Whisky Reviews for Bowmore Mizunara Cask Finish
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.86 points
- 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
tobacco, sherry, orange, red fruits (strawberries), smoke
pepper, dry, vanilla, oak, peat
pepper, tobacco, vanilla, sherry
- A good and elegant peated malt, can find too much mizunara effect.
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
Leather, a lot more peaty than the nose suggested, sweet candied water, very dry but not too bitter.
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!

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.
Intensive but rather short, ashes of cigarettes, coal, some wood With water and air liquorice unfolds in the end.
