  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This is a small bottler from the US that doesn't exist anymore.  The few bottles they've put out were fairly priced and tend to be good quality.  This selection was by Dunacn Taylor, so the casks are quite good, and for the price I paid... it's a no brainer.  It's still a bit perfume-y, but I found it manageable, unlike the OB bottles from that era.
    • Nose
      Bowmore!  Through and through; that being said this is 80's Bowmore.  There's touch of FWP (Violets, soap, rose water etc), but this is a much better selection that showcases how the florals and Bowmore can marry up.  Hints of smoke and peat, lots of mineral-y rich notes and hints of creamy malt.
    • Taste
      Big whack of sweet malt and peat, and a bunch of violet notes. Sharp peat smoke and more floral notes start to poke in.  White flowers and more creamy malt.  The limestone notes come in towards the finish, gentle smoke rolls through.
    • Finish
      This is a big one. Long finish, smokey throughout. Creamy malt and hints of vanilla custard and creme brulee in the finish.  Gentle flowers and pepper in the finish, some hints of violets and Thrills gum (That's a Canadian thing), but nothing like the massive FWP bottles.
