  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Funny to describe a whisky in what is not there, in comparison to other expressions...Still very nice old complex Bowmore though.
    • Nose
      Dried fruits intermingled with ,,, eh not the typical (gorgeous) cat piss and tropical fruit of the late 1960's. More on the dusty side. Herbal notes of thyme and rosemary. Cough syrup. Old furniture. Leather at the background. Whiff of smoke, but not much.
    • Taste
      Orange marmelade. Figs and dates. Polished oak. Nutty chewy richness. Caramel fudge. Some sherry noters. Dark chocolate. Cinnamon. Also more peaty than the nose.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Quite dry. Light pepper and some salt.

      Christmas fireplace in a country house. Sublime combination of wood, peat and ashes
    • Taste
      90 90
      Syrup of fragrant and sweet berries
    • Finish
      90 90
      Soft and delicate like a juice
