  1. Fight65 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Extremely balanced Bowmore that comes across as a bit watery, but otherwise has no off-mark. Would have liked to try this at cask strength.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Flowery Bowmore nose with a light, old sherry influence. Sweet aniseed notes and tropical fruits.

      B: 92
      Great initial afterwards slightly watery. Cassis liqueur, tropical fruits, leather notes, light smoke.
    • Finish
      92 92
      The finish is dominated by herbs and old fruits that last for a long time. Great experience!

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Tropical fruits and smoke, dark fruits and toffee, lives up to expectations for a 60s bowmore, very good.

  3. detachedblue scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Strong tropical fruits, toffee and smoke, very best of its kind, top-tier leather, ink, seaweeds and orangy sherry. Very salty and peaty after 10mins.
    • Taste
      Following the nose, strong tropical fruits and toffee here, strong blackcurrants, seaweeds, mellow and elegant, a bit watery, still leathery and smoky, ashy, calvados, baked apple, dark chocolates.
    • Finish
      Long, apple, toffee, chocolates, sherry and herbs.

    One of the truly few whiskies to deserve a 100 rating. Just perfect. Fruit salad bowl with exotic touches.

  5. wbarchive_618617 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    wonderfully balanced Bowmore, with a clear peat note without smokiness, which plays out its maritime notes.
    • Nose
      Flower meadow, sea breeze, white pepper, some anise, rosemary, yellow plum, some peat
    • Taste
      sweet, canned mirabelles, beautiful Torfton, camphor, pleasant saltiness
    • Finish
      medium length, fruity, turning into fruit seeds

  6. Waykid scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A really good classic.
    • Nose
      Sweet and apply, very light smoke, peppermint, a deep fruity sweetness, chalk, fireplace-smoke, medicinal notes of dentists office. Liquorice, pear, salmiak, a bit boozy but nothing disturbing.
    • Taste
      Dryer by the taste than the nose, though fruity, fresh apricot, blackcurrant berries & leaves, peppermint. A very pleasant light smoke. Round, a bit of clam and bitter and sweet oysteriness, very good.
    • Finish
      Dryish but pleasant, long.
