    It's pretty soft and drinkable. Actually one of my favorite Bowmores that were once a regular bottling. Very good!
    • Nose
      Smoky, salty, sea breeze, little lemony, grassy, nutty, green bananas
    • Taste
      Soft smoky and peaty, citrusy, lemony, balanced sweetness with wood notes
    • Finish
      Medium long and smooth

    I had to get used to this one, not as straight forward as other Islay drams like Ardbeg, but one to keep trying over and over again.
    It took me about 5 tries, and the first time I hated the explosion of salt in the taste, but now it's one of my favourite drams.
    • Nose
      Nutty, cinnamon. Aroma grasps you straight from the start, not a soft fruity one, but a nose opener.
    • Taste
      Little vanilla flavour, but mostly bold salty peat that holds the sides of your throath in a glowing heat.
    • Finish
      Soft, strangely soft. After the first blow of the typical Bowmore Islay taste, it cools down in your mouth and stays softly glowing in your mouth and throat.
