  2. gango4 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Partly a bit alcoholic, otherwise okay, but nothing special.
    • Nose
      At the beginning, fresh smoke and a hint of a coniferous forest. After some time sweeter wood tones are added. In between, a cooling alcoholic touch seems.
    • Taste
      Something alcoholic. Slightly maritime, slightly smoke.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the smoke remains, but not too intense, rather, the sweet influence of the barrel comes through again.

  3. Bomshanka scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      84 84
      That Bowmore specific peaty nose; sweet & sour, iodine, rubber, then the bourbon cask influences with vanilla and some green fruit, grass, slightly cardboardy.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet and sour again, peat, seaweed, orange-lemon zest then spicy and bitter herbs
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short to medium: Spices and the bitter herbs continue, drying to lemon infused black tea and ash lingering.

  4. valery77 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      87 87
      Iodine, peat, sea freshness, algae, ozone. Dried fruits. Vanilla, sweet water. Flower pollen, spices. Healing herbs. A very slight hint - coffee with milk. 22
    • Taste
      84 84
      The middle-aged man. Moderately sweet, with light acidity. Salt is also present. Spicy, smoky. 21
    • Finish
      84 84
      From medium to long. Light delicate smoke, peat motifs. In the end, there is bitterness, which almost spoils the picture. 21

      Tasty, pleasant, spicy lute, the style and character of the distillery is traced. Balance sheet - 21.

      Total - 85.

  5. LukasJakubDrabek scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly better than I expected. A few drops of water will help. (Sample-based.)
    • Nose
      Light citrus, caramel, sage, (with water) sweeter, smoked meat, smoked fish.
    • Taste
      Wood grapefruit, light smoke, earthy, (with water) dried apricot, pear, olives, unripe peach.
    • Finish
      Greens, tannins, aloe vera, ash.

  6. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    It's the typical nose of the Bowmore, with peat, bousin and vegetal notes, but it's more subtle yet, there is stone, earth and white fruit, I think of mirabelle. Iodine spring more strongly too, it's very pleasant. It is the scent of a forest after the rain, but a forest close to the sea. On the palate, the caramel mixes with peat, we smell the bourbon, an ounce of lemon, but also the juicy pear , it is refreshing. The finish is salty and rather long, the white fruits stand out.

    We really discover all the richness of Bowmore with this format.

  8. Achany scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Light smoke, salty, sweet bourbon, citrus, some nice oak, malty. Nose and taste is really nice, the finish could be longer lasting. But this is still a nice and easy going Malt.
