  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    By Serge;

    Bowmore 13 yo 2001/2014 (57.2%, Blackadder, hogshead, cask #20066, 292 bottles)  I know I had promised we’d quote Black Adder every time we’re having a whisky by Blackadder. How about this: "It's up to you. Either you can shut up, or you can have your head cut off." No no no, that had nothing to do with whisky bloggers. Colour: white wine. Nose: different, much harsher, almost acetic. Rather bone-dry sauvignon from the west coast than chenin, I’d say. Seawater, smoked stones, caper juice… What a difference a cask makes! With water: dusty limestone, hessian, nylon trousers. Mouth (neat): very blade-y, this is almost a pair of scissors. Very sharp smoky and mineral lemon juice. Bang! With water: gets a tad sweeter and gentler. Well, no, not really, despite the touches of pears and peaches, it remains some blade-y Bowmore. Finish: long, sharp, angular. Angular? Comments: this baby would stand up to the artisan-est mezcals or clairins. You see, it’s all about the distillate. SGP:467 - 89 points
