  2. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Acts despite his 17 years still youthful, even if on the tongue the oak is easy to find. Fresh.
    • Nose
      Mild, smoky, slightly thinner, slightly pungent. Removes smoked bacon, green apples, gooseberries. For 17 years quite "aggressive" in the nose.
    • Taste
      The smoke intensity is also limited on the tongue. Fresh bright fruits, vanilla, some oak. A herbal mix will become slightly tart over time.
    • Finish
      Herb tart, a lot of wood, only a little fruity, smoky (more intense than in the nose).

  3. Mannix65 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Balanced and quite complex - very good PLV at the issue price
    • Nose
      Herbs, haystacks, eucalyptus, nicely interwoven medium smoke, some varnish, orange and lemon, soap
    • Taste
      Salt and smoke, maritime, swimming pool, a trace of bitterness of grapefruit,
      - with a few drops of water it becomes much sweeter, orange emerges, the mouth is filled with more volume
    • Finish
      Medium long, smoky and dry with a lasting impression of menthol

  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Small sample from Whiskybase.
    • Nose
      Orange peel, (Littlemill-style) grapefruit, citrus, grass, herbs (rosemary / eucalyptus), pastry, malt and only only very light peat.
    • Taste
      Quite sweet, like orange candy. Quite a bitter touch as well, like blood orange or grapefruit. Citrus, peat, a little pastry and a tad of salt.
    • Finish
      More peat now. Citrus, grapefruit, orange candy, caramel, grass and grains.

  8. Tabrulavubeg scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Faultless Bowmore. Peaty, with a nice combo of slightly fruity aromas and brine.
    Just the way Bourbon cask matured Bowmore should be like at this age.
