    Blindtasting.

    Nice smoker, but somehow a bit closed. Pretty good, but not a top class for me.
    • Nose
      Medium-thick smoke, more greasy than dry, with sherry flavors, orange, dark chocolate, nuts, short-term earthy and wet wood. Alcohol is well integrated. With the addition of water, the nose becomes slightly thinner, but also more alcoholic.
    • Taste
      Sweet at first with sherry. Pepper comes quickly on the tongue, smoked ham, dark chocolate. Some water makes this malt creamy, almost mild.
    • Finish
      Medium long, slightly sweet and peppery, the smoke turns towards ash and covers the tongue with oak.

  8. ovanpuyvelde scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    More spicy than fruity. I didn’t taste a lot of this “tropical fruitiness” that many reviewers are raving about. In my opinion, this is a rather disappointing Bowmore / Signatory bottling, especially on the nose and the finish. Not worth the hype and fortunately I only paid 89€ for it.

    Have tasted little Bowmore's but this is really a pleasant whisky. It does not have the peat and smoke of the Southern Islay's but is very fruity (tropical) and in combination with the spicy elements this gives a taste explosion in the mouth.

    Just opened a second bottle… I think it evolved majestically after only 17 months of bottling. I'll even ad up a point, this is my brand, this is why I fell in love with Bowmore.
