Customer Rating
Bowmore 9 Year Old is the latest addition to the Islay favourite's core range. This entry-level whisky has spent all of its life maturing in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, resulting in a rich whisky with notes of cocoa, dark fruits and crème caramel, along with Bowmore's trademark smoky backbone.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)

    Nose: Salted caramel, toffee apples and burning honeysuckle – floral, sweet and softly smoky. Richer notes of sultanas and sweet pastry hide underneath along with a sprinkling of sea spray and damp beach pebbles.

    Palate: Stony and dry to start before a burst of sweet and floral barley sugar is joined by dark, damp and muddy peat. Black pepper spice and charcoal follow, balanced by sweet raisins and hints of dried berries. Sweetness builds with smoke sat in the background.

    Finish: Charcoal, singed raisins and sweet apples.

    Comment: An easy drinking combination of Bowmore's classic medium-peated Islay character and soft sherry cask. Not a sherry bomb, but nuanced and surprisingly complex.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Treacle amber.

    Nose: Breathe in rich cocoa, pepper and raisins balanced with citrus tang and wisps of Islay smoke.

    Palate: Complex sherry with peat smoke followed by dark fruits and sweet crème caramel.

    Finish: Savour the perfect balance of sea salt and peat smoke.

    Much better than expected, light on the peat, but has a nice deep sherry taste. Not a massive depth of flavour, but still very good for the price.

    I agree never really do. Bowmore took a chance. For the price point feel it's a great value worth grabbing a bottle character is spot on.

    Never really bothered much with bowmore over the years but thought I would give this a go. Lacks a bit of punch at 40% but still tasty stuff and worth every penny in my opinion - well worth a try. Easy drinking and suprisingly complex sums it up nicely
