  1. JohannesB scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    An excellent old Bowmore, outclassing many of the newer bottlings. The great complexity after 30 years still allows a certain freshness and fruitiness to really shine. Reminiscent of the Tomatin 30, only in combination with mineral notes and the typical Bowmore smoke. Class!
    • Nose
      Bowmore at it's best! The typical floral Bowmore smoke with notes of heather and burnt flowers is still there after 30 years, but very gentle. Wonderful soft fruitiness of grapefruit, lemon grass, dried apricots and some pineapple meets tender sherry notes. Raisins, plum jam, wild honey and dark caramel. Above all, there is a mineral impression of limestone and fresh mint. With increasing time in the glass, the facets merge into a total work of art. Very complex, deep and very fresh and lively for his age!
    • Taste
      Full and intense it unfolds on the tongue. Honey, green tea, peaches, pineapple and raisins are on the tongue. This is definitely where the ex-bourbon casks set the tone. Meanwhile, a peppery pungency spreads on the cheeks. In addition, clear associations with salty sea spray. Again, a note of mint is to be felt in connection with soft smoke.
    • Finish
      Long and surprisingly smoky with some ashes. Vanilla and caramel pudding, honey and a lot of tropical fruitiness. Now, for the first time, also clear oak spice appears. Cedar wood and burnt espresso sit at the very end to the palate and reverberate for a long time.
