Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1999 CWC

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Punchy textbook Bowmore. Instant
    classic. Recommended.
    • Nose
      The bittersweet, soft nose offers
      a whole lot of citrus up front. Think lemon and grapefruit. Some apples and
      maybe some gooseberries. Turns slightly tropical after a few minutes. Think
      pineapple and mango. And the peel of a green banana. It then turns somewhat
      mineral. Fatty coals and some medicinal touches, although those are certainly
      not in your face. Finally some farmer’s butter.
    • Taste
      Good body. A bit piquant and
      immediately all kinds of citrus appear on the palate, followed by sweet vanilla
      and ashes. Becomes somewhat dirty on the tongue, which I can appreciate. The
      smokiness becomes quite big all of a sudden. Pepper rears its head. Hint of sea
      salt. Leaf of mint? Lime juice and oyster juice go hand in hand. Some garden
      herbs and green tea towards the end.
    • Finish
      In the long, warm finish sweet
      and salty go head to head. It leaves the mouth dry.

    After the smokinesses there's exceptional citrus fruits in the long finish. Brilliant bottling!
