Bowmore Dusk any good?

Postby krupnik » Tue Mar 08, 2005 4:35 pm

Hi,

I'm thinking of buying a bottle of Bowmore Dusk. I've heard conflicting reports as to it's quality, but as I really like the Islay malts I would love to try this bottling. It is quite expensive, so I wonder if anyone has any opinions on how good it is?

Thanks.

sampled almost the entire Bowmore range and i can only strongly advice you to sample it first. Bowmore has some freaky bottlings with an overpowering soap/leafy taste. its not in all their bottles though, so i would advice to sample it before you buy it in the same shop.Mine had it, but the dusk is a good dram beyond that, its very assertive and almost unique, only the Voyage has the same candy like flavor. too bad for the strong off-notes.

Yup, seconded. I had a mini of the Darkest once, and it was disgusting. Later, and I'm quite impressed, it's a really well-integrated midpeated whisky.
