Customer Rating
A popular expression in Bowmore's ongoing range, this replaced the 17 year old, which was phased out a few years ago. Fresh, with notes of salty kippers and coal smoke.

Bowmore 18 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Light, fragrant smoke – like herbs on fire. Also butterscotch, light menthol, nectarines, brine and ferns.

    Palate: A big floral note up front followed by a prickly middle, with sweet syrup, sugared flowers and an oily mouthfeel.

    Finish: Sweet, with floral notes, lightly tannic wood and a touch of sawdust.

    Comment: This seems to be very much what Bowmore are going for – balanced smoke and wood, with a hint of the floweriness that they are known for.

    Fantastic, well balanced and great nose. Bowmore seems to have reached its perfect balance at 18 years. Quality from start to finish. This 18 year along with the Tempest expression have really put Bowmore in good stead. Both this 18 year and the Tempest are great whiskies and Bowmore will do their reputation the world of good by producing more malts to this standard and steering clear of poor efforts like their Small Batch, or the overpriced and underwhelming 12 year and 15 year Darkest expressions.
