Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1998 CC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.50 points

  1. hartist scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Correct dram; there is nothing exceptional here.
    • Nose
      Fresh, it reflects the Bowmore style: maritime scents (iodine, fishing port), earthy peat, subtle sweet notes (vanilla, toffee), some touches of floral seaside herbs.
    • Taste
      Simple, clean and well done but without originality: ashen smoke, sweet notes (vanilla and honeycombed cereals with white heather honey), hot spices (pepper).
    • Finish
      Medium to long on a spicy smoke that decreases fairly quickly but leaving a pleasant memory.

  2. Gronqvist scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet elements smokiness, cereal, vanilla, caramel and peaty soil.
    • Taste
      Barley, fruit, peat, sweet vanilla, honey, krydderie, salt, smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium finish, complex, with some oakiness, spicy pepper and smoke.
