- Wonderfully dirty
- that's whisky, which is why I drink whisky. A lot to discover, complex, full of character.
Immediately Bowmore, a little floral, then maritime, then a little peat, but also nice sherry flavors that are always present, but not in the foreground, a little oily linen, smells a bit of a fishing boat, with a sweeter edge that matches the Time takes the helm and allows the smoky, oily to take a back seat. The second nose takes on a little the acidity of the aroma, refreshing citrus that suddenly wants to play in the front row.
Suddenly violent start, immediately bitter notes, sherry barrel, oak, a little perfumed Bowmore-typically floral, a slight acidity that adds refreshing notes to the whisky, in the background, always present, never dominating the relatively light, but typical Bowmore peat.
long, slightly salty, peaty, maritime, leather, tobacco, the fishing boat looks over again, the sherry notes and the tart oak are there, all woven and pleasant, yet spicy.
- Tasted in 700ml.
Atrocious. On the soap. Bottle wasted.
Slight sulfur. Dried fruits. Almond, Turkish delight, violet. A touch of soap.
In the mouth it is rubber, a little soap.
It's really wasted.
Final on soap, violet ...
- Better than I remembered him. Exciting, tasty, intense.
Start with cherry, then some musty sherry, raisins, you can already feel the quite high alcohol content, the nose closes quickly, if you are not careful, the smoke is very well integrated, has a little something grassy, milk chocolate, espresso, and always again this slightly spicy herbaceous note, with time I also find approaches from the violet
very oily, creamy, sweet, but also dry, some oak, sherry notes mixed with floral notes, the smoke nestles gently, some sulfur, roasted nuts, intense, I like, very complex and exciting
a nut-violet mixture, floral, supple, then comes back to the smoke, creamy, some dark chocolate with espresso Crisp, beautiful
- True Islay splendor (oddly, one 5.5 years open, hence enough oxidized bottle)!
Smoked meat, herring, rosemary, bouillon, orange peel, celery leaves, lovage, musty, (with water) cumin, salty pickle, dill, turpentine.
Plastic, caramel, salinity, vegetable stock, (with water) orange jam, campari, orange peel, icing sugar, toffee.
Long and pleasant finish. Peat, lovage, salinity and legume soup.
