    Body: less toffeeish than most port finishes.
    • Nose
      Less obviously smoky. More perfumy. Drier. 
    • Taste
      Smooth, light on the tongue. Develops some fruitiness.
    • Finish
      More lively. Seems crisp at first,but lingers very warmly, with a late saltiness.

    Anything but smooth. It has corners and edges where you can rub and bump. The violet note is quite dominant and on the edge of what you would not yet call "overlaying". Nevertheless, the Voyage with its maladjustment is a very exciting whisky.
    • Nose
      At first very closed, shows after a while a musty note. Loamy soil, mold fungus under old, rotten wood. Mineral. Then come sulphured fruits, a sea breeze passes by.
    • Taste
      At the beginning very intense taste of licorice lozenges with violet flavor. Fine-herb, bitter wood. Sweet honey, a pine needle infusion. Marzipan chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long and dry, still violets and a lot of tart wood.

    an unround whisky
    • Nose
      after pouring without movement: medical smell, strange for Bowmore later and with movement Salmiac lozenges (violet oil), some smoke and burned sweet dark fruit in the background slightly alcohol in the nose
    • Taste
      violet violet oil, smoke and cowshed medical grade the floral violet note is very dominant
    • Finish
      Here the medical note is dominant again on the palate violet oil slightly bitter

    Two great old Bowmores. The Dawn is the more pleasing and rounder, the Voyage the more complex and in the mouth then fuller of both. Both are beautiful representatives of port-finished or matured whiskys, in which the port notes are fully integrated, and do not look set in the beginning.

    Notes from an Online Chat Tasting (Parallel Tasting with Bowmore Dawn (3188))
    • Nose
      Closed at the beginning, some caramel and greasy smoke, as well as a little floor wax. But everything is very delicate. For this one has the feeling after standing in a wet quarry after turning off the glass. After life very light fruity with fruity caramel (is there such a thing?). Incredibly delicious, that's how my mouth is watering. Overall, the nose is stronger now, but the Dawn is still a steam hammer. Now earthy notes come up, very clean, gravel truck, with some camphor. When heated, it becomes peaty, musty peaty to be exact. Could also come from the north of the island, a little further northwest. Fully heated, the nose is full, but still a great interaction of all notes. A little old brush cleaner is now in approach, not enough to cloud the overall picture.
    • Taste
      Strong in the onset, has something in the taste of cough syrup, this ensures a strong, herbaceous note. I can not really find fruits here, but pine needle oil and all-dark honey. The alcohol is well integrated, the mouthfeel fat.
    • Finish
      Again, much longer than the Dawn, especially the much stronger alcohol warms up significantly longer. At the end only ashes on the tongue, but the way there is much longer.

    Two top whiskys, even if the "forefather" (Voyage) came along a little more noble and the following standard version more primitive, rural. So NAS should come today, that would be cool!
    • Nose
      Parallel tasting Dawn / Voyage:
      with both a dull, musty-smoky sweetness, old, moldy, mushroomy wood, behind it chocolate and nougat, water lures first more smoke and moldwood out, then slowly dark-heavy fruity notes, from dried fruit to over-ripe-sweet-wine- fermenting, the Dawn has a little more farm / cowshed, the Voyage is a bit clearer, tart in smoke and fruit
    • Taste
      both: strong, sweetish smoke, cocoa, chocolate, pepper, a little plum jam, blood orange, after a long time getting used to blackberry and blackcurrant ... Dawn gets a little more stable aroma, more chocolate (sweet), the voyage has more cocoa (herb), the smoke is drier, clearer, altogether "nobler", and a little violet
    • Finish
      looong
      Dawn: chocolate, smoke, pepper
      Voyage: cocoa, violet, smoke, liquorice, pepper
