A whisky coming into its prime. This 15-year-old single malt, which spends its final three years in oloroso sherry casks, is elegantly balanced between this sherry influence and the distillery's fruit and peat characteristics – including a siren-like whisper of tropical fruit that will delight fans of older-style Bowmore. Now is the time to try Bowmore 15 Year Old, which reflects the best of the distillery's output from around the new millennium.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Billy A
A balance of leathery sherry notes and fruity touches. Ripe mangos, wine gums and Gummi Bears sit on one side; tarred ropes, burnt sugar, medicinal edges, spiced fruit and burnt raisins (the ones that puff up and go crunchy on the edges of fruit cake) sit on the other. More sweetness developed as it sat in the glass, along with hints of coconut and vanilla appearing.
Pungent fruit and peat smoke, with grapefruit, linseed oil, and some floral touches, balanced by black liquorice, green leaves and some menthol. Water brought out more sweetness, with tropical touches, blackcurrant, cinnamon sugar and fruity chews developing along with spiced lebkuchen.
Dark wood, soft tar, woody spice and green apple.
More from Bowmore
Truly wonderful--full, rich berry nose and palate. For me, neat, the finish was rather short, but not unpleasant. This usually means, for me, that the flavors are densely packed and need to be parsed with just a drop of water. I added a drop, and the flavors exploded providing a much deeper and warmer finish. This is a terrific malt, buy it!
I really enjoyed this. I found it quite a bit more smokey than the flavor profile suggests on here. I would say this in the same family as Laphroaig 10 which I currently have on stock but there's something a little more special about Bowmore that's making me really crave another bottle on my next liquor run.
Just finished a bottle of this (to get it out of the way!) and was really disappointed. Found this to be a little rough around the edges and quite sickly after a few glasses imo it's really overpriced for what it is. Quite flavoursome though tbh, I'd drink it again if offered but wouldn't go out of my way to get more. 2.5/5
This is one of those whiskies that I will always have on my shelf. Well done Bowmore!
Not a bad malt but can find others I prefer for less money. If someone poured me it I would happily drink it but probably wouldn't buy another bottle myself.
