...which is a Janus-sided dram, really nice nose and taste but rather unattractive mouthfeel and finish. But worth a try...
The colour is pale straw and the texture shows early legs and late fat tears. The nose is very peaty and phenolic (for a Bowmore) and in a blind tasting I would rather guess a Port Ellen (yes, this is meant as a compliment) or Laphroaig.
The taste is barley sweet, peaty and again reminds a little of Port Ellen. Water turns the nose punchy and takes away this nice Port Ellen flavours, so I like it better when neat.
It arrives on the palate hot and not coating at all, but slightly astringent (cold ashes). The finish is rather short and unimpressive.
