    Colorful mixture that is not very credible for a cheap NAS. Smoke bomb ripened on sherry. Iodine hits your nose; the taste is spicy and surprisingly tasty - I had intended that he could not be good, low score, bad reviews, bad reputation. Star anise, sage, dry smoke, pretty good. Not a topper but better than expected. 46% had really been better. 83 points, the 79.3 are really too tight.

    Peaty one from Bowmore. Rather heavy, nicely combines smoke and peat with sherry sweetness.
    • Nose
      Rather soft, heavy and oily-like nose. Earthy notes, tobacco.
    • Taste
      Heavy, smoke and notes of peat, everything in more like softened, polished way. Some sherry sweetness.
    • Finish
      Smokey, but kind of soft. Medium long.

    Starts off well, the nose is great a symphony of barbecued seashore,but all spoiled by a cloying saltiness which abides and dominates.

  6. Andreas W. scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This is not a worthy successor to the Enigma for me. Too young, slightly metallic and not very intense and not really complex except for the typical Bowmore smoke. I had hoped for more and would rather go back to the Bowmore 12 or on my remnants of the Enigma back.

    Free superficial smell, smoky (secretly characteristic of Bowmore).

    Taste includes more flavors.

    The finish has disappeared very quickly.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Citrus, pepper, smoke and peat. What's more, you smell something sweet, leather and chocolate.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Pepper, smoke, peat, leather, caramel, citrus, orange, cotton candy and green apple.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Pepper and citrus fruit.

      Unfortunately the finish disappears very quickly.
