  • Intro:

    "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." - The Whiskey Exchange. So we have a young Bowmore with some time in a sherry cask. I'm wary, but interested. Let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Prune, apple, effervescent acetone. Plum, sweet floral note. Fake cherry and fake respberry. Fake fruit, almost gummy worm like.

  • Taste:

    Thin, no heat. Apricot, apple. Pear, light leather. Faint toffee. If there is peat, it is dim.

  • Finish:

    Short, a bit of heat. Apricot, sulfur, pepper, honey, vanilla.

  • Overall:

    Not great, not exceptional. Unremarkable, at the best.

  • Score:

    4
