External Reviews for Bowmore Islay Darkest 15year Single Malt Scotch
96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: `CLASSIC / Highest Recommendation. The opening inhalation offers deep aromas of nutmeg oloroso Sherry dark toffee and black pepper; further aeration stirs up thrilling scents of chocolate- covered cherries tobacco smoke sea brine paraffin praline and cedar box?a textbook Islay/sherry perfume. Palate entry is winey concentrated and stunningly Sherry-like; at midpalate the taste profile expands to include dark honey butterscotch old oak vanilla extract and cocoa bean. Concludes delicately and as sweet as honey. If you want a hint of what the legendary but no longer available Black Bowmore 1964 was like pick up a bottle of Darkest.`
Matured in an inspired combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it's the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Years Old 'Darkest', one of the most beautifully balanced Bowmores, the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, and its warming finish.
