  1. voodoochile scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    I had the chance to taste this fantastic Whisky at a friends. Truly the best dram i´ve ever had. The spectacular colour promises a lot of Sherry notes and it doesn´t disappoint. If you ever get the chance to try this do it. Unfortunately it´s become very expensive.

    Black Bowmore 1964/1995, 49%, OB, Final edition . Also no bad whisky. In comparison with the Ardbeg Manager's Choice you will find a lot less peat here, but the sherry is all the more prominent. I would say tropical sherry. A lot of pure tropical fruit, the trademark of Bowmore from this period, mixed with the spicy sherry and (waxed) old leather. The nose is absolute top, on the taste he is a little too dry. Okay, I'm foxing (or was it mosquito-fucking?). After all, the tropical fruit is still sufficiently available to compensate. I have weighed the last three against each other for a long time and for me the Highland Park was just a bit better than this Black Bowmore, but the Ardbeg was still angry above both. Beware, the first and second batches of this Bowmore seem to be better. So even better. In the final score, the Black Bowmore finished in third place for me. Ha! 93/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/12/22/de-hoogmis/

  10. corbuso scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The nose is excellent and in the same league as the first edition, but then it becomes dry, woody to very woody and tannic.

    Tasted head to head with the first release, I found the difference between the two significant.
