Farbe: Vol­les Gold
Nase: Tabak, Leder, nas­ser Papp­kar­ton und eine feine Würze aus Zimt, Kar­da­mon, Paprika, Meer­salz und wei­ßem Pfef­fer steht im Glas. Kohle, Asche, Torf, Sport­ban­da­gen und alte Auto­rei­fen gehen Hand in Hand mit  rotem Früch­te­tee, Kara­mell, Honig und Vanille. Yes!
Geschmack: Cremig-runder Kör­per mit sehr viel Würze! Fri­sche, saf­tige Minze, Salz, Unmen­gen von schwar­zem Pfef­fer, Chili, roter Paprika und dezen­ten Frucht­nu­an­cen von Oran­gen und roten Äpfeln. Dazu Leder, Tabak, Man­deln und Holz. Eine Fri­sche aus Minze und Euka­lyp­tus sowie medi­zi­ni­sche Noten gehen mit über ins Finish.
Finish: Lang – frisch und wür­zig mit Mus­kat, Kar­da­mom, Zimt, Salz, Pfef­fer und Euka­lyp­tus; grüne, fri­sche Noten von See­tang, Algen, jod­hal­ti­gem Rauch und Torf kle­ben auf der Zunge. Mit der Zeit immer cre­mi­ger wer­dend mit auf­kom­men­den Schoko- und Kakao­no­ten.
Bemer­kung: Der Abgang ist schon unver­schämt gut!
95 Punkte (Nase: 95 / Geschmack: 95 / Finish: 96)

Nose

Eine dichte, verschlossene Nase. Er braucht etwas Zeit zum Atmen, dann gibt er Aromen von Sultaninen, Orangen und schwarzem Pfeffer preis. Im Hintergrund ein Hauch Rauch. Durch längeres Atmen Aromen von Vanille und frisch gebackenen Plätzchen.

Taste

Startet recht alkoholisch mit Noten von Karamell, Pflaumen, dunkle Beeren und etwas Orange. Komplex und intensiv. Sehr lecker. Wenn der Alkohol verflogen ist öffnen sich Aromen von frischen Walnüssen und Schokolade.

Finish

Langer, intensiver Abgang mit viel Dürrobst und gegen Ende bitteres Holz. Im Hintergrund ein geringer Hauch von frischen Walnüssen.

Comments

Fazit:

93/100 Punkten – „nice old Bowmore“. Der 30th Anniversary bietet viele Aromen aus „der guten alten Zeit“ wie Walnüsse und bitteres Holz im Abgang. Dieser Whisky ist etwas besonderes und verdient eine gebührende Verkostung mit viel Zeit. Dies dankt er mit einer fantastischen Entwicklung! Toll.

Bowmore 30yo 1963/1993 'Anniversary Edition' (50%, OB, 600 bottles) Star5.jpg Colour: gold. Nose: ha-ha, there’s no fruity explosion at all (we’re not in 1968), rather some huge medicinal notes combined with wood and coal ashes. There’s quite some camphor, whiffs of crushed eucalyptus leaves, mentholated cigarettes (remember Kool?) and, once again, quite some fresh walnuts. Are fresh walnuts the missing link between antique and new-style Bowmores? With water: more tropical fruits and more manure. It became even ‘wider’. Fab! Mouth (neat): fantastically medicinal, with something that really reminds me of the stupendous old pear-shaped 8yo (the bottle was pear-shaped, not the whisky). Cough drops, oysters, tangerine zests, walnuts (yes), almonds, salt, liquorice, mint, kippers… And loads and loads of other flavours. Sorry, the anti-maltoporn brigade is here, let’s stop it. It doesn’t need water on the palate anyway. Finish: magnificently medicinal and resinous. Comments: probably the most medicinal old Bowmore I could try. A work of art. SGP:456 - 94 points. (and thanks to the Gentlemen du Whisky!)

A 30 year old Bowmore bottled in 1963, the year that Stanley Morrison bought the company, and released as a celebration of the 30th year of his ownership.
