  1. Pyromann scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Peaty one from Bowmore. Rather heavy, nicely combines smoke and peat with sherry sweetness.
    • Nose
      Rather soft, heavy and oily-like nose. Earthy notes, tobacco.
    • Taste
      Heavy, smoke and notes of peat, everything in more like softened, polished way. Some sherry sweetness.
    • Finish
      Smokey, but kind of soft. Medium long.

  2. MGHOW scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    Starts off well, the nose is great a symphony of barbecued seashore,but all spoiled by a cloying saltiness which abides and dominates.

  3. Andreas W. scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This is not a worthy successor to the Enigma for me. Too young, slightly metallic and not very intense and not really complex except for the typical Bowmore smoke. I had hoped for more and would rather go back to the Bowmore 12 or on my remnants of the Enigma back.

    Free superficial smell, smoky (secretly characteristic of Bowmore).

    Taste includes more flavors.

    The finish has disappeared very quickly.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Citrus, pepper, smoke and peat. What's more, you smell something sweet, leather and chocolate.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Pepper, smoke, peat, leather, caramel, citrus, orange, cotton candy and green apple.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Pepper and citrus fruit.

      Unfortunately the finish disappears very quickly.

  7. ApricotOne scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Typical Bowmore camp fire smoke which is there from the beginning, behind it some dark fruits, salt On the palate, citrus fruits emerge from the rather sourish variety. Little complex Departure relatively short despite the smoke, this is then also about longer.

  9. vojt466 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Pleasant whisky that promises in the smell of things that can not bring in taste and reverberation. Of course, I would not defeat her, bad drinking is not
    • Nose
      Earthquake, gravel smell, medicine, peat and quite distinct greens. Matolin, lemon peel in combination with creamy caramel and nugget. Later, the gum and hints of the sherry.
    • Taste
      Peat, fruit gum, medicine, woodyness, more acidic fruit tones. In a few moments he sinks into oranges and dried fruit. The taste is not bad, but it is so subtle and delicate (although some of that delicate spice will appear after a while)
    • Finish
      Peat, rubber, some vanilla, burnt toast, again spicy spices that warm up and hold on for a long time
