    Soapy Bowmore. Apparently bottlers think the time is ripe to market FWP as something unique.

  2. MacMenM scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A fine example of The 1980’s production of Bowmore... despite some warnings aka meanings we opened with an open mind a new bottle.. not old ‘Bowmore -ish’ but quite a nice expression. .

    Nose: Tropical fruit, some pineapple, mango mixed with some Spanish meloen. The supporting smoke brought us back to Islay, some BBQ on the beach-ish, sweet with some honey, quite some minerals.

    Taste.. tropical fruits with notes of mango, banana, some floral elements but never disturbing or dominating. Older charred woodstaves , some brine..

    Finish: Quite long, sweet fruits, Salt and yes, some brine.

    Nice, nice, always happy with this exemple of whiskyhistory.

  4. svenske2015 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Somewhere was a nest, I think: https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/159814/peats-beast-thirty-four

    But whatabout a Cognac finish here with Fiona?

    Ah, the Dramble knows, that Fiona was NOT a FW, and has some more information... https://www.thedramble.com/tastings/undisclosed-islay/fiona-macleod/
