Bowmore Small Batch Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy A
Nose: floral violets and candlewax, a hint of pot pourri/air freshener (but not enough to put me off), window putty, sour tropical fruit, light muddy peat and a hint of pine needles.
Palate: the pine needles come back, along with sweet peat, soft vanilla cream and a touch of parma violet.
Finish: quite long, with floral smoke, and sour wood and fruit fading to a soft end.
On the eye: warm gold.
Breathe in: vanilla fudge, sea air and peat smoke, balanced beautifully by honeycomb and cinnamon spice.
Sip: mouth-watering citrus, gentle saltiness and vanilla with flakes of coconut.
Savour: the wispy smoke, bourbon vanilla and lime finish.

I'm new to scotch whiskies and this was the first bottle I picked up. It was a great price for a first bottle. For a newbie the flavor was great, I tasted some smoke and some sweetness (Vanilla mostly) which was excellent for an introduction bottle.
New to Scotch Whiskies, from the Craft Beer World, thru Bourbon. The Nose is a mixture of Vanilla and Peat. The Palate is pleasantly viscous; the Finish is light but very pleasant Smoke. My nose and palate are not very experienced and this is not the first Islay Whisky I have enjoyed. Having said that, to my taste this is a beautiful Whisky for the price, Flavorful, I enjoyed it Very much!
A big step down from the standard 12. Hints of vanilla, hints of that classic, smooth smokiness that I associate with Bowmore, otherwise, fairly rough.
Not a big fan - needs a little more smoke - or none!
Great Bowmore and epitomises balance, a little smoke, a little saltiness and some wonderful sweet vanilla notes.... YUM!
Very ordinary, a good entry level malt for those who want to start with the peated ones but not much more, very banal and lacks flavor
A very good malt, and excellent value for money.
An excellent dram which ticks all my boxes. Not harsh , easy drinking, full of flavour, caramel and BBQ smoke
This is an exceptional value for money dram. A gentle entry level Islay that is equal parts sweet/smoke. On my 3rd bottle... Just glides down effortlessly.
Like all the other Bowmores I have tasted before. A disappointment. Very little of any kind of taste, with or without water.
