Bowmore 15 Year Old Darkest Review

Bowmore 15 Year Old Darkest This Bowmore 15 Year Old Darkest was tasted as part of the #LoveBowmore Twitter Tasting held last night.

#LoveBowmore Sample #2

Next up was sample #2 which was the Bowmore 15 Year Old Darkest, i've had this before, including at Auchentoshan Festival, but didn't take notes there and the bottle i had went down too well in 2011 before i'd started recording all my tasting notes.

I'm really keen on this one and think it's great value for money with a lovely gentle amount of peat and sweetness mixing together, this is one of those drams that is summed up perfectly with Nom Nom Nom

Tasting Notes & Details


My first cursory whiff caught some stretched leather rubbery notes before it mellowed to light smokiness with grape skin and touches of those little fig cakes (can never remember their name). Left in the glass for a short time it develops a cigar ash smokiness along with fruity sweetness.


Very rich and with sweetness from lots of deep dark fruits, a little plum jam on lightly toasted malt loaf, there's hints of citrus in there, with orange peel and grated dark chocolate


Super Rich and a touch salty and smoky.
