Whisky Reviews for Bowmore Tempest

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The smell convinces with intensity and versatility, the smoke is a good, but not dominant counterpoint to the sour citrus and sweet vanilla notes. The taste goes well with the aroma, the whisky is strong, for the young age, the whisky is quite mature. The palate shows surprisingly little smoke. He only returns in the harmonious long finish, which rounds off the whisky worthily. A very successful Bowmore!
    • Nose
      Smoke, lemon, green apple, followed by vanilla, sawdust and a little lime, the vanilla remains, in the end comes a sour herbaceous note, and again the lemon, sugared now
    • Taste
      Light body, oily consistency, noticeable onset, slight bitterness, oak, citrus notes, accompanied by a slight tartness like a grapefruit, lime, malt, also vanilla, a trace of salt
    • Finish
      It leaves a slight sharpness on the tongue and on the palate for a moment, the smoke returns, lime, malt, slightly bitter, long

  2. HunterRomario scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I tasted at the Whisky Festival 2017. This Bowmorka was sitting well.
    • Nose
      The smell is medical, sharply sharp. Gauze, fresh oak, a little grassy and citrus. Green apple, pineapple, vanilla, malt, straw. There is a lot of scents between them, so there is still something to be discovered. (88 b)
    • Taste
      Sweet, sweet, with a touch of citrus and freshness, fruit fruit, oak and pineapple. (90 b)

    Exactly what you expect from a Tempest Bowmore.
    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whisky n ° 1213
    • Nose
      Moderate peat, fresh fruits that turn exotic after the first sip. Vanilla.
    • Taste
      Well corpulent, well integrated alcohol. Sweet spices, exotic fruits and peat are the lion's share.
    • Finish
      On exotic fruits.

  4. Krisladdich scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    For the young age really good, here must have been good ex-bourbon barrels at work. Provides very intense flavors for 10 years. Unfortunately, the barrels do not manage to take his youth.

      What a start. If you like classic ex-bourbon notes, you'll get their money's worth. Custard, some butterscotch and biscuit. Then the other side shows up and it becomes fruity-fresh with aromas like lemon zest, lemon zest / back flavor. Finally, some honey. But always very fresh and a bit too alcoholic.
    • Taste

      A crazy interplay at first sip. First spicy, then sugar sweet, then sharp again. Here again the vanilla is very present, on the tongue less fruity, more in the direction of the pastry. Add a light spice and a little tingle.

      He stays there for a long time. Warming, cheeks dry and tongue damp. The finish is sweet and also very mild after the warming sharpness. The finish reflects something here again and is really fun. Overall, he can not hide his young age.

  7. Kaleva did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice Bowmore, feels way more mature than 10 years. Nice, quite complex and very gently smoky nose, simple but still pleasant palate and obvious maritime character. Very well composed and balanced expression. The price may seem high as for 10 yo but for this quality whisky it’s rather fair.
    • Nose
      Slightly smoky, creamy (fudge), vanilla, cherry liqueur, overripe pear, citrus and honey notes, some maritime motives (seaweed, oysters), water intensifies sweet notes
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet and salty, ginger, lemon zest, roasted almonds
    • Finish
      Medium-long, a bit sweet, salty, briny, vanilla fudge notes
