For many people, this is the best standard bottling Bowmore, with a well-rounded palate, great complexity, and citrus, chocolate and brine mingling with the peat.

    just opened my 17yo, very impressed by the balance of this dram, nose was at first with a minute hint of sulphur but my second pouring was virtually without this but it wasn''t at all bad, rather pleasant in fact ( not that sulpur is a bad thing if it''s not dominant; ''''Take note Mr Murray... not everybody thinks you are correct on this sulphur issue Sir ! '''' the peat is very subtle in my bottle and is beautifully intergrated into the overall flavour, lemon on freshly smoked kippers, sweet, cocoa butter, slightly nutty ( like Bunnahabhain but softer) a master class in a bottle really, very challenging even for me with my 20 or so years experience of drinking world whisky. well done Bowmore....

    My girlfriends daughter bought me a two miniature box set for Christmas. One was a 12 year old, and one was a 17 year old. Both superb. The 17 is smokier, and a little smoother but both are well rounded, with a fabulous finish. I am a big fan of Bells and this is my first foray into single malts. I can say that it won't be my last, and i look forward to buying more of the Bowmore brand. Highly recommended. A must for any lover of fine scotch whiskies.

    Alex: It could well have been an old bottle - recipes change over time and as air gets to a whisky it can lose some of its smokiness. If the bottle in the bar had been open for a while or bought some years ago it probably will taste different.

    My friend and I are confused. we tried a bowmore 17yr old at a fancy hotel in Cape Town, Sth Africa. Now we bought the bottle that's illustrated above and it tastes way too smokey. I don't get it, is there a bowmore 17r old blend?? rather than a single malt?? are their other single malts from different barrels? please let us know at [email protected]

    I reckon I know my malts but the 17 yo Bowmore is one of the finest,smoothest malts I've drunk. My last bottle was a gift from one of my sons and tasted even better as a result

    I don't know the lingo, but I know what I like and Bowmore 17 is very near the top of my 'all-time best' list for scotch.

    One of the best whiskies ever created. The nose is flirtatious and a bit gentle, deceptive to what lay in store for the tongue. Citrus. Lilac. Chocolate. A burst of complexity, with an overall sense of pure Lavender, as if from your garden. The finish is deep and warm, yet very gentle. This is amazing stuff.
