Bowmore No.1 Bottling Note

Bowmore No.1 is produced using single malt Scotch whisky drawn exclusively from first-fill bourbon casks, imparting a creamy sweetness which blends well with the robust Islay smoke that Bowmore is known for.

Islay Tasting Set

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Nutella on brown bread, sea salt and a hint of lemon zest.

Palate: Vanilla notes are up front and sweet (though earthy vanilla pod does appear after a minute). Plenty of coastal peat smoke.

Finish: Lingering smokiness.

Bowmore No.1 Reviews


First sniff of this reminded me of Izal medicated toilet paper, and now I can’t drink it without that in my mind. Carbolic acid smell. Will have to mix with something to get rid

Sweat and smokey but lacking full flavour

This one wasn't really for me. Sweet and lightly smoky on the nose but had horrible burn and not a very long after taste, was really missing the depths of flavour I was looking for on this, I paid £30 for a bottle but I wouldn't pay again unless it was on offer maybe

Full of vanilla, full of smoke, but weak on general.

Full of vanilla, full of smoke, but weak on general. Value for money. It was £20 :)

Nice but not nasty

Early in my journey, I tried this and loved it, but as my palette develops, I find this one watery and lacking and great flavours or solid smokiness. A nice drop but this will be the last bottle I buy. Should have stuck with the Talisker for a similar price. For a few dollars more just buy Johnnie Green.

Very poor, overoaked.

I don't like this one. It tastes of the cheap spirits they had lying around that ought to have gone to be blended but that instead were heavily oaked to cover the imperfections and then bottled. I normally like Islays, with the exception of Laphroaig, which is rather phenolic for my taste. The others are delicious. This isn't, I finished up losing it in blended whisky.

Save your money

This is a fairly cheap single malt. And in this case you absolutely get what you pay for. Smokiness alone does not a good single malt make. I received this bottle as a gift. I would be angry if I had paid for it myself. I have given it several tries and sad to say, the remains have of this bottle will be coating my kitchen sink drain pipe. Not even worth half a star rating.

Slight peat, loads of harsh aftertaste

I love my Islay whiskies. Comparing this whisky to Laphroaig 10 is ludicrous, Laphroaig 10 is SOOOO much better in everyway than Bowmore No1 on a similar price point. I've tried Bowmore before and at the time assumed my palate hadnt developed to the peat. However after revisiting, slightly peated with some creamy notes but mostly find a harsh alcohol after taste I can't shift. I want to like it because it's peated. I've never had a Islay whisky I've not liked yet and I'm not saying I don't like it. I just know there's souch better for the similar price point out there.

A desaster! Where is the old Bowmore strength? Sloppy watery melancholy!
