I don't know if I should note the bottle I bought in november 2017, or what the bottle became three months later.
I was in love when I opened it (lemon, apricot, orange, peat...), but the most interresting flavours are gone... Only lemon, orange or leather stayed... The peaty nose and flavour (which were well balanced) are totally gone !

Disappointing.

(I reviewed the bottle when I opened it)

Soft Entry

Last time I tried this young Bowmore, without age statement but with a strong name, was in 2010.

The nose is soft on all kinds of citrus fruit, sweetened with loads of karamel and a lost litchi. The smoke development is soft, somewhat drowned out in the honey and sweet malt.

It is nicely oily on the palate, sweet from the first sip with a lovely salty edge and clear hints of seawater and peat. Reminds me of a smoldering fire on the beach. Actually nicely balanced if you ask me, despite the fact that it is very easy to drink (well, the first does not exclude the second, does it?).

The finish is rather short and the smoke fades quickly, yielding the floor to the sweetness again.

Soft entry level malt at a very good price (around 25 to 35 EUR where I live). There are worse things to start 2017 with. Thanks, Pat.

Dre73 gave this whisky 83 points

Een alleraardigste whisky, een prettige mildere turf, waarbij ook ruimte is voor zoetere invloeden. De eerste nipjes overheerst nog de turf (salmiak), maar daarna wordt het steeds romiger en zoeter.
Voor zijn prijs een zeer acceptabele whisky, heb genoeg whisky's gedronken die duurder waren maar minder te bieden hebben. Prima daily dram.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Turf, licht rokerig, leer, ziltig. Ook wat citrus, en honing

Taste

Eerste nip: salmiak! En turf, rokerig, peperig, tabak, houtsvuur. Ook zoet, honing, witte chocola. Na meerdere slokjes: steeds romiger, boter.

Finish

Neigt naar middellang, turf, rokerig, peperig, licht honing. Beetje bitter op het eind.

Comments

Een wat mildere geturfde whisky, waarbij het rokerige bepaald niet allesoverheersend is, maar ook ruimte voor fruitigheid (in de neus) en zoetigheid (in neus én smaak). De whisky wordt per nipje steeds wat romiger van structuur.
