Bowmore 18

Postby Patdf » Thu Apr 05, 2007 6:29 pm

Hello all,
Has anyone tried the Bowmore 18 yet. I'd like to hear about it. I enjoy the 12 yo. On one of my last posts someone recommended to try a Highland Park 12, a great suggestion it's on my keep list. Thanks for all the information, being a newbie I'm having great leadership here. Thanks all.

Think I've read other favourable reviews too. Go for it!

didn't have enough cash for the Bowmore - it 's a wee bit pricey)


he does and if you have the cash then go for it....
being new, I like to try many different scotches so if you are in anyway 'reaching' re: the 18, I'd go for other whiskies that are cheaper and good in their own right.....

Serge reviewed the new Bows on whisky fun recently. Made interesting reading. I think he went for the 15 and dissed the 18. Course you may disagree, I 'm still enjoying the 17 and have 20cl bottles of the 12 15 and another 17 to get through before I need to buy another, and having recently emptied 20cl bottles of all three, I know I'm going to enjoy them. :D

Especially when offered for free in generous quantities at a shop in soho.

the 17 is still cheaper, despite its scarcity!

Are they phasing out the 17 altogether? My local shop has a fair amount of bottles of 17 on sale for $39. They have the new bottlings of the 12 and legend, but haven't seen any new 18s arrive.

Perhaps they are clearing out the 17 first. (My local packy still has several bottles of Scapa 12.) Scoop 'em up if you like the stuff, dcb. You'll be sitting pretty when someone starts complaining that they can't get the 17 any more.

Think I read somewhere that the 17yo will be available in Taxfree shops in the future. My guess is that this "future" only last as long as the stocks?
