    A very soft Bowmore of the niergends scratch in the mouth. The famous Bowmore smokes is quite present. I like it very much :)

  7. Owidram scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Smells and taste like a sherry.

    Very straight and sharp profile. I didn't guess a wine cask here. Mouth is powerful but you feel wood rather than wine tannins.

    A bit pungent in the everlasting finish, which mixes well with high strength. Amazing whisky. Overall very elegant.

    Original notes from the label:

    On the eye rich mahogany. Breathe in cherry and chocolate with smoked bramble, baked waxed apple, almond and balanced peat smoke. Sip velvety chocolate and tangy stewed fruits with ripe plums and grape tannins. Savour cocoa, smoke-infused cherries and lingering sea salt.
