Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1968
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.20 points
- Exceptional. Very fruity (apricot, raisin, orange, peach...) very mineral, complex, changing over times.
Open with oily, savoury fried pastry with trademark sea breeze,
underlay with fine bourbon cask characters. Exotic fruits, lychee,
rambutan, grapefruits and orange emerge after the layer of warm wood. P- Creamy, velvet and well rounded, good weight on the liquid with
juicy sweet tropical fruits, flavoured with dash of spices from the oak.
F- Smooth with smokes arise at the back of palate. Oily pastry come back with warming spices. Long and mouth coating.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- Lovely stuff, even though it plays only two cards: fruits and oak. In my memory the 1968 Anniversary Edition was slightly better.
Typical '68 fruit basket, albeit a little delicate, especially on tropical fruits. Passion fruit, pink grapefruit, tangerine, kumquat, kiwi... Very silky. Freshly crushed mint and a little eucalyptus oil as well. Rosehip. Cedar wood. Something of diesel oil in the background. Very nice to say the least.
Medium body, on grapefruit / kumquat to start with, then green banana and papaya. Fresh and slightly sourish, due to the citrus and the oak. Grows spicier (nutmeg, clove, pepper). Aniseed and mint again. Faint mineral notes too.
Medium long, still very fruity but in a more zesty way, with oak growing stronger.
