Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1998 DT

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.09 points

  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Bowmore 1998-2009, approx. 11 years, 46%
    Bottler: Duncan Taylor
    Expansion: sherry barrel
    Region: Islay, Scotland
    Nose: Very mineral, paired with a slightly creamy sweetness. Mild peat smoke, brittle leather and a hint of damp wood. Behind it a distant campfire, sultanas and oranges.
    Palate: oranges and grapefruit, caramel and flavored pipe tobacco. Some milk chocolate and currant, sea salt and rock sugar.
    Finish: Very long, slightly peppery and spicy. In addition orange tones and pleasant sweetness. This is followed by a lot of thyme juice and (which has now become rare at Bowmore) lavender.
    Conclusion: The thyme note at the end is very special - very exciting.
