Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1991 Port Matured
29 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.92 points
- There are no words, the ideal symbiosis of port and whisky, like the work of a genius sculptor, everything unnecessary is thrown here and only the essence is left, and this essence is beautiful.
An uneven, moist, dense, smoky-smoked, ham, lard with meat veins, mineral-marine, in the background, the influence of the barrel is felt - dried fruits, raisins, dried grapes - rather tones than rubies;
Tight, sweet, raisins, grapes, smoke-peppery wave, light acidity, again raisins of different kinds, very dense and heavy.
Continuation of taste, powerful, saturated, smoke and peat in the background, ahead of dried fruit, a lot of raisins, rather white, wilted grapes, light and sweet ginger, candied cherry, yes it's definitely tony, red orange, lemon zest.
- The best representative of the 16-year-old Bowmore CS series, everything is right here. The finish was significantly longer from the second sip. When the port has finally prevailed, he is extremely good to the Bowmore. After a long time back and forth, there's 88 of me.
Notes from an online chat tasting
At first I find the sherry typical as the sherry-matured. Where is the port? Thick, thick and sweet with a lot of hot smoke, let stand for a moment ...
Now everything is better integrated, works harmoniously, but still not like a port. Heavy, dark jam, a bit cassis, candied wild berries, with a medium level of smoke with some sour notes, smoldering fire. From time to time, the alcohol tickles something in the nose, but now comes the port with the red fruit, but late. In addition, now comes a bit biscuitous. I also find homeopathic doses of leather, disinfectants and eucalyptus. Interestingly, he warms up when heated. Nothing new and nothing really stands out.
Oh, he is different. Great strong start with a huge swing strawberry jam. Only after a few seconds, the smoke can fight forward, now comes from behind some oak, but much less, than the other two candidates. A few clearly medical hints, unsweetened espresso and a bit of Zeste complete the whole.
Demand: "zeste" from what?
Hard to say, orange peel?
Have just another mouthful ...
Orange peel, unique.
The second sip had much less strawberries, seemed rather artificially sweet, flavored, now more oak from behind, bitter chocolate again. Beautiful viscous oily with well-integrated alcohol.
Again, relatively short, at least not really long, after the notes brought from the taste are relatively evenly disappeared, remains a floral, slightly soapy, especially ashy reminder on the tongue. He has the violets in the finish.
- Great bowmore from days gone by.
Penetrating and "scratchy" portnote. A lot of red fruit, behind it comes the smoke. Violet soap works forward and tries to prevail against the Portaromen. Yes, now the smoke is there, greasy and peaty. Nice connection of the smoke with the red fruits and the spices that come later. Here you can stay for a long time at the nose.
The violets from the nose rinse directly over the tongue, take a good helping of greasy smoke. Dry, but not too much. Grapes and overripe mango, smoked orange peel. Everything warming. Later dark chocolate and coffee beans.
Long and dry, still smoky, fruity, not a bit bitter - wood has not made a mark.
- I won! Bowmore and Port. That just fits. Very tasty, aromatic and good.
- I love the Port Bowmores and this one too was to reinstall. Yum. Those were the times...
a bit of acrid smoke (burning match), spicy, dry, old leather, horse stable ... raisins, some orange marmalade, salt ... with water comes again a lot of dry wood and nut ... walnut
dry and dry, slightly soapy-violet-bitter, the fruitiness goes also in a bitter-bitter direction, so from blackberry, blackcurrant to grapefruit, to cocoa, pepper, a bit green-bitter (flower cut)
long, fart-dry (furry), dark chocolate edelherb, some white pepper and again this subtly tart floral-fruity somewhere between blackcurrant and violet
- Colour: Red-pinkish
Nose: Spirity, salty, slighty peated and with a Port
Taste: Salty, strong Port influence, very smooth, light,
clean, some peat and bitter toffee as well as pineapples. Diluted, strawberry
aromas becomes apparent and the saltiness, the peat and the seaweed flavours
become stronger. The finish is clean, round, smooth, on Port and
General Impression: Surprisingly thin, but round, salty and well
equilibrated. For a full maturation in Port Cask, the result is quite
impressive, since the Bowmore flavours have not been taken over by the Port.
