    Very nice dark reddish color - many great bottlings are like that - a very smoky Bowmore with just little peat - I really like it - fantastic
    • Nose
      92 92
      Fresh, intense, fruity, bitter oranges, peaches, jam, very smoky, cigars, hints of vanilla - very good
    • Taste
      93 93
      Punchy, very creamy, mellow, lots of smoke and also little bit peaty, fruity, citrus fruits, subtle sweetness - great
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, burning, better than a cold cigar

    It´s like sitting nearby a Railway and an old SteamTrain is paasing through. 

    You smell it? This is on of the good old Cask´s.

  8. peathead scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    If you like heavily peated and smokey Islay whiskies that have been matured in sherry butts then this is for you.  This is surprisingly peaty for a Bowmore, with lots of smoke and other typical Islay characteristics, yet the sweetness of the sherry butt is very present.  Same thing on the palate.  With some water the sherry becomes more pronounced but the combination (and balance!) of peat, smoke and sherry is just marvelous.  One more note about the peat.  It tastes a bit `earthy`, like you`ve got a drop of mud on your teeth.  This is my favourite Bowmore so far!  However, once in a while I can smell and taste hints of burned plastic which is not very nice.  But that disappears when the whisky can breath for a while.
