Bowmore 2003 (Whisky-Doris)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Bowmore

Les Bowmore 2003 sont arrivés… This one is sold by Whisky-Doris.

 

Bowmore 2003 Whisky-DorisBowmore 10 yo 2003 (53,4%, Whisky-Doris 2013, bourbon cask #20188, 179 btl.)

Nose: could this one be slightly more aromatic than the Bowmore 2003 selected by Whisky-Fässle? Slightly bigger lemon notes, including the nice aroma of lemon balm (I mean the herb, not the waxy stuff). Same mineral notes, wet stones, chalk and olives. Very very difficult to set them apart after a while. Mouth: same perfect mixture of brine, lemons, peat and sweetness. Punchy but nicely drinkable. Maritime notes. Sour fruits. Hay and pepper. Finish: long, tequila-ish, or mescal given the smoke. No worm though.

So, let’s repeat that recent production at Bowmore was good, clean and enjoyable. Not too difficult either. Around € 80. Sold out.

Score: 88/100
