Nice smokey flavor

Nice smokey flavor
a very good combination of Sherry and smoke. very nice!
Toffee, melted white chocolate, pie crust, bread, honey, molasses and very oily.
Hatte etwas mehr erwartet. Eigentlichkein Rauch. erinnert an Gebäck.
Sherry, Karamell, leichter Rauch, Gebäck. Aromen verfliegen schnell.
Fast gar kein Raucharoma, Kekse, Gebäck. Wärmend, Gewürze. Ich glaube da kann noch mehr entdeckt werden.
Relativ leicht und kurz, etwas Alkohol, etwas bitter, Gras.
Ein rauchiger Whisky aus dem Sherry Fass. Ein Genuss.
To me I think that it is better if I have a dram of something less peaty and a little less smoky like JWB first. Then, the flavors and the sweetness tend to stick out more. Profoundly better than Bowmore 12YO
Campfire Smoke, Peat, Hint of Sweetness like maybe a semi sweet dark chocolate
Smoke, Peat (not as profound as the 12 year old), hint of raisin, hint of semi sweet dark chocolate
Peat, a little more burn than the 12 year old, very light medicinal taste. I am leaving the finishing strength set on short, although I could almost consider it medium.
Dont know why Bowmore doesnt click with me. Maybe it's too much like cough syrup? I like the sherry and peat combo, but too much cherry? Solid whisky, but not for me as a regular dram.
perfectly balanced. light peat and earth with fruity and warm sweet sherry. It's a go to for when I can't decide between a sherry bomb and a peat bomb.
little peat and coffee or black chocolate flavor
sherry and peat.
Definite sherry influence with dried fruit and oranges on the nose. Sweet and creamy with dark chocolate and bitter peels. The smoky flavors are a bit subdued but overall still an excellent and exceptionally smooth dram.
sweet and peaty
Tastes like candied apple
Slight mild round peat. Did initially notice the sweet, rich though. Flavors linger
mild. voll. holzfassnote. An der Grenze sein Geld wert zu sein.
Just too much peat for me.
A realy Good whisky
mooi volle en ronde smaak. in de afdronk een hint van turf.
Very balanced whisky with the right amount of Sherry notes and stronger smoky flavor. For my personal taste that one is located somewhere between a fruity light smoky Highland Park 12 and a heavily smoky Laphroaig Quater Cask. The only thing that bothered me was choosing the name "darkest" and adding sugar for the coloring. But a newer order of the Bowmore 15 did not have the naming "darkest" anymore - so maybe they have fixed it for the better.
Sweet and smooth. For a sherry whisky, it's light on the sherry. And also added colour. This has a light touch of a lot of flavours. Fruit, caramel, chocolate, soft smoke, slight maritime note. Well rounded. But not very adventurous. No intensity. It's a good dram for dessert and relaxation. But I wish there was more sherry flavour and no added colour.
Schon ein guter. Für mich aber der Rauch mit Sherry nicht ganz stimmig.
Verry sharp for a 15 year but nice... Real nice
Maarten from the sckouting brougt it with him
Well balanced, light peat and smoke.
Slightly sweet finish
bit too peaty for my taste and the sherry notes are underrepresented.
fairly peaty, rich
pleasant peaty, sweet, fruity, bit of sherry
ein rauchigen und intensiver Whiskey
Clearly an Islay whisky because of the nose, but surprisingly mild in flavours.
Peat enveloped in Sherry, hint of sour cherry, caramel.
Nice acidity, noticeable mineral elements, moderately hot, front to mid palate. Nicely rounded, peat, cherry, hint of chocolate.
Peat does not linger. Fruit elements cling to the palate.
memories and missing the Woody flavors. no iodine
mellowed too much, missed the chipre scent
zoet in de neus. Een beetje eik te ruiken.
fruity on the nose. water adds heavy cherry on nose. taste is dry, nutty, slight peat. water made it sweater. short finish. short lingery smoke
fein im Geschmack und angenehm rauchig
very good mix from light smoke, vanilla and sweet fruits
sweet fruits, little honey. little malt and strong vanilla, very little smoke
little oily. sweet and smooth.
Dark and intense smokey taste. Hint of dark chocolate in the aftertaste.
Sweet and rich with only faint touch of peat; almost bourbon tasting.
This a dark whisky sweet with iodine on the nose.
Iodine smoke and sweetness on the nose.
Sweet raisins cherries and warm spice on the pallate smoked to a very warming finish.
Smoked finish a lot going on among all of those sweet beginnings.
Ein wirklich guter Whisky. Preis/Leistung ist top. Leicht rauchig mit feinem Durchtritt des Sherry.
sherry, little peat and smoke, feels so good
This one has spent 12 years on 2nd fill and 3 years on oloroso casks. That, and the caramel colouring made this beautiful dark cognac colour.
They must have selected the darkest ones for this.
On the nose there's very litlle smoke for an Islay one. The smoke that is present, comes closer to bonfire, than to peat.
Dried fruits and raisins complete the nose.
The very rich and mature palet has no medical taste at all. The alcohol is perfectly in balance with the sherry and the cask wood.
The dry smooth medium finish starts of with dark fruits and prunes. Than the spice comes in an slowly starts to fade away.
Very nice in balance.
But peat lovers better leave this one for the sherry lovers.
Delightful whisky. Full of flavour and lovely blend of sherry, raisins, peat, smoke and spice
Strong aroma of sherry and dried fruit, reminiscent of Christmas pudding
The smooth sherry flavour is supplemented with a little peat, smoke and spice.
Peppery dark chocolate finish
My favorite peated whisky! Raisins and dark chocolate, good balanced peatyness at the end.
Super ausbalancierte Whisky mit mildem Rauch, schöner Süße und angenehmer Würze.
Dunkle Früchte, Schokolade, leichter Rauch
Sirupartige Süße, Sherry, angenehme Rauchigkeit
Perfekte Balance zwischen Rauchigkeit, Süße und Würze. Sehr angenehmes Mundgefühl.
Great combination of smoke and sherry. Very pleasant smoke aroma and taste in combination with sweet dark fruit. Addition of water makes it even sweeter. Love it!
Very rich, very sweet, especially for an Islay. Not one that I'd reach for on a daily basis, but one best saved for when the mood is right.
Du sherry tourbé. un régal.
Bowmore is west not east.Dont put a drop of water in it.It dies.
Not balanced. Too Smokey sherry...
i think it s overrated. it s not well balanced.
sherry cherry wood alcoholic
light dark choco, cherry with spirit, lightly peated. alcoholic. herbal
long but not that long. wood. light peat. herbal
pleasantly smokey with sweet notes
