Unlike the Bicentenary or Black Bowmore, no passionfruit, no Bowmore cellar, no thick and luscious stickiness, just a straight-forward purity I've never found in a whisky. Better than the Bicentenary or Black? Let's put it differently. I love old Bowmores and their idiosyncrasies, this was different, this was special, this was impressive. I'm very, very flashed and I've had a lot of old malt in my glass. Nice that there is something like that. history in the glass.
