    ages well after 2 years in a closed bottle. 1 point extra, 89. 

    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.
    • Nose
      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,
      but not pushy at all. Imagine yourself on the hay loft of a seaside farm. Hints
      of ashes.
    • Taste
      Quite oily and silky soft. All kinds of citrus (lime,
      lemon and a slightly bitter pink grapefruit) and soft, sweet vanilla lock heads
      with the peat and the brine. These now truly claim their place. Evolves from
      sweet to bittersweet. Some more ashes than on the nose. Very drinkable, no
      water needed.
    • Finish
      The finish is punchy, spicy and long with a dry

  5. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A delicate and mild Bowmore.
    • Nose
      Smoky and iodine, but quite fresh. Some citrus fruit. 
    • Taste
      Oily. Soft peat. Pepper and nutmeg. Some sweet fruit notes as well. It's all very delicate.
    • Finish
      Medium long with some bitterness
