  3. molar3rd scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Soap, wee peat smoke, wood and liquorice candy , fennel.

    Palate: Much more smoke than you would expect only from the nose, chilly, spices, bitter sweet wood, peat, with a sweet and spicy middle, then developing into ash, salt.getting very earthy and bitter.

    Finish : Bitter wood, earth, spice, salt and smoke.

    It’s like a bitter ashtray finish. a bit weird for a Bowmore, more like a very dry Ardbeg sort of finish. Not my favourite Islay or Kintra so far.

    Quite an exceptional Bowmore, they don't come this malty normally.
    • Nose
      Porridge, malt, lime, gingerbread, vanilla, straw and peat.
    • Taste
      Much heavier peat than in the nose. Futhermore lime, malt, vanilla and gingerbread.
    • Finish
      Peat, lime, malt and grain cooky.
