Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 15-year-old
35 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.77 points
N: Soft-smoked lavender, thin dirty mechanical/sooty sweet jammy quince jelly,… Any briny ex-bourbon cask resinousness as dropped off from this particular bottle opened many years ago.
T&F: Really soft and lacking in body with a deep/faint sootiness, spent [one-use BBQ] charcoal,.. more [briny] lavender, and with a deep yet distant mineral vegetal conclusion.
C: Despite being a tired bottle, the story remains [as it has in recent years since] the same – I’m left wanting for more.
- Pretty balanced and rinkable
Malty, dry hay, little farmy, seabreeze, some iodine, whiffs of smoke, sherry notes, little meaty, ham and bacon, chocolate - not bad
Little punchy, oily, subtle sweetness, salty, little liquorice, little dried fruits, notes of sherry wood, little nutty, hints of milk chocolate, little toffee, caramel
Medium long, warm
- Little sherry influence, but more smoke. Not a well-balanced whisky for me.
