Bowmore 9 Year Old Bottling Note

Released in 2016, this is a well-Sherried single malt from the Bowmore distillery on the Isle of Islay. Whiskies matured in both bourbon and Sherry casks were used for this release, and Bowmore's distinctive smokiness still shines through.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Producer's Tasting Note:
Nose: Breathe in rich cocoa, pepper and raisins balanced with citrus tang and wisps of Islay smoke.
Palate: Complex sherry with peat smoke followed by dark fruits and sweet crème caramel.
Finish: Savour the perfect balance of sea salt and peat smoke.

Bowmore 9 Year Old Reviews

Very nice dram!

First class I had from the bottle:
Weird, damp taste. Smoke and sherry, but something that me and friends could not describe. I was disapointed.
Second class next day. I let it stay in the class fot hour or so. Still this weird taste, but not as strong. Smoke, sherry maybe some raisins. Couldn't tell becouse of that weird undefiend taste. Disapointed.

More than month later..

Taste and nose evolved with air. Sherry, smoke, plum and citrus. Leather in the after taste with some sweet sherry notes. Very happy and one of my favorites at the moment.

Open the bottle. Let it be for month or two.

mot good = bad

i love a dram with a cigar smoke background , this however is fag ash right up front , bad reviews have got it right , doesn't matter what the price or what the age , good whisky always shines through & bad whisky is always just bad ! this is the latter , bad

Don't bother

Bought this at what I thought was a reasonable price, but paying £5 would have been too much in hindsight. Sherry, peat, smoke all there, but it just doesn't work, terrible industrial aftertaste that's hard to describe. Avoid!

Good sherry peat!

This is pretty different from your standard whisky. I like it becaue it is a peated sherry influenced whisky. I managed to get this very cheaply in a supermarket but will be happy to pay the price on here for it as its unique. Would definitely consider older peated sherry influenced bowmore. Also well done for putting age on it.

Decent Enough, Just not what i thought it would be.

Not good

Not sure why this is getting good reviews, it's not good, there are a lot better available, in the same price range or cheaper & I could name a good half a dozen blended as well.

Bad , Good and Ugly

Strange at first taste, maybe even not good.... but I just finish my bottle and ready to buy another one of this DIFFERENT sherry cask expression .

Good for the price!

Soft and gently smoky. Plenty of sherry sweetness. Eminently drinkable for the price.

Not bad at all. Sherry smoke on the taste.

This is my first Bowmore (certainly not my first Islay though). I do smell and taste the Sherry influence. On the smell you don't get much smoke, but on the taste you definatly get smoke ('campfire/ashtray'). So, the combination of sherry/smoke is present and not bad at all. Is it as good as a Lagavulin or Ardbeg or Laphroaig.. No. I wouldn't pay 40 euro for it, but at €25 it is in the sweet spot. Then i should buy it again.

Very good

Very good stuff...

I can see why people give it 2/3 stars. But as a young guy of 20 this is pretty experimental! I really enjoy the sherry combined with the smoke. It reminds me of those christmas nights while its warm inside but cold outside! If you are a budget whisky explorer as I am at this moment than you should give this a try! But if you could,, buy the 15 yo darkest

For the age statement and under 30$ make this a great everyday dram spot on sherry peat brine and

Not Bad...

Not the best from Bowmore.. Disappointed to be honest

16th December 2016

What's the point? (again)

Forgot to add a rating and to say that I found the smokiness barely a gesture, if at all, with the caramel dominant.

What's the point?

Got this for £20 at Asda. What more could you ask? Quite a lot actually. For £20 you can find much better, and that's pretty damning. It's hard to know what Bowmore is thinking here. This is not a patch on the 12yo or the Tempest, regardless of the cost. If Bowmore wants to release a killer sherry edition it should concentrate on getting the Darkest 15yo right and leave the budget market well alone to those who do it far better.

Ultra bland, at best.

Best gift for holiday

I like it

9th December 2016

Poor mans 15... Obviously

Has the rich smoke expected in bowmore and plenty of flavour and mouthfeel for a 40% malt. It lacks the rich sweetness of the 15 yo darkest meaning it is unbalanced and quite dry. It is also worryingly as dark as the 15yo even though it is weaker and younger...

9th November 2016

Delicious Dram

So well balanced. I was reminded of the 15 YO Bowmore and also the 12 YO, thinking this is somewhere in-between but not as sweet as the 12. The dram is dry and has a medium to long finish. Just washing a good size slug of it round the taste buds reveals sumptuous complexity of sherry, peat smoke and oak.
