  4. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    exclusively for the 2009 Islay Festival. One of only 900 bottles. Each
    bottle is individually numbered and signed by the distillery manager. Distilled in June 1999. A marriage of five different casks: one Sherry, two Bourbon and two Bordeaux
    wine casks.

  5. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is too sharp for me. If you put water in it, it only gets worse.
    • Nose
      Strong, with lots of alcohol and vinegar. And hints of peat.
    • Taste
      Powerful taste of alcohol. The taste of winey notes is definitely there. I can find good peppery attack here too.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, with lots of alcohol.

  6. magic_slim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A good example how tasty young Bowmore can be. Recommended.
    • Nose
      Tingling. An interesting mixture of red wine and peat smoke dominates at the beginning. Later on some more complex fruity notes are coming up - plum butter and ripe mangos. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Warming, clean and sharp alcohol. Again a mixture of red wine or red grapes and peat. Mirabelle schnapps. Needs water!
    • Finish
      Medium long but after the second swallow it will keep you warm from deep inside for a very long time. Wine, peat and hot pepper.
