    The best Whisky I´ve ever tasted! The Bowmore 66 is a special and one time Whisky. Take your time for this incredible, inspired Whisky!
    • Nose
      A absolutely Fruit-Bomb! Tropic Fruits like Mango, Passionfruit, overripe Apricose, intensive sweetness, no peaty, a little bit smoky, extremely complex
    • Taste
      Again in the first step only tropic fruits, intensive sweetness, soft and well balanced, a little bit malty, oily, wood and oak flavours, complex
    • Finish
      long, very long, tropic fruits, intensive sweetness, wood and oak flavours, complex

    My description of this whisky is: the very best I could try so far. A magical fruit bomb, deep, complex, oily, intense! I wish to could try it again and try all the others because that is Whisky heaven for me! Remarkable, outstanding, nearly not from this world and I promise that when can try it your whole life you will remember it

    Dark gold
    What a fruit bomb! Tropical fruits of passion fruit, papaya, banana, passion fruit and pineapple in combination with a tart touch of black currant. In addition, slightly waxy honey with delicious vanilla, soft leather and only with accompanying mild spice. The wood is surprisingly subtle for 40-year barrel storage - excellent!
    Wow - but also here completely different from the nose. It starts out fruity, but then quickly becomes spicier, tart and more woody. On the tongue rather dusty and fruity with garden herbs, good wood, salt, pepper and a little chili. These notes now completely displace the fruit. There are also hints of leather, cardboard and mocha. Towards the finish it becomes even more intense, fresher and drier - also top here.
    Long - still spicy, fresh, a bit tart and enriched with bland wood parts. The fruit and delicate tea aromas are slowly fighting their way back here too. Soft, fruity and dull ending.

    [July, 2009]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 114 that I bought for 454 Euro in April, 2008.

    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 it 95++.  My notes state a flabbergasting exotic fruity profile with almost all tropical fruits one can think of.  You wish to nose this forever and you dream of walking through a tropical botanical garden full of ripe fruits and beautiful flowers.  You have to push yourself to finally drink it and then all these wonderful flavours and aromas repeat themselves on the palate.  This all comes in different layers and waves, simply adorable.  I did not found any flaw or unwanted impression.  One of the greatest whiskies I have tried so far...
