  2. 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.

    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

  6. p4blo scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Well, you can't expect too much for a whisky that costs roughly 25€ per liter, can you? A nice alternative to JW for mixers, not exactly a single malt to contemplate.
    • Nose
      Quite some smoke covering faint fruity notes of berries, raisins and caramel. Very straightforward.
    • Taste
      Thin, waterish and rather simple. Notes of indistinctive dried fruits, caramel and ash.
    • Finish
      Short, on ash and caramel.
