  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Not very peaty, rather malty and bready, vanilla and ice cream. Quite sweet.
    • Taste
      Sweet to start, still a lot of bread and barley sugar. Strong ABV plays its part. Brine water, very salty. Some fruits as well, crystalized pear.
    • Finish
      Medium, some oak spices, still very spicy, a touch of mint, wood tannins, bread.

    Unlike Boba's Pomeranian hand-filled
    • Nose
      Scent: Lemongrass, soft flowers and grass, can only smell a touch of smoky, earthy and a little grapefruit, very atypical bourbon aroma, after the addition of water, the pear tasted out;
    • Taste
      Entrance: Yanjinyan, the taste of the sea breeze, with a little bit of savory sweetness, orange peel, after adding water, there is dried sweet mango, not so salty;
    • Finish
      The rhyme: salty sea breeze, cranberry jam, no, or salty... The aftertaste is mixed with a peat, almost undetectable...

    A somewhat closed Bowmore, who clearly wins with time and water. The bitterness is quite strong, which gives negative points.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Ashy smoke, moldy wood, gooseberries and light grapes, very fine citrus notes, mineral, some leather, fatty orange peel, with water it is very creamy sweet and vanilla comes to it
    • Taste
      89 89
      First, the musty wood and a lot of sweet citrus notes, the bright grapes are also found again, then presses first the smoke and again it is mineral, then squeeze a slightly bitter oak, also here brings water creaminess
    • Finish
      87 87
      The sweetness dominates first, then very fine smoke, the oak remains slightly bitter with the smoke and a slightly sparkling Britzeln long in the mouth, from the second sip it stays forever
