Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 284 bottles from cask no. 1882
The colour of an old polished oak floor (almost tawny) with a good bead from this refill ex-Sherry European oak hogshead. Dentists mouthwash, medicine cabinet, bath salts and smoked cheese; fragrant bonfire with increasing wood ash notes. Becoming sweeter as it opens – fruit chews and a trace of scented bath oils – developing further with hot buttered toast a hint of hessian. A strong and salty taste with hessian and bath oils (mineral) – both dense and dry. Water increases the mineral notes, and returns the scented oils. A big flavoured, traditional Bowmore with a smooth texture and a spicy kick in the finish.
