  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Found the nose a bit disappointing and not too complex but the palate makes for it with even a touch of tropical fruits, enjoyable but too expensive

    A good and elegant peated malt, can find too much mizunara effect.
    • Nose
      Very gentle and light, very shy at the beginning and then after 20mins, more peat, sweet melon, fresh cream, caramel, hint of sherry, red fruits
    • Taste
      Leather, a lot more peaty than the nose suggested, sweet candied water, very dry but not too bitter.
    • Finish
      Bitter, rather flattish finish

    Definitely needs time! I tried this a couple of times before finding the time it which point I found it most agreeable. Keep monitoring it though, it changes relatively rapidly.

    Conclusion: 90/100 points - "Chameleon Whisky". The Bowmore is unfortunately hard to get and if then already at prices 100% + over the issue price. However, you not only get an excellent collector's bottle, but also an interesting Bowmore. Rarely have I had a whisky in my glass that was almost changeable and has changed over time over and over again. One thing is clear: there is much to discover here!

    • Nose
      In the nose you take a very enjoyable smell of roses, plums, and some smoke was. This is rounded off with dry wood. With water it becomes sweeter and rounder, less intense, with hints of ash.
    • Taste
      On the palate, the Bowmore is very sweet with subtle notes of wood, paired with vanilla in orange. With water it becomes even sweeter and unfolds notes of caramel, toffee and sugar cane. But loses fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Intensive but rather short, ashes of cigarettes, coal, some wood With water and air liquorice unfolds in the end.
