great bourbon Bowmore profile, if you're in to that. ;-)
- Great Bowmore, no two ways about it. Reminds me of a
crossbreed of the Bowmore 2002 for Dramlot and the first Smoking Buffalo, but
with more depth and sexy curves.
The nose is very soft, despite the relatively high
ABV. Bittersweet. Loads of citrus, as well as Boskoop apples and gooseberries.
Graeffe (light brown) sugar. The peat and medicinal touch are certainly there,
