    Voluminoeser Bowmore with an interesting change from nose to palate and each with a decent depth. So pronounced mint notes are rare. In combination with the pipe smoke a delicious thing.
    • Nose
      Fresh (not dry) pancake with a good portion of butter, mild tobacco leaves, in the back becoming dry (earthy) and smoky.
    • Taste
      Pipe tobacco smoke, spicy mint. Soft on the palate with full body. After a few minutes floral-fragrant flavors mingle with the still very strong present mint smoke note.
    • Finish
      Present and powerful, almost sharp with quite respectable length.

  5. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: beautiful complex interaction of peat smoke, grapefruit and sherry, with a very light note of lavender (does not bother), lube oil, sweet dried fruit and cocoa
    Taste: Sherry is clear, creamy and fruity, then a wave of sweet peat and some oak
    Finish: long, peat with sherry, some salt and fruit

    delicious part, very complex and exciting.
