A discontinued batch of 15YO Bowmore that tasted years ago (79pt). Pleasantly surprise when found this last bottle standing quietly at the back of one of the cabinet.
N- Rubber tube with distant bonfire smokes, nutmeg syrup with brine-y rocks and minerals. Gushes of maritime smokes before some floral, chocolate and brown sugar developed. (86/20)
P- It has this sort of feather light 'neutral' texture, but well filled with nutmeg, spices and dried fruits. Sourish lime peels with smokes at retro-hale. Sweet, bitter and naturally dry with some astringency. (85/19)
F- Medium, does improve at subsequent sips with tart berries, dried fruit, green tea white chocolate and gentle brine smokes emerged. (86/20)
Weighted Rate- 79pt
