Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1972 SV

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.11 points

  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    the nose is delicious
    but typical of Bowmore style - relatively one-dimensional
    strong but few aromas
    This continues in the mouth, but slightly dominated by wood
    the finish is very pleasant, long and exciting yes! I was in heaven
    ranking:
    1st course, 2nd nose, 3rd mouth
    • Nose
      so dark its color, so dense is its aroma ...
      like an old barrel with Paxarette
      or
      Plum with spices
      or
      Japanese plum wine over caramel pudding
      As beautiful as it smells, so much would you like to drink it
    • Taste
      for a moment there is a sweet dark plum on your tongue
      then the old barrel opens and leaves tenderly bitter wood notes
      about your tongue in your mouth
      light peat smoke
      a splash of citrus
      Slowly some paxarette comes loose from the wood
    • Finish
      pleasant and long
      fruity moist wood
      Marbled with fine bitterness and delicate sweetness
      soft fruity peat smoke
      In the end you will feel a caramelized dark ripe plum

  2. Hubertchen scored this whisky 92 points Specialist

    the previous note from ASWhisky perfectly matches my own impressions. Nothing to add except that I also found some slightly sulphury notes that were well embedded in the smoke - reminding me at some sylvester fireworks. Great whisky! 

  3. der_collector scored this whisky 94 points Expert Junior

    very complex, harmonic whisky with a barely ending echoes. Great Cinema 94 points
    • Nose
      Flower meadow, salt air, shoe polish, candied red apple, baked fruit, peat, a little Liebstöckl, anise, camphor
    • Taste
      soft, camphor, peat, sherry, prune, sweet and spicy
    • Finish
      medium-long, spicy, brown fruit, hardly any wood

  5. m884 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Fantastic nose and very fruity all around, the oloroso (I think) sherry isn`t overly dominant but still very present. 
    • Nose
      New car, oak, leather, dry sherry, red currant cake, a tad smoke, cooked raspberry, all in all relatively dry
    • Taste
      Fruity, red currant, peat, smoke, again cooked raspberry
    • Finish
      Very fruity, smoke, peat, tropical fruits, long, a bit oak with light tanins
