2/2 231118 Smell of peat and wood. Cardboard in the taste, there. Soft and warm and comforting, not as nuanced as the last time but I have a cold. I taste tobacco, almost cigar.
At the third tasting I have very good hard luck. Nevertheless, the Bowmore remains intact. The spicy, soft taste, with some star anise, is refined - although, with an ABV of 43%, the edge of this 18YO could be a little softer. Great dram, way too expensive.
