    Andrew's Tasting Note

    Nose: oh boy... this is old-school sherried Bowmore; polished Italian leather shoes, dark milk chocolate gummy bears, Mom's Christmas cake, dried medjool dates and musty old sherry; a little maple syrup, slightly floral with peppermint bark, fruity tobacco and creosote soaked ocean piers.

    Palate: big, sherried, floral and elegant; the sherry is at once dominant but also restrained; this is sweet sherry, mingling with delicate floral smoke; maple syrup, dark milk chocolate gummy bears and peppermint bark; more Christmas cake, dried medjool dates and building nutty-earthy-spicy tones; late tobacco, polished leather and old engine oil-soaked rags; a touch tarry with creosote-treated oceanside lumber.

    Finish: long in length it starts big, sherried and moderately peaty; like the nose and palate the finish is layered, complex and balanced; a touch of late lavender accompanies the syrup, chocolate and clean smoke.

    Comment: wow, this came out of nowhere and it is superb; more of a chocolate than fruit driven Bowmore, but there is still that touch of lavender that has become post early 80s' Bowmore's signature; I would like to have seen some tropical furits, but what's here is beautiful; suspect it was a PX Sherry Puncheon.

    I found this changes a lot after a short time in an open bottle. Less damp woodsmoke, less sherry, definitely some ramped up FWP. For those new to whisky, google search Bowmore FWP Taint. This one definitely has the infamous taint, but I find it achieves a nice even balance with the sherry and woodsmoke which wafts in at the end now.. Definitely a wild ride with that over-the-top floral, lavender in your face note, but again balanced nicely against the sherry and gentle wood smoke.
