Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 2001 BR

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.33 points

  1. hartist scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A dram that will not be chronicling but is nevertheless eminently easy and pleasant to drink. Dangerous in this sense !!
    • Nose
      Not aggressive, fresh and fragrant on freshly crushed white fruit juice (alcoholic juice of pears, apples, plums), with discreet ashy notes. (no smoke or peat)
    • Taste
      Fresh mouth, almost quaffable, still young but quite rich and ample and in any case very pleasant. The fruits invoked above are still there, add some vanilla notes and especially herbaceous and flavored (star anise, green pastis) while arise fragrant ash.
    • Finish
      Long enough while remaining fresh and fragrant then ends on ashes of blond tobacco.

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Floral notes matched by dormant ashy/sooty fireplaces. Brine, seaweed and engine oil but clean overall. Also raspberries, herbal tea, lavender, some cow pats and vanilla cream. Easy nose to read, splendid
    T: Its a unified woody, malty, peaty, spicy affair this one, everything comes in at once.
    F: Ethanol smoke, vanilla, nutty caramel and bourbon fruits. More smoke wafts, milky touches too with a saline taste and cocoa at the death.
    C: Ive never had much joy with Bowmore, so this was a pleasant surprise.

    Scores a B+
