Bowmore 10 Year Old D&I Bottling Note

Originally released for the Travel Retail market, this 10 year old Bowmore single malt is a marriage of Spanish oak Sherry casks and hogsheads, resulting in a fine balance between classic coastal Islay smoke and Sherried sweetness.

Bowmore 10 Year Old - Dark & Intense 1L Reviews

Avoid at airport duty free

Somewhat disappointing for an Islay / Bowmore offering. Like many others bought it at the duty free (CDG). I am a loyal fan of Islay whiskys but this did not represent. Not a horrible whisky but certainly not a Lagavulin or Bowmore which typically decently represent Islay.

Beware of exclusive travellers specials.

This is strangely insipid. Almost no smoke but fruity and sweet. It may be dark but it's definitely not intense. Disappointed with this effort from Bowmore. I paid £38 in an airport duty free and frankly that's all it's worth.

Really nice weekday drink

I can't understand the negative reviews at all, and certainly not the 'petrochemical' note. I think it's a delicious drop, especially for a casual weekday drink. Strong note of seasalt and some caramel on the palette. I left here wondering if a dodgy batch went out because I think it's great

Nice neat drink

I am a big islay whisky drinker and owned almost every single release since 2015. This is a nice neat drink which is not as smoky but yet giving some spice essence. I disagree with all the bad reviews and I think that's quite value for money. If you wanted something more mature and intense, go for 18 or 25.

A distillery giving up on whiskey lovers to sell more bottles.

I have just been moved to email Bowmore to ask them to explain this appalling excuse for an ‘Islay’ malt. I am not usually an emailer or reviewer but when something so unpleasant assaulted my pallet (and particularly nose) I felt had to do something. Far worse than a standard cheap blend, sweet and sickly and awful on the nose. Only for Mixers and people you don’t like. Bowmore should issue a public apology for this crass (and no doubt successful) attempt to part travellers with their cash.

It's really different not bad.

Everybody is looking for sweetness , spice blah blah...wait a minute. The world is not unique and it has to have different modes ryt?.
Try this , it is surely different. If you dont like that doesnt mesnnitnis bad...your desired taste is different. So dont blame a unique whiskey! It's great and different from others.

Have faith!

I have had a loss of faith ; and then a recovery of faith.
A kind friend ( non-whisky drinker) gave me a bottle of Bowmore 10 year old. It was terrible, for all the reasons previous postings have set out. I have such fond memories of Bowmore whiskies in the past, including visits to the distillery, that I just could not believe that this whisky emanated from Bowmore.
Luckily, I had a bottle of Bowmore 12 year old with two inches of spirit remaining. I immediately sampled this to see if it was me or the Bowmore 10 was at fault in this matter. Reader - it was the 10 year old that was lacking.
The 12 year old was gorgeous. The 10 year old is just a momentary fall from grace by Bowmore. Vivat Bowmore!

Only as a mixer

Aroma and taste is very unpleasant. Gasoline, plastic, foil. Undrinkable.

Delicious! Poured over ice. I’m not keen on peaty whiskies. This salty, sweet whiskey is delicious. Doesn’t warrant the bad reviews.

Perfect sweet and smokey taste.

I read the bad reviews and there is a perfect explanation. Taste is always personal. If you love smokey Scottish Islay whiskies, this one won't let you down. A perfect balance of sweet and a strong pepper / smokey taste. One of my favourite whiskies, pure flavour. Absolutely recommended.
