However no typical Bowmore at all in my opinion.
Notes from a blind tasting!Starts a little restrained at first. Takes quite a while in the glass to develop its aroma. Then sherry showing up. Spicy, intense. Bringing in a minimal sour, sulfuric note. Alcohol staying behind, hardly noticeable. The nose appears kinda mature, the years have markedly rounded it off. In the back hides a light peat smoke. No complexity monster in the nose, but all aromas very well interwoven.
Smooth start. Too smooth for me. Leaking some power. Then suddenly numb, sour oakiness. A strange, surprisingly sweet note showing up. Turns out to be the sulfur, that is pretty dominant now. Not as smoky as the nose. Vanilla and caramel makes me wonder if this could be a sherry finish. Missing complexity in the taste.
Not that long. A little peat smoke lingering on. So does the sulfur.
