  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

    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.

    Room temperature when drinking: 26℃

    Viewing Eyes: Lemon juice smells Nose: Milk flavor brought by BB filling, dense cream, mousse. The green grapes have a slightly sour gas, not enough oil, and smell fresh and pungent. Mint candy, the fragrance of February orchid, lavender washing powder + dried sage flowers are not common. Smoked, sea waves are covered, sprinkled with cheese yoghurt, cream, milk skin, the subsequent sour taste increases, a little dry wheat fragrance, baguette taste Palate: very sour, fruit vinegar, wood, sweet milk, cheerful fresh green Mention, there is even a little minerality, a bit like Hasselblad 10. The second half is very salty, strong smoke, lemongrass, camphor leaf, tea essential oil, light kumquat tail + green tea finishing rhythm Finish: short, bitter, green plants, Wang Zi milk body: medium, fat Feeling explosive, almost no tannin, medium bottom

    Nose: 86/100
    Palate: 86/100
    Finish: 85/100
    Body: 86/100
    Overall: 86/100

    Overall: If you love acid, you will get sick.

    See? You *can* actually find "real" Bowmore in the core range – or you could, at least (until they discontinued this series, that is).
    Doesn't need any water, but water also doesn't hurt it in the slightest.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Rich and dense first-fill vanillin, fusty florals (a whiff of violet), lovely warm wood tones and sweet, juicy fruits: tangerines, melons, grapes, pineapples and pears...
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sweet and ashy, with a thick fruitiness (on the palate, it's mainly peach) that pops up late in the flavor development but is all the more pronounced for it. Top-notch 2000s Bowmore, crazy good stuff.
    • Finish
      87 87
      It's only ten years old, so let's not get ahead of ourselves here, but the intense peach-and-sea-salt aroma that persists even beyond the smoke is still damn impressive.

  8. 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.
    • Nose

      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
      84 84
      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.
      Finish

      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.

  9. EvilAFI scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nicely balanced peat, smoke, and mild sweet n saltiness.

      Maritime, Putrid Smoke (smoked fish), citrus
    • Taste
      85 85
      Spicy, salty, sweet bbq, medicinal cough syrup
    • Finish
      84 84
      Heat (abv) is nice, leaving a linger of the peat and smoke with a touch of cherry.
