    (Blind tasting)
    Very pleasant, not too complex malt to enjoy without being too big.
    • Nose
      In the nose quite fine and not particularly intense. Vanilla, tangerines with a few spices and also herbal. Will always vanilla over time. Nice.
    • Taste
      Very similar in taste, with a velvety soft mouthfeel. Again, the vanilla is dominant.
    • Finish
      Goes down like butter. The vanilla taste remains beautifully soft with a little spice and a little light fruit.

    Intensely malty, relatively easy to poke, a lot of aroma, thick, strong. A nice whisky.

    Finish: long, spices, peated smoke, grass, vanilla, pepper, dried fruits and coffee.
    Bowmore 100 proof has a very good balance between delicate peated smoke and sweetness with citrus.
