  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A great, delicious and really good Bowmore!
    The name "Darkest" is of course nonsensical in the use of dye .... In the parameters you should get without a nice dark shade!
    • Nose
      pleasant, noble Sherryote, dark chocolate, light smoke;
    • Taste
      on arrival delicate smoke, a lot of sherry, dark chocolate; full-bodied; oily body;
    • Finish
      long, warm finish; In the end, sherry and a slight hint of salt are kept;

  2. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    quite ok but
    overall, it is too tart, too bitter, this redcurrant note
    • Nose
      Oak (old) very intense !, leather, red currant changes to the black version
    • Taste
      soft and oily on the palate
      Smoke, oak, dark berries, leather, library smell
    • Finish
      long
      sweet, old oak, bitter / tart, black currant is coming

  3. marmeladow scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very convincing in its diverse complexity with sherry, sweetness, oak, spice, dark fruits, bitter chocolate / coffee and the indispensable, not intrusive, but wonderfully rounded off Islay peat and smoke notes.
    For example, the Laphroaig PX tastes clearly at the same time and almost comes close to the various distillers editions of Lagavulin (16yo), but is significantly cheaper.
    Still a complete pleasure. I am excited to see if later bottlings can keep up the level
