From Whiskyfun:

Bowmore 11 yo 1998/2010 (46%, Signatory Vintage for LMdW, sherry butt, cask #800191, 756 bottles) Four starsColour: pale gold. Nose: simply as flinty, mineral and ‘coastal’ as Bowmore can be, with a good deal of lemon and fresh oysters at first nosing and a very mild peatiness. The sherry kicks in after a few seconds, adding notes of leather, bitter oranges and marmalade, a little toffee and just wee touches of violets. Gets then farmier and farmier, with whiffs of horse stable. Mouth: great earthiness, roots, gentian and liquorice wood at first sips, then the ‘usual’ coastalness. Kippers, brine, samphire… Not really more peat than in the nose but it’s immensely marine. Finish: medium long, very salty, very coastal. Hints of violet sweets and cranberries again in the aftertaste – just hints. Comments: recommended if you like earthy and very briny Bowmores with moderate peat. SGP:544 - 86 points.

Colour: Old gold-amber.
Nose: Peaty, tarry, maritime, salty, with some fish, on tangerine, leather, and some orange.
Taste: Surprisingly light, fresh, juicy, peaty, maritime, and slightly tarry. The finish is medium, dry to very dry, tarry, rough. Does not stand water very well.
General Impression: A good but rather dry sherried expression of Bowmore.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Initially pungent, some varnish, once it sits with the nose, floral fragrances (violet) hiding the soft, mineral peat. Ripe, sugarcoated red apples (pomme d'amour), with some caramel.

Taste

A maritime whisky, starting with salt. Goes on a spicy tone. Violet returns in all its glory. The sherry gives its full expression, with some hints of leather, dark chocolate.

Finish

Pleasant, long. The pepper, the flowers and the chocolate remain present for some time. Grapefruit surprisingly appears afterward.

Comments

This is cask #800198, truly good whisky from a truly good cask.
