Bowmore Enigma Bottling Note

Bowmore Enigma is a 12-year-old expression with a higher proportion of sherry matured whisky than the standard bottling.
Bottled for the travel retail market, this is rich and very drinkable.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sherry, malty toffee, biscuit oats, roast spicy pork.

Palate: Heavily sherried with a wisp of wood smoke. Lots of pepper and spice with black treacle sweetness and a hint of dark chocolate.

Finish: Short with a white pepper sweetness.

Overall: Another easy-drinking Bowmore.

    Strange effort, not recommended

    Poured one of these just after the Bowmore 12 yo. I will leave it to peace for 15 minutes, initial nose is not too promising. In fact it's awful...There is a some kind of acid medicine like smell which is not pleasant, but thank God that fades away when times ticks. But I can't help still smelling a regular 12 yo that decided to be a sherry bomb at the end, the medicinal smell stays in the background but wouldn't miss it when it wasn't there. Tasting this one is very, very smooth. It's a 40% abv, don't add water, it already lacks punch. Sweet of course, and smokey. At first very smooth and it spices up going around the mouth with a peppery sweetness finish you wouldn't expect. Finish rather short. Value for money is ok, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, wouldn't buy it again, neither would I serve to friends.It's in now way any match for the well known sherry bombs (that come at CS)

    Great value.

    I drank this as a nightcap on a recent cruise. Delicious if you like regular 12 year old Bowmore but with a little sherry added. Not as much sherry as the 15 year old but I prefer the balance of this. Got a litre at duty free for £27. An absolute bargain. If you enjoy rhe regular 12 you will enjoy this too.

    Bought this at Duty free, thought it was the regular Bowmore. I like peaty, smoky scotch, (Lagavulin being my favorite) but this just doesn't deliver. Way too much Sherry flavor, which overbalanced everything else.

    My first reaction was wow that taste very earthy. The sweetness creeps in over it. Lots of smoke in the nose. I like it very much and is quite different than the other scotches on my collection. I would definitely suggest this.

    By far the worst Bowmore I've tasted. I have fond memories of Bowmore Dusk and other ilks, but this is a let down. Poor show.

    First time to taste this Islay dram, nice balanced of flavours as what you expect from an Islay malt... If you like peaty and smoky notes in your whiskey this is the one..
