture does not change, becoming only more contrast, sharper, mineral derivatives appear.
    • Taste
      Sharp, rich, tart oak, grain, a wave of red and lemon pepper, marinated ginger, lemon rind, bitter sweet notes, burnt paper; With water becomes softer, mineral, metallic shades appear.
    • Finish
      Tender, refreshing, slightly astringent oak, herbal notes, bitter young bark, some spices, anise? coriander? Here, water does not add anything, except mineral water with grapefruit juice.

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It's direct, fine and massive at the same time. Without embellishment. Brilliant.
    Enthusiasm 5/5
    Whisky n ° 1402
    • Nose
      Malt and moderate peat. Fine enough on the cereal, very pretty even. Subtle and sweet. Warm on wood and vanilla. Fruits ? Not really: a little yoghurt with peach maybe.
    • Taste
      What a balance! Spices, salty note, finely integrated peat. Superb texture both fluid and corpulent, juicy even. A little coffee at the end of the mouth. And of course malt in the spotlight.
    • Finish
      Final clean, intense, with something milky.

    Bowmore 13 yo 2000/2013 (54.1%, Signatory Vintage for Whisky Live Paris 10th Anniversary, hogshead, cask #1429, 286 bottles)  Colour: white wine. Nose: ultra-chiselled! 'Opening your bedroom's windows early in the morning on the shores of the isle of Islay.' Or something like that. Seawater, lemon juice and peat smoke in equal amounts. Nothing more, but you can't beat this. With water: as almost always with Bowmore, there's more humus, damp earth, farmyard... Mouth (neat): just 'yes!' Exactly right, on the same infernal trio, brine, lemon juice and a fairly ashy peat smoke. With water: citrus up, it becomes smoother. From lemon to pink grapefruits. Finish: good length, still chiselled. Comments: distillate-forward, my favourite way. Perfect statemental choice (what?) SGP:557 - 90 points.
