    Found this one to be not to my liking. Found the flavors didn't work well together for my tastes.

  6. Kaleva scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Decent whisky, nicely composed with noticeable sherry influence and maritime notes. Bitterness affects the palate and the aftertaste and I personally don’t quite like it although it’s not of the spoiling intensity. Anyway it’s a solid Bowmore with an affordable price tag.
    • Nose
      Gently smoky and sweet, light sherry, green apple and pear, caramel, oranges, some raisins, lemon zest, honey notes
    • Taste
      Medium-sweet, salty, slightly smoky, dark fruits (plums, figs), a lot of oranges, caramel, hazelnuts, maritime feeling
    • Finish
      Rather long, slowly getting dry, smoky and rubbery tones, slightly bitter, dark berries

    18yo that won't eat a hole all the way through your wallet.
