  3. LDB scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very complex and intensely sweet.
    • Nose

      "Floral Smoke". Sweetness emerges, like from lavender honey.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Peppery oil, sweet blood oranges, campfire pretzel sticks. And then an overwhelming sweetness that could have come from Madeira wine. Intense and complex.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Alternates between smoke, sweetness and orange.

    Bowmore 1998-2014, 16 years, 56.4% alc. Bottler: Hart Brothers Region: Islay, Scotland
    Nose: Flowery, fruity and with coastal flavors. Lavender, sage and citrus fruit served with whisky, vanilla cream and forest honey. The vanilla remains in the nose for a while, then come sea salt, sour cream and peat smoke, which is sweet with a pinch of ash.
    Palate: Tropical fruits, vanilla and then earthy and mineral aromas. Much peat smoke, campfire, ashes and spices, including salt and green pepper.
    Finish: Long, mineral and peaty. Again ashes, but also medical notes. Behind them limes.
    Conclusion: Wonderful nose, the palate is somewhat simpler. Very nice dram!
    87/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 120 €) I thank the sales department (HEB) for the sample!
