    • Nose
      Dark cherry, oak, citrus and only then the peat. After a while some peach and the typical Bowmore maltiness. Eventually also lighter oloroso notes like cranberry, raspberry and plum.
    • Taste
      Cherry and prune. Peat and pepper. Some toffee as well.
    • Finish
      Now the peat wins. Quite peppery still as well. Also cranberry and cherry.

    Thanks to Tomy for this beautiful discovery.
    A nice Bowmore, maybe a little dry in the mouth, but very well done.
    • Nose
      Finely peated with lemony touches. It looks a bit like Bunna Toiteach! There is little green fruit and undergrowth.
    • Taste
      Ah! And here it is sherry, with chocolate, candied notes, a little sugar. The whole is quite fat, with notes of pears. We find a little bitterness.
    • Finish
      Powerful and persistent, with more smoke, sugar, vanilla and candied citrus.

    Very fresh and slightly peaty / smoky nose. Some notes of citrus.
    The second nose is quite vegetal.
    mouth, peat spring a little and citrus. We feel the
    sherry coming in the background with an iodine print that encompasses
    all that. It is mineral, a little dry but well built.
    The final, medium length, lingers on a fruity freshness and a hint of smoke that persists over time.

    A very good whisky!

    • Nose
      Sweet peat smoke.  Fresh blood orange peels.  Green apple pie. Wet beach sand.  Sweet pipe tobacco.  Raisin bread.
    • Taste
      Sweet, salty, and peaty (all in nice balance).  Licorice root.  Toast. Salted bitter nuts.  More of that blood orange.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy (more licorice and some eucalyptus).  Peat smoke and lingering sweetness.

  7. PierreDH scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Oscillates between a marine profile, salty, slightly iodized, a fine chocolate peat and discrete aromas typified sherry. Brown sugar, red fruits, raisins.
    • Taste
      Sweet, peaty, chocolatey. Light spicy.
    • Finish
      Go through several phases, a warm peat side, chocolate, mocha then softened, rounded even with candied red berries. Persistent bitterness

    An excellent sea sherry, very well balanced.
    • Nose
      A well-mastered blend of sherry aromas and the typical seaside side of the Bowmore: a fresh and fruity side (oranges, apples), sweetness (hands less than the Bowmore darkest) as well as nuts and chocolate and a side marked by the salt and peat.
    • Taste
      In the prolongation of the nose: the orange dominates the other fruits, but it is well balanced with the salt and a vegetable peat.
    • Finish
      Very long, not really aromas and more.
