  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Once again a very delicious Bowmore, tasty would be almost unfair - he has character and would rather consciously enjoy being slugged on the side like his (also delicious) little 9-year-old brother, 75 € / liter are quite appropriate.
    • Nose
      the smoke stops first, exotic-sweet fruit note - multivitamin juice (grapefruit / passion fruit slightly dominating) with milk chocolate, gingerbread spice, some peppermint ... after a while, then tasty smoked ham comes along
    • Taste
      short herb-fruity (dark cherry? blood orange?), then dark chocolate, something reminds of Sachertorte, dominoes, with some pepper, here less ham / bacon, more ash, a bit dirty
    • Finish
      long, the exotic fruit notes (passion fruit, grapefruit) sound shortly after, then pepper, ashen-bitter, an illusion of salt and bacon

    Actually, he is already doing a lot right. Varied and exciting, you taste the origin, but not boring. Less bitter, however, he should have been finally in the mouth and the finish.
    • Nose
      Freshly flavored, spicy smoke rises on fermented fruits. Leather remains in front of a tannery, old tobacco leaves. Spicy at the beginning, then becomes increasingly fruity and shows notes of plums and raisins. Many fine-seasoned spices: cloves, juniper berries, bay leaves, a little cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Currant juice and mild smoke at the beginning. Strong and dry when starting. Dark chocolate, caramel, leather and tobacco give the whisky a "dark" finish. With the time getting bitter, cinnamon is again. Reminds a little of Lindt's Christmas chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry, still smoky (cold), with a tart, almost bitter spicy note, lots of chocolate.

  3. Dieter_W scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    For me he leaves a somewhat ambiguous impression. Very nice, loud base one OA Bowmore I'm actually on bittertones. but with this Bowmore they just bother me a bit. The tart comes from the red wine barrels. I really like The Devil's Casks - Small Batch Release III. But dyed according to base. Hard to believe . If only the high price and the color were not
    • Nose
      For me, the orange peel and grapefruit dominate, followed by smoked bacon cubes.
    • Taste
      Here too the sweet grapefruit comes through after the sweetness. Again these smoked fat bacon cubes and tart liquorice.
    • Finish
      medium, an interplay between sweet and bitter.

  4. Gloin scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    On first impression, the whisky is really fun. Both in smell and taste it offers intense aromas of red and yellow fruits, sweet smoke and spicy oak. What more could you ask for.
    At second glance, however, it does not look very harmonious, artificial and artificial. The smell is scented, the taste is mixed with artificial aromas.
    This leaves a whisky that you drink good by the way, that is tasty, and that you like to refill, but you should not switch off the television ...

  7. LeChiffre scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very idiosyncratic and interesting Bowmore, slightly dirty just in the finish. I like it because of its idiosyncratic profile, even if it is not too complex. Measured by the amount of 1L, the price is currently still around 60-70 euros.
    • Nose
      87 87
      fruity; Notes of plums and raisins; very distinctive beautiful leather note (leather jacket); Tobacco; nicely integrated smoke note
      - Interesting nose, very idiosyncratic but exciting
    • Taste
      87 87
      fruity at the start; dark cherries; dark chocolate; some leather (much more subtle than in the nose); Tobacco; delicate bacon note; a delicate smoky note (ashy) resonates in the background
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium to long; bitter; Tobacco; somewhat earthy; Smoke note with hints of cold ash

    #Blindtasting
    A very unusual drop, which is not always clean in the aroma, but is fun to explore.
    • Nose
      first of all I have a full nose of burned plastic. It seems to be a candidate of its own. The sherry flavors pave the way, rather the dry variety, a strange wood chipboard aroma blocks the way down, sweet fruits, a little root vegetable. Also something old bottle flavor, something sweet metallic? I say I've never done anything like this before. Caraway fennel. Tea, if there is also some peat, I am still undecided. It is not clear, but it could be responsible for one or the other aroma.
    • Taste
      OK, no peat, sweet and fruity, sherry aromas, tart oak, a little forest honey, also a little old bottle flavor, the aroma sticks a little on the palate, sweet, slightly metallic, a hint of root vegetables.
    • Finish
      Eucalyptus, quite tart at the end, oak, sweet, earthy aromas, a little bitterness. Undefined flavors, but now actually something like clear evidence for the peat ... and there an idea begins to ripen.
