    [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...

    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
