  1. Vmarcinv did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Absolutely gorgeous!
    Nose- the power of delicate fruit, it is without, a lot of leather, tobacco. Smoke is a beautiful complement that covers nothing. There is some furniture polish, sherry oak gave the best to the distillate.
    Taste - Full, Delicate, there is wax, old wood, a lot of herbs and fruitiness, Although only 43% immediately fills the mouth. Delicate smoke combined with light earthiness.
    Finish - Long, nice lots of oak, fruit, tobacco and vanilla.

    Old school style, depth and complexity.
    Fruity, smoky, extremely enjoyable

    Lacks a little abv strength, but definitely did not disappoint despite high expectations

    Raised +1 point after second tasting.
    Due to quite low ABV it uncovers much more when tasted alone.
    It's oily, syrupy character unfolds, developed in each aspect really - fantastic dram!

    Pretty good, old style Bowmore - better than the Bowmore 1965 OB with the seagull label but not as good as the Bowmore 1956 OB with the seagull label. Personally I also prefer the Bowmore 1972 for Prestonfield over this one.
    • Nose
      Hints of grapefruits, lemons, and also notes of vegetables and little grassy
    • Taste
      Citrus fruits, subtle sweetness, again hints of green fruits, lemon zest, little oak wood
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm

    Pretty lemony and grassy on the nose. On the palate it actually confirms the nose. It is full of citrusy, lemony and also grassy. There are subtle notes of oak wood and some balanced sweetness. No doubt it's a good one.
