    I really like this one, it has not got the level of tropical fruit as other Bowmore OB from the 60`s but the whole package is a good one

      My first impression is that the nose is a little distant, you really have to get your nose into the glass and take your time with this one.
      There is a little maritime peat and I suppose what you would call the classic 60`s Bowmore fruit salad profile.
      Mango, hints of pineapple, apple, nectarine and orange juice but only hints.
      Nosing it for a few minutes the peat does grow a little but the fruit overpowers it.
      Finally a few wisps of smoke

      The first thing to say there is a really deep fruit note, pineapple nectarine, fresh pineapple, stewed fruit and its really excellent but it is fighting with a dry ashy peat note and some woody bitterness.
      It then gets creamy with a few sponge cake notes and the peat really starts to grow in the mouth , now the fruit is in the background.
      It is a see saw battle but on a balance perspective it works well but the woody bitter notes docs this one a few points and it is a little too dry for my liking, still a nice dram with lots to go at.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Decent length with fruit lessening at the end the dry note remaining but by the finish not as pronounced.
