I do not really smell sherry here.
Indispensable to leave this Bowmore at least 30 minutes so that it begins to show all its complexity.
A bomb of lemon, citrus, papaya, passion fruit. Pineapple crystallized.
Wood, currants. Sureau. Engine oil.
Very fresh, young. A little bit of dust, but much less than in the 10yo Prestonfield bottled in the same years.
With aeration a little smoke and peat appear but are very integrated with the fruit.
On the palate it's oily, milky.
Peat is more present but still integrated.
We have honey, always lemon, grapefruit, zest. Passion fruit, mango (danao). White flower. It's sweet.
Sweet finish on the camphorated fruit, a slight smoke and pepper.
