19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.32 points

  1. schero scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    There is nothing to complain about!
    • Nose
      Blackberries, cinnamon, chocolate, subtle smoke, cocoa powder, maritime and mineral, including something reminiscent of raspberry juice
    • Taste
      Direct the sweet raspberry juice, together with slight smokiness, a little dry, the cocoa is back
    • Finish
      Everything harmonizes, oak and sweetness carry each other, when the whole has subsided, remains a little dryness

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The high alcohol content of 54.9% is very well integrated. At first I do not notice any chilling, stinging or burning in my nose. Heavy Sherrynoten in combination with a subtle campfire smoke note are immediately present. A potpourri of a variety of dark fruits forms the aromatic skeleton. Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, figs and cherries caress my nasal tip. Juicy oranges, caramel, strong pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, leather, spicy oak and maritime notes (salt) make for an exciting, varied and complex nose.
    • Taste
      Very oily and velvety soft on the palate. The high alcohol content allows a powerful and full-bodied aroma transport. After about 15-20 seconds a slight astringent effect on the palate is already noticeable. A light sweetness (caramel sweets) caresses my tongue tip at the beginning, before it gets increasingly bitter. The intense, dark sherry flavors wrap themselves in a small campfire on the beach. Also in the taste the dark forest berries are to be found of high intensity. The heavy sherry notes with plenty of leather, walnuts, oak spice, pipe tobacco and dark chocolate are gaining dominance while a small campfire continues to glow in the background. The multi-layered and balanced impression of nosing continues seamlessly here.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Sweet caramel, dark fruits, salt and light smoke start the harmonious finish. Spicy oak notes push themselves after some time more in the foreground and leave tender chocolate flavors and a noticeable dryness on the palate. The beautiful smoke will always be present in the background.

    This has quite a fruity nose with chocolate overtones and hints of brine but also a few chemical notes.
    The palate is a few points behind the nose, cinnamon mixing with various berries and a little salted caramel but its faint
    The finish is quite long and very spicy

  7. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I like it much less in my mouth than in my nose.
    • Nose
      Warm campfire smoke is there, but more of a rug than a slap in the face. Fresh berry compote, refined with Christmas spice (cinnamon, clove and cocoa). Chili chocolate and flavored black tea. Almost talisker-like Barbecuenoten.
    • Taste
      Berry acid (blackberries), rapidly spreading dryness. The smoke lies ashen on the tongue and bittert something. I miss the sweetness in the mouth something, it was replaced by plenty of wooden bitterness.
    • Finish
      Walnuts and black coffee.

  8. Dieter_W scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A Bowmore who splits something. For the price he offers simply too little. Little depth in nosing and tasting. Those looking for associations for salt and maritime notes should try it. Thank you Classic for the experience.
    • Nose
      Yes, a real board, but a dry one. Smoke is holding back gracefully, it is getting more maritime notes,
    • Taste
      a lot of barrel, dark chocolate, peppermint, raisins. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Finish
      long and cool

    interesting dram. serge scored the former version seventy something which is nonsense in my even more humble opinion ;-) . or is this version so much better???  I´m sorry serge, this is a rare moment!
    but it´s a little too expensive, so I´m fine with my sample, thank you!
    88/100
    • Nose
      seems to be quite polarizing stuff! let´s see:
      not over sherried, thank God, cause sherry can kill bowmore imo. no cow dung here but a nice bowmore - tropical - fruits profile (passion fruit and mango) with sandalwood and other freshly polished tropical woods. a slightly ashy feeling.
      the smoke is gentle and it tickles and teases my nose. good so far!
    • Taste
      quite salty and an immediate sherry attack. the salt works fine with the sherry. still the dried fruits don´t win the race against the maracuja and mangos. (nosing it after the first sip brings out unexpected pencil shavings) second sip: same
      salty - fruity feeling plus some freshly fried sardines.
    • Finish
      medium to long, slightly peppery and still salty.
