    Pleasant Bowmore with a long maturation that his influence on the taste and aromas clearly expresses a gentle but firm whisky a delicious aftertaste. Mag is proudly Bowmore call a whisky sipping worth!

    Was this just the dregs in the bottom of the 17yo vat? I can't picture any blender with tastebuds saying, "Yeah that's exactly what we're going for," after sipping this stuff. There's no through line, no cohesion, no thought in the whisky. It's just a variety of reject casks dumped into a dirty bin, and suck siphoned into bottles that were laying around.

    • Nose
      Soft, sweet aromas of toffee, nuts and smoke with malt and peat supplemented by notes of chocolate, juicy apples, grain and oak.
    • Taste
      Round and firm character of lemon, biscuit, malt and peat with a smoky and earthy tone. Clear presence of spices.
    • Finish
      A soft and warm aftertaste finishes it off

    • Finish
      Medium long, peaty, smoky, rather poor with some bitterness.
