Top reviews for Bowmore 15 Year Old:

— Great smoky whisky with a long finish.

— A dram of this Bowmore 15 Year Single Malt Scotch was quite tasty. With hints of smoke and caramel on the nose, the dark chocolate and cherries compliment the palette well while the peat and sherry oak finish make this Scotch a nice sipper. The smoke and peat linger enough to notice their presence throughout but isn’t overpowering for someone who doesn’t appreciate a heavily peated pour like Ardbeg.

— Brought this up to a friend's cabin a week or two ago. First Bowmore bottling I've had and WOW, was it excellent. Among the best sherry bombs I've had. Smokey, sweet and oaky all at the same time.

Smokey and complex. Sherry finish.

Nose is nice light smoke with some sherry and caramel coming through. Initially I got a lot of toasted almonds on the palate with a lingering smoky, peaty finish.

Smooth, great balance of sweetness and smoke.

Brendan,
I did a Bowmore flight, and for whatever reason, the 15 year, was significantly harsher and more phenolic compared to the older age statements.

Nathan,
Leather and raisin on the nose. A bright sherry sweetness too. Palate is more peat than smoke and a touch fruity. Finish is dry sherry, cherries and smoke.

Big fan of peated/sherried whiskies, and the Bowmore version has a lot to offer.

James,
My absolute favorite whiskey of all time. I admit the 18-year tastes better, but I have a sentimental preference for the 15. It’s Smokey, a bit sweet, with the raisin, toffee, and chocolate notes from the sherry casks providing the lasting flavor.

My go-to scotch. I love smoke and peat and this one has just the right amount to work with any mood. Enough to satisfy without overwhelming the finer notes.

Alex,
Excellent scotch - distinctly peaty but not overwhelmingly so, and has nice caramel and sherry flavors. The 15 year is very smooth.

Andrej,
I thought it has more than 50% alcohol. I like whiskys with higher alcohol level. At least at this moment. This one last long in your moth and around. And I like that. An it is smoky, but not too much, which I like.
