- I wonder why these largies are so underrated , I guess they suffer the comparison with the 67. Anyway this is full of candies fruits a hint of exotic fruits honey toffee spices, excellent !
- A very good Bowmore for this bottling - I still prefer the Largiemeanoch 1974 Cask 2087 as it's a bit fresher and more complex - nevertheless a very good one
Intense, honey, heavy, sticky, sweet, tropical fruits, mango, pineapples, passion fruit, pencil shavings, old books, whiffs of solvent too - great, very promising
Very oily, creamy, mellow, fruity, jam, cooked oranges, bananas, some spices, again hints of dried fruits and old books - very good
Medium long, warm, fruity, zesty, a bit peppery, just little grapefruits
- [April, 2017] I had this during a charity tasting at Limburg. It was bottle no. 110.The colour of this dram is amber with a texture of few late slow legs and fat tears. There are surprisingly heavy wooden notes at the first sniff that later turn into honey-sweet aromas. It is somewhat closed and needs significant time to open up (surprisingly some drops of water do not fasten this process). After a while there are hints of floral and fruity aromas.
Again a lot of wooden notes upon arrival in the mouth, but not unpleasantly. It is first a little hot that turns into a warming feeling rather quickly. The palate is very creamy on toffee and herbal flavours. Not as much wood as in the nose. Astonishingly very little fruity (for a Bowmore) - but it had an unfortunate tasting seat too (after this dram with a literally fruity explosion https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/36609/benriach-1976).The finish is of medium length and adds no new impressions (to me) except a little unpleasant cardboardiness at the very end. Water does not change very much in the nose but makes the palate a little more spicier (peppers).
A nice Bowmore indeed, but I had a lot of better ones before...
