Nose

 Ja, da ist Rauch drin. Allerdings kann ich mich recht gut und recht schnell an den Rauch gewöhnen. Eine leichte Meeresbrise, dunkle süße Zitrusfrucht wie Mandarine und etwas Eiche.

Taste

Rauch (eher Lagerfeuer), ein leichtes Prickeln, jedoch sehr kurz; extrem süß, fruchtig, ölig.

Finish
Comments

Sehr toller Malt! Leichter Rauch und dazu Sherry

Nose

Strong. The typical Bowmore scent, plus something extra.Not sure what it is.Some kind of fruit or spice. First I thought vanilla, but that's not quite it.

Taste

Typical Bowmore taste, but less salty and more oaky. Again strong. Somewhat spicier too. First peat, changing into smoke, nice. Not very fruity. Medium sweet.

Finish

Fading fast but lingering long. Somewhate dry.

Comments

I like it! For a nine year old whisky, this is quite tasteful.

Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Spicy nose with heavy peat. More than I would have expected from a Bowmore. Some menthol and the salty sea. Nice fruits, not too dark though. 

Taste

Very interesting, not burning at all. There is quite some oak now, nicely balanced with the smoke. But then again not as fruity as I would have thought. 

Finish

Not that long to be honest. Quite medium. Dry finish. Little bitterness.

Comments

Not bad at all. Quite something different than the standard Bowmore range.
