    Surprising Bowmore - a maritime but also a fruity and grassy profile - not so common

      Lots of green fruits, green apple, green banana, little leafy and grassy notes, lime, honeydew, little seabreeze, salty, spices, little herbs, hints of vanilla - quite unexpected but not bad

    Nose: Quite boozey even after lots of airtime. The notes I get are of toothpaste and a bit of Listerine mouthwash. Not a great start.

    Palate: It's on the savory side, not overly strong in flavors but what is here is savory. Barbecue sauce and oyster sauce are what come to mind most. Adding a few drops of water gets rid of any of the discernible notes leaving behind just a generic "umami"/savory flavor.

    Finish: Medium- in length. There's a little bit of smoked meat and a hint of peat.

    Conclusion: The more Bowmore I have, the more I've become convinced that sherry casks are truly the best way to express the distillery spirit. This Dorus Mor 10 year distillery bottling does nothing to change that perception. Being aged in first fill bourbon casks, I was hoping to see signs of promise that other cask maturations might do Bowmore justice. Perhaps it's because this is a distillery bottling vs. an independent bottling, but I felt that this whisky was overall pretty lackluster. The nose doesn't get us off to a great start, with notes of toothpaste and mouthwash. The palate isn't particularly flavorful with just hints of savory sauces. The finish is pleasant enough but again quite muted. Maybe I had too high of hopes for this, but in the end it's just okay. Would I buy a bottle? Maybe for like $35.

    Maritime, green fruits, grass, citrus, some sweetness, green and young but easy and pleasant.
