Nose

Quite smoky on bonfire, grilled meat, cigarette ash. Some strawberry marmelade and orange zest. Nice.

Taste

Intense, packed with flavours and rich. Obviously young, spicy, but there is also a lot of nice red fruits, chocolate, toffee and smole. Wild, but really entertaining.

Finish

Quite long, spicy, on chilli, pepper, alcohol and sweet fruity marmelade.

Comments

Really decent and quite complex, and I rather tend to avoid Bowmore and peat/smoke in general.

Nose

A soft sherry influence with ample red fruit. Smells like the effect in wine cask maturation too. Otherwise, there's not much there: a salty sea breeze and some vague mint. Later: cocao and orange. There is hardly any peat in the nose. 

Taste

Very woody and spicy, as if I am drinking liquid wood. Sorry, too modern in style I guess. The wood and spices (clove, nutmeg) are just too over expressive. There is hardly anything else to be detected, only some vague red fruits.

Finish

Luckily not that long, again very spicy and woody, and a little on sherry and red fruit. 

Comments

Not my style. Over-infused wood influences are not a pre in my book. Sorry.

Cheers! Paul

Nose

Süßlicher Rauch, alkoholische schärfe, leicht fruchtig, Erdbeerkonfitüre, er ist überraschend zurückhaltend, nach einer Weile kommen Tabak, Leder und Eichenaromen

Taste

Sehr kräftig, herb, alkoholisch, scharf, Chili, süßlicher Rauch, leicht fruchtig, im Gaumen präsenter als in der Nase dennoch bleibt hier vieles verborgen, er wirkt unreif, jung und unausgewogen, Rauch und Aromen sind wie hinter einer Nebelbank lediglich zu erahnen, es dringt kaum etwas nach vorne

Finish

Mittellang

Comments

Nachdem ich nun schon einige Whiskys von Bowmore probiert habe kann ich mich einfach nicht mit dieser Brennerei anfreunden. Diese alkoholische Note und schärfe ist gänzlich fehl am Platz. Die Aromen sind stumpf, werden unterdrückt oder lassen sich nur erahnen. Gerade bei diesem Whisky hier hätte ich mehr erwartetet bin aber im Endeffekt nicht überrascht. Einzig positive Eigenschaft bleibt wie so oft der süßlich aromatische Rauch - 25.03.2017

Tourbe modérée. Sherry assez profond mais pas très gourmand. Il y a quand même du chocolat et du malt. Pas très explosif. Quelques notes d'alcool. En bouche, intense, sherry, épices. Cela pourrait être plus enveloppant. Finale un peu rêche. Avec un peu d'eau, plus chaleureux sur le toffee au nez, mais cette tourbe est un peu verte et s'intègre assez mal. Du miel et du vin cuit. En bouche, du chocolat au lait en plus. Seul petit trésor dégoté dans un coin : des fruits exotiques quand on passe un verre d'eau juste après. Franchement vu le prix de la bouteille en plus, c'est décevant - je me demande ce que j'aurais dit à l'aveugle.

Enthousiasme 2/5

Nose

Fine harmony between peat and sherry. Leather, caramel, green tea, grass, barley, wood. 

Taste

Peat is dominant while the sherry is a bit in the background. Nuts, smoke, wood, sherry. 

Finish

Salty pebbles, leather, wood, tar.

Comments

A little too little sherry in the taste. I hoped for more balance (as in the nose). I prefer batch 1 over this.

A lot of sherry, nuts, earthy, fine oak all combined with peat, smoke, some salt. The ABV is perfect. A wonderful Bowmore and I am glad to have some bottles of Laimrig left. Don't see the reason for the price tag
