Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1994 BR

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.29 points

  1. wncvirus scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Trof, land, smoke
    Taste: Of course, quite a lot of smoke with the addition of light pepper is noticeable from the first sip. Unfortunately, for me too visible alcohol in taste. In addition is sometimes too spicy.
    Rating: 86 | 100 Of course the finish is quite long smoky but unfortunately a bit too alcoholic. For me, this position is too alcoholic and too sharp. But for lovers of spicy flavors, he will be like he found

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A good Bowmore, no doubt about that, yet rather simple. But sometimes, simple can be good!
    • Nose
      Medium smoky and peaty, lavender, lemon, sea spray, vanilla and wood.
    • Taste
      Sweet (honey) and medium peaty. Vanilla, lemon juice, a bit of strawberry, a slight note of mint.
    • Finish
      hot on chili, almost not smoky anymore. Grafepruit, lemon skin, honey.

  4. SilentStill scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    To call a good average Bowmore in the nose does not really appeal to the palate. Overall, therefore, an average Bowmore.
    • Nose
      Fairly dry in the onset, medium-strong smoke in good harmony to rather delicate vanilla aromas, plus a little lemon, surprisingly mild, pleasant woody aromas. Overall, not too varied, but pleasing.
    • Taste
      Now, this Bowmore shows the power that you expect at 56%, beautiful smoke flavors, a very slight bitterness in the mouth, but otherwise a bit one-dimensional. Even the so-discussed lavender flavors are sought in vain.
    • Finish
      Nice in length, burns well, but reveals nothing new.
