    smooth and short

    A reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally boring Malt.

    Thin and uneventful.Pretty much a young Bowmore out of tired casks.

  2. zebeautiful scored this whisky 82 points Newbie

    I don't know if I should note the bottle I bought in november 2017, or what the bottle became three months later.
    I was in love when I opened it (lemon, apricot, orange, peat...), but the most interresting flavours are gone... Only lemon, orange or leather stayed... The peaty nose and flavour (which were well balanced) are totally gone !

    Disappointing.

    (I reviewed the bottle when I opened it)

    Soft Entry

    Last time I tried this young Bowmore, without age statement but with a strong name, was in 2010.

    The nose is soft on all kinds of citrus fruit, sweetened with loads of karamel and a lost litchi. The smoke development is soft, somewhat drowned out in the honey and sweet malt.

    It is nicely oily on the palate, sweet from the first sip with a lovely salty edge and clear hints of seawater and peat. Reminds me of a smoldering fire on the beach. Actually nicely balanced if you ask me, despite the fact that it is very easy to drink (well, the first does not exclude the second, does it?).

    The finish is rather short and the smoke fades quickly, yielding the floor to the sweetness again.

    Soft entry level malt at a very good price (around 25 to 35 EUR where I live). There are worse things to start 2017 with. Thanks, Pat.

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A most charming whisky, a pleasant milder peat, where there is also room for sweeter influences. The first nipple still dominates the peat (salmiak), but after that it becomes increasingly creamier and sweeter.
    For his price a very acceptable whisky, drunk enough whiskys that were more expensive but have less to offer. Great daily dram.

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A somewhat milder peated whisky, in which the smoky is not overpowering, but also room for fruitiness (in the nose) and sweetness (in nose and taste). The whisky is becoming more creamy in structure per nipple.
    • Nose
      Peat, slightly smoky, leather, salty. Also some citrus, and honey
    • Taste
      First nip: salmiak! And peat, smoky, peppery, tobacco, wood fire. Also sweet, honey, white chocolate. After several sips: always creamier, butter.
    • Finish
      Tends to medium-long, peaty, smoky, peppery, light honey. Bit bitter at the end.
