    [June, 2017]  Several years ago I had my last Bowmore 18-years old and found it rather weakish (83 points).  So it is time for a re-taste and when I found this offer of two bottles for 99 Euro I could not resist.  This review is on batch L172067.

    This is a great batch and my willingness to buy two bottles (of course after a small tasting sip) paid off.  So look out for batch L172067 if you like this profile...
    • Nose
      89 89
      The colour is auburn and the texture shows very late slow legs and tears. The nose is quite winey and it seems to me that they added some wine cask maturations (Bordeaux or the like) to this batch. I like that! Besides this there are the typical sherry aromas (raisins, dark chocolate), toffee (from bourbon casks) and some peat smoke too.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste confirms my guess of several different winey flavours (please keep this recipe, Bowmore!) and it is nicey balanced between the different wines, smoke and wood. And it is layered - a sign of great depth.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate with a minor bitter feeling (tannins) that is not unpleasant. The finish is very long, sweet and neither bitter nor drying. But nicely chocolatey and chewable. Water is not needed as it flattens the dram.
