Braucht für mich kein Wasser. Wundervoller Whisky, genau mein Ding. Der Preis (70€ 02/2017) ist fair für mich.

This is the wrong whisky that GlenSikkes is refering to. He copied the notes for Br6 but this is BW6.

Note by producer;


Bottled from a small batch of casks from a single vintage, Br6 is what whisky from this distillery is about – fruity, spicy and complex. It’s more approachable than previous releases, thanks to its 50.4% ABV, but add a drop of water to see all that it has to offer.

Cask details;
Distillates from 1992 matured in five Refill Hogsheads.

Tasting Notes;

Nose
Green and grassy to start, with sweet and sour notes of orchard fruit creeping in behind. As it sits in the glass, sweet spice develops.
  • Palate

    Dryer than other Br releases, but still sweet and fruity, with vanilla, honey-drizzled lemons and a touch of freshly cut grass. Water brings out nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as sweet baked apples.

  • Finish

    Sweet vanilla fades to dry spice.

Red

This sixth batch of Bowmore is new and only arrived in Belgium in the first week of November 2016. The nice thing about this is that was composed by Mariella Romano, the Specialty Drinks ambassador that presented this to us the week before during a tasting. She was allowed to fool around with four casks from 1999. The result is a Bowmore that is quite different from the previously tasted Bw4.

The nose is tropically sweet on fruit, although less outspoken than the Bw4. This one has a lovely dirty edge that I quite appreciate. Liquorice wood, marzipan and a salty lining give it depth. So it is less clean, but a lot more interesting imho. I even get a hint of butane gas, tar and cigar ashes.

It is surpringly waxy on the palate and immediately goes down the tropical road. It is more ‘red’ if you know what I eman. I get some mango, papaya and even a couple of strawberries. The smoke is grand, even though the peat is less outspoken than on the nose. This is all about tropical fruit and I love it.

The finish is very long, smoky and sweet. After half an hour it still lingers on the tongue.

Excellent Bowmore on all levels: nose, palate and finish are all more than simply good. And while 65 EUR is still not cheap for half a liter of Bowmore, it is a lot more affordable than the Bw4. And this one is even better, in my opinion.

Nose

Gediegener Rauch eines ausgehenden Feuers, eine salzige Meeresbrise, Tabak, altes Leder, Toffee, Honig und etwas Zimt

Taste

Räucherspeck, Vanille, Zitrusfrucht, Kokosnuss, ein Hauch Salz und das alte Leder ist wieder da. Über allem liegt ein Torffeuer.

Finish

Leicht rauchig, Bourbon Vanille, schwarzer Pfefferund leicht salzig.

Comments

Ein schöner Malt bei dem die Aromen gut eingebunden sind. Trotz allem hat er leichte Ecken und Kanten die ihn sehr interessant machen.

Islay? I think it`s Heaven!
