Bowmore 25 Year Old, Old Particular (Douglas Laing) Review

Bowmore 25 year Old This Bowmore 25 Year Old, Old Particular was tasted back in April 2014 on a visit to Douglas Laing HQ in Glasgow.

This is a bit special, it's got hints of Parma violets (which will cause cries of FWP from some) but i loved them as a kid and still do so it just makes me think of the chalky little sweets.

Again the 70cl seems to be gone but a few 3cl samples are still about at Master of Malt

Thanks again to Douglas Laing for having us over at their HQ and to Jan (@whiskyjan) for taking us through the whiskies.

Tasting Notes & Details


Parma Voilets take me back to my youth with edges of highland heather and sugar mixing with gentle edges of cedarwood smoke, very yummy


chalky with more parma violet sweets, almost has a similar consistency, this is right up my street


sweet, chalky, yummy
