    The austere fruitiness is reminiscent of old fruity Bowmores - pretty drinkable and good

      Plenty of fresh apple, pear, yellow plum, pineapple juice, some mango and passion fruit, some tobacco, honey, hints of citrus fruits, whiffs of smoke, little seabreeze and iodine - very good!
    • Taste

      Oily, creamy, lots of green fruits, honeydew, subtle sweetness, spices, herbs, some vegetables, austere notes, grapefruit, lime zest - pretty good

    Unfortunately, I can't get along with this Bowmore at all. Something overlays the smell and taste that I can't exactly define. Mostly plastic. In my opinion, it almost completely covers all other notes.
    Unfortunately, it doesn't get any better the second time you taste it.

    • Nose
      Peach, pear, peat, rubber, sour and pepper notes, ash, Granny Smith, vanilla, wet wood, hay barn, slightly stale. After standing longer it becomes fruitier and sweeter and more sugar notes emerge.

      Fruity, rubber, peat, ash, slightly tart, greasy, peach, hay, pepper, vanilla, sugared donuts, crème bruleé.
    • Finish
      Pear, apple, white grape, tart, dark chocolate, peat, ash, greasy end and very sweet, and peppery at the end.
