A solid, SOLID Bowmore (not in the literal sense ofc.). I'm very tempted to cough up the 80-ish clams for a bottle. It's a distillate-forward whisky for sure, so: me happy. The cask is doing its part, but not much vanilla/coconut is to be found here. Mostly, it's showcasing the distillery's style: pu-erh tea, wet leaves, a bit of fresh tobacco and bananas. Fresh effervescent saltiness. The form is impressive, nothing is happening too suddenly, it moves forward with ease and medium pacing into a long finish. An 88 mark without breaking a sweat. In conclusion: más, por favor!
