The Bowmore Darkest has flourished since it gained a 15 year-old age statement. The sweet sherry notes take precedence over the peat here.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: leathery sherry notes, with 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). More sweetness developed as it sat in the glass, with jelly babies, coconut and vanilla appearing.

    Palate: 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 blackcurrant, cinnamon sugar and fruity chews developing along with spiced lebkuchen.

    Finish: dark wood, soft tar, woody spice and green apple.

    The contrast between marine notes, peat and plum pudding was really enjoyable. A treat for lovers of peat with a blanket of cask acquired fruitiness. An altogether amazing hybrid.

    Well, you can?t go wrong with an Islay malt. Perfect smokiness, oily texture, hint of toffee and saltiness. Fantastic malt, well it is Bowmore

    The perfect Malt in my opinion. The smokeyness of a good Islay Malt, combined with the sweetness from the Sherry cask. Perhaps not to everyone's liking but is exactly what I look for in a good Malt.

    Delicious, uncomplicated, dark and smokey. As one of my close friends said, "It's like drinking a lounge."
