Matured in an American oak hogshead, this is a full gold colour with lingering beading. A massive nose of ice cream soda, coal dust, footbaths, burnt burgers on the bbq, and even hints of play-doh and Calpol! After a while, the tell-tale Bowmore minty toffee notes appear. Tasting straight, it is sweet then maritime, with plenty of charcoal. A little water brings up exhaust fumes, tea tree oil and Eucalyptus, and old mariners oil skins. An oily mouthfeel harbours more sweetness and saltiness and a smooth-textured, medium-length finish.
