Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 2002

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.69 points

  1. Hemdl scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Great barrel, great malt. Beautiful sherry flavors, the whole in the smoky-leathery robe of Bowmore. Strong and charming at the same time. What should we complain about here? Basically just that you can hardly get at these bottles and, apart from the hand-filled unfortunately only such barrels of Bowmore reach the "free market".
    • Nose
      In the nose you will find dried fruit, candied nuts and a slightly sourish note, which disappears after a short time in the glass. Behind it, an old leather sofa in front of the open fireplace, leather in front of dark peat smoke. With a little more time in the glass, the malt is a little sweeter and more pleasing overall. A wonderful sherry-smoke mixture is created. The alcohol is always present as a fresh note in the background, but does not bother.
    • Taste
      For the cask strength a milder start, but still mouth-filling. Immediately many notes from the nose are palpable on the tongue. Leathery-smoky peat notes. Strong nuts coated with light honey. The dry fruit mixture is also there, but much sweeter than the nose. Some dark chocolate, but with extremely high cocoa content.
    • Finish
      In the long finish surprisingly creamy, soft and sweet. The sherry notes fade after a while, leaving room for some smoke and tannins.

  2. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 93 points Specialist

    Incredibly rich and intense nose, that becomes even more complex with a drop of water and a few minutes in the glass. Syrupy-sweet sherry fruits are in abundance (all sorts of berries, cherries and a few tropical varieties too), wonderfully balanced by the trademark Bowmore soft peat, salty sea air and creamy honey. A true sherry/peat monster that manages to retain a remarkably elegant and complex profile. Remarkably similar profile on the palate, again with the peated spirit and sweet sherry cask working together in harmony. Darker notes also make themselves known, with ground coffee beans, dark chocolate, and manuka honey coming through, alongside a touch of fresh mint keeping things wonderfully alive and vibrant. The finish is long and warming, with soft, sweet and creamy peat smoke delivering a near-perfect balance. I tried this initially alongside the 15yo Darkest and Devil's Cask III and it blew both totally out of the water (and neither of them were anything other than very good drams). I'm now on my 4th dram from the bottle, and I still find this as amazing as the first dram I tried straight from the cask at the distillery. Patience and a drop of water are richly rewarded. A stunning dram and proof that distilleries do still have great casks in their warehouses. The best Bowmore I've had the pleasure of trying to date!
