    It has an oily viscosity and a high-intensity bouquet. I have flavors of vanilla, hay, citrus, creme brulee and shortbread. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. The alcohol is very well integrated and it has a medium body.

    I'm having a hard time with this Bowmore. plastic with fruit. comic touch. I have to try again to see if my glass was okay...
    2nd dram and it remains a comic note. Sorry, an unexpectedly weaker Bowmore for me.

    Quite grainy. Somewhat peaty. Somewhat exotic fruits, especially with air. A bit of wood. Slight caramelized sweetness. Not mineral. No violets. Tastes good!
