Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1987 MoS

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.64 points

  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    A wonderful Bowmore! Old and elegant, harmoniously tuned and incredibly delicious! While I start this conclusion, this mild yet fine-grained and smoky ocean breeze still rises from the empty nosing glass. This Bowmore convinces with its complexity and complexity. Although not intense fruit flavors dominate the taste but this was certainly my best Bowmore I ever had in the glass. The harmonious nose whets the appetite for the first sip, the salivation during the tasting demands the next sip. This Bowmore is addictive! Unfortunately, due to the high price, I have to withdraw immediately, but this dreamy aroma will shape me the next time! This bottling receives from me highly deserved 94 points!
    • Nose
      Supple and wonderfully amber, the Bowmore rests in the glass. Small tough and oily drops dissolve in slow motion from the streaks adhering to the glass wall and take ages to reunite with the Bowmore in the glass. From afar, a light salty seaweed blows from the glass in my direction. Wow, the first nosing lifts a mild sea fragrance from the glass. A fine peat note and subtle smoke aromas rise from the sea, fruit flavors and old wood notes are added. The peaty smoke becomes more intense and covers fruity apple and banana flavors. More trophic fruits show up, sweet caramel and toffee mingle with the bowmoretypical nose. Still stick tough drops on the glass wall, the nose invites you to dream .... whisky heart, what do you want more?
    • Taste
      The first sip. What a culinary delight! Old wood flavors mingle with fine and fruity peat, harmonious smoke and an incredible creaminess. Now the old wood exudes a salty and slightly peppery pungency, the alcohol shows up and grains of salt fall on dried logs. Spicy and creamy, citrus fruits suddenly rise from the wood tones. The salivation is massively stimulated and the palate eagerly awaits the next sip!
    • Finish
      Spicy and subtly bitter woody aromas sound from the taste. The finish is dominated by a very harmonious peat-smoke note. Again and again, fruity apples and other fruits come into their own. The old wood still exudes a fine heat, the salivation does not want to end and calls for another sip. This Bowmore is definitely addictive. The perfect peat and smoke, the great tart and wooden aroma does not seem to end. A creamy feeling remains in the entire mouth area.

    I was lucky enough to try this dream drop. With this Bowmore everything fits up to the price actually everything, the nose is perfectly balanced, the refill sherry barrel covers the Brennereicharakter not too strong and brings an uncanny complexity with itself.
    Who is on Islay and has the necessary change, will find here in my eyes almost perfect about 30 years old Bowmore who seeks his equal. The taste is really outstanding, the finish is long and wonderfully balanced. - A big movie theater - !!!

  3. Dottore scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Geiler Malt and damn tasty! 95 earned points. Tip: just do not save with the sip size, this shows only the great variety of flavors.
    • Nose
      Even after 30 years surprisingly much smoke in the nose, but without drowning the fine fruit and spice notes: At the beginning of light lemon aromas, saltiness, then getting sweeter with nougat pralinees, nut mix and buttery biscuits. A slight caffeine smell hovers in the background. tropical fruits: papaya, banana, mango. The longer you smell, the more the smoke goes into the background, but it is always present. For me the perfect smokiness!
    • Taste
      Very oily. complex and very well balanced in terms of smoke, sweetness and bitterness. again citrus. Again the association of salt. Malt beer. Class spice aromas and smoke aromas explode through the nose. Great! The second sip reveals more sherry fruity notes.
    • Finish
      Not too woody and too bitter, long remaining beautiful smoke. Slight in no way unpleasant pepperiness

  4. dram-drinker scored this whisky 96 points Moderator

    A remarkable Bowmore - probably one of the smokiest Bowmore - very well balanced considering the age. Very good!

    Water is NOT recommended.
    • Nose
      Fresh, intense, a very smoky Bowmore, impressive notes of oak wood, hints of toffee, rather dry, I can detect some exotic fruits behind the smoky front such as mango and pineapples - really good!
    • Taste
      Wow, so oily, thick and creamy - smooth, great smokiness, citrusy, lemony, woody notes, subtle sweetness, espresso - great!
    • Finish
      Long and warm, still smoky and woody, zesty in the end

  5. AngeloMerten scored this whisky 98 points Newbie

    A dream of a malt!
    An interplay of flavors that one rarely has.
    I'm a fan of old refill sherry whiskys.
    That's exactly right! Brennereicharakter is not killed.

    Small drawback, the price.
    In any case, too expensive, but you will probably have to make friends: /

  6. Segens scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    600€ is a lot of money and I could only afford a sample by myself as the full bottle is out of my range. A wonderful Bowmore which I rated 96 points the first time. I would now re-assess to 93 points which is still the top under all my Islay drams (together with the Laphroaig 21OA) but the Speysiders of 1973 (not comparable I agree) are drams that are more special than this one even when it is a great dram! 
    • Nose
      A great balanced sherry Islay nose. Looking for the fly in the ointment but fortunately it is a great nose :-)

      The seasalt and smoke are surrounding the sherry cask influences dram. toffee, caramel and bacon can be recognized through the smokey dust.
    • Taste
      The cask has been chosen on the perfect mix of maturity, distillery and cask character. The salt is there, as well as the sherry where it goes no more in dried fruits like apricots and oranges . 
    • Finish
      a great long and dry finish, Maybe a tick too dry!
