Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1968

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.81 points

  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    both the orange and the chocolate remain subtle
    and underline the noble character of this beautiful whisky

    yes! I am in heaven
    93 out of 100 points

    ranking:
    1st mouth, 1st finish, 2nd nose
    • Nose
      You cut up an orange
      Her sweet and sour juice runs over the wood
      fresh mint and chocolate melt in the pot
      You stir in the juice slowly
      a dash of bright 18y Macallan
      still warm, you try the mix
    • Taste
      smoke can be so tender and seductive
      soft and supple to your tongue
      the orange tingles
      on your palate develops the fine aroma of mint
      Chocolate accompanies her
      like a gentleman with flowers .. (I think he also has violets in the bouquet)
    • Finish
      long
      Smoke and tobacco flow warming in the throat
      Orange and chocolate remain subtle
      fine woody bitterness makes the finish apart
      towards the end finest malt and fruit sweetness with tobacco note

  4. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2017/06/15/tomoh-anniversary-drams/

    N: [Tasted blind]. Most bizarre in that it smells of my dad! Jokes aside, we all know our parents have a distinct scent and mine rather poetically omits the aroma of 1964 Bowmore! Back on earth, this is bready with extraordinarily compacted cereals, putty, vanilla, tutti-fruity, a hint of creamy peat, a touch of farm. I find the profile neither particularly unfamiliar nor overtly striking/reminiscent, and yet there is something unusual/rare & yet ‘just so’. We must be in the 1970s, even probably the 1960s.
    T: More compacted cereal fruits and a time-stretched [long summer days], lip-smacking developmental journey. 
    F: Concludes eventually with sweet-bitter-dry bourbon vanilla, but what happens before the end-goal is rather,.. ideal. 
    C: I cant place this at all. Theres nothing out of the ordinary in terms of alarming finishes, outrageous hyper-notes, bombs, tricks,.. Everything is [old skool] 'just so' and yet im not sure ive quite a reference for it - so actually in that way it is indeed 'out of the ordinary'. Revealed: Bowmore. The 'old man' asks me whether id ever had '60's Bowmore before. I wasnt sure i had, and i can confirm that this was my first.My score wavered between A- and A so today then: an A[-].

  5. hs305 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2001]  I had my first dram during a Jim McEwan tasting while cruising the river Rhine aboard MS Godesia.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 92,5.  My notes state an adorable fruity nose centered around blackcurrant aromas.  The body is well-balanced with fruity, peaty and maritime flavours.  The finish is okay (whatever this meant to me back then - I guess it is medium as I stated short or long finishes with other drams in that line-up).

  6. Marius scored this whisky 99 points Member Senior

    This is my favourite whisky and will most likely be until i die. Fabulous exotic fruits and heavenly delicate smoke. It can't get much better than this on the nose :)

  8. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A limited edition 32 year old bottling of 1968 Bowmore from the turn of

    the millenium. It was bottled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The

    Stanley P Morrison company, owners of Bowmore since 1963.

  9. Medea scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    wonderful nose: oldschool, maritime-spicy, not as one-sided fruity as the DT 66er. Very fresh, a touch of smoke. Fresh with a little vanilla ice cream.
    Gaumn: silky-smooth aromas of exotic fruits. Passion fruit, spicy, creamy, some salt. Full-bodied with charming barrel flavors, also fresh, nice and light, spicysweet. A hint of perfume, vanilla. Very long and not a bit tired, becomes more and more fruity with time.
