  BOWMORE Bourbon 16 Y.O. 1989-2005 51.8% 

 

COLOUR: pale straw
NOSE: much, much cleaner than the Enigma. Not very boldly aromatic but extremely fresh, with an interesting mix of fresh butter, flowers from the fields and tropical fruits.
Quite some pink grapefruit, litchee syrup, pear juice... Quite some iodine at that, sea air, seaweed... But the peat is surprisingly subdued. Hints of vanilla, lactones... Very nice,
I didn't have such a "clean" and elegant (rather) young Bowmore OB since ages.
PALATE: oh, now it's very, very perfumy, with lots of Turkish delights, rosewater, gewurztraminer, rose jelly, Cologne water, incense... I'm sorry but I do not like this kind of profile,
so typical of some fairly recent Bowmores. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's flawed, just one of these ultra-perfumy Bowmores
FINISH: Long finish, getting a little bitter and very, very peppery.

NOSE: A youthful aroma with smoking peat embers.
PALATE: Dazzling, multi-layered peat offers various layers of intensity and sweetness, from Fisherman's Friend cough candy to Tyrolean smoked cheese.
FINISH: Long with excellent vanilla involvement and a dash of buttery kipper.
BALANCE: The nose promises little, but the complexity and sure-footedness of this malt is truly wonderful.

  BOWMORE Port 16 Y.O. 1991-2007 53.1% 

COLOUR: reddish, pink amber
NOSE: a very pretty mix of fresh fruits and 'Bowmore'. Sure the cassis is heavy, and so are the strawberry notes, but it goes well with the peat and the pepper. Lots of liquorice roots as well. This one works for me on the nose, and better than the older version (Bowmore Voyage).
PALATE: yes it works. Port and whisky create kind of a third dimension here, it's not like if both walked just side by side like in many Port wood finished whiskies (but this is full maturing).
FINISH: Ginger, pepper, bubblegum, ginger tonic. A success but beware, the Port is rather heavy

COLOUR: Ruby red.
NOSE: Rich stewed fruit berries, sweet black cherries and hints of bitter, dark chocolate underlined by a lighter Bowmore smokiness.
PALATE: Warm and rounded, packed full of fruit flavours' [sic] of brambles and damson jam followed by a subtle earthy peat smoke.

Producer's Tasting Note

  BOWMORE Sherry 16 Y.O. 1990-2006 53.8 %

 
COLOUR: amber
NOSE: not that different at very first nosing but then the sherry really starts to come through, with superb notes of 'yellow' (fino type), dead leaves, coffee and smoke. Great balance. Then we have the peaty, farmy notes (hay), both smoked and roasted tea (hochicha), with huge and rather unusual notes of smoked sausages arising. Barbecue? Hints of mustard as well, balsamic vinegar, salted liquorice, pipe juice, tar... Luxuriant but full of 'uprightness' at trie same time. I like it a lot.
PALATE: : just as rich but alas, some much feared notes of 'geranium jelly' shine through.
An odd fruitiness that just doesn't combine well with the peat I think and that we also had in many older 'pre-Signatory' Edradours.
Luckily, it does improve after a moment, with lots of cocoa, coffee and roasted raisins but that happens probably too late.
This palate is far from being a catastrophe but it reminds me of some other Bowmores or heavily sherried Glen Gariochs (1985 anyone?) and their offbeat perfumy notes

Serge Valentin

NOSE: Really dark whisky in both colour and nose. Burnt leather, wood smoke, prunes, heather honey, seaweed.
PALATE: Very intense, both smoke and sherry very pronounced, coconut in the finish.
OVERALL: Typical Bowmore, just a lot richer.

Non esiste luogo migliore, per una sosta, del molo di Bowmore, con la distilleria alle spalle e un infuocato tramonto sul mare davanti a sé.
Secondo una leggenda scozzese, a Bowmore il mare è rosso perché mentre il gigante Ennis (Angus) stava attraversando il Loch Indaal,
i suoi cani vennero uccisi da un drago che si era risvegliato da un sonno profondo. I visitatori che raggiungono la distilleria dalla strada principale vengono accolti dalla Round Church,elegante edificio con torre ottagonale. Si racconta che sia rotonda per impedire al diavolo di nascondersi negli angoli Come le altre distillerie di Islay, anche la Bowmore è situata in riva al mare, ma la sua cantina doganale è stata costruita sotto il livello del mare, in modo che le onde dell'Atlantico che si infrangono contro i suoi spessi muri conferiscano un gusto speciale al malto contenuto nelle botti.
La distilleria venne costruita nel 1779 e fu tra le prime a essere registrata in Scozia. Durante la seconda guerra mondiale venne utilizzata come base per gli idrovolanti della Guardia costiera.La distilleria è stata in seguito acquistata da Stanley P. Morrison nel 1963. Una delle cantine è stata trasformata in piscina e viene riscaldata dal vapore prodotto in eccesso dalla distilleria.
La Bowmore produce una vasta gamma di malti con i maltaggi interni (è una delle poche distillerie a provvedere al trattamento del proprio orzo ), essiccati in fornaci, al fuoco di torba, e invecchiati in un misto di botti di bourbon e sherry. Il colore dei malti va dall'oro chiaro all'ambra al bronzo.
