    I wonder why these largies are so underrated , I guess they suffer the comparison with the 67. Anyway this is full of candies fruits a hint of exotic fruits honey toffee spices, excellent !

    A very good Bowmore for this bottling - I still prefer the Largiemeanoch 1974 Cask 2087 as it's a bit fresher and more complex - nevertheless a very good one
    • Nose
      Intense, honey, heavy, sticky, sweet, tropical fruits, mango, pineapples, passion fruit, pencil shavings, old books, whiffs of solvent too - great, very promising
    • Taste
      Very oily, creamy, mellow, fruity, jam, cooked oranges, bananas, some spices, again hints of dried fruits and old books - very good
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, fruity, zesty, a bit peppery, just little grapefruits

    [April, 2017]  I had this during a charity tasting at Limburg.  It was bottle no. 110.The colour of this dram is amber with a texture of few late slow legs and fat tears.  There are surprisingly heavy wooden notes at the first sniff that later turn into honey-sweet aromas.  It is somewhat closed and needs significant time to open up (surprisingly some drops of water do not fasten this process).  After a while there are hints of floral and fruity aromas.

    Again a lot of wooden notes upon arrival in the mouth, but not unpleasantly.  It is first a little hot that turns into a warming feeling rather quickly.  The palate is very creamy on toffee and herbal flavours.  Not as much wood as in the nose.  Astonishingly very little fruity (for a  Bowmore) - but it had an unfortunate tasting seat too (after this dram with a literally fruity explosion https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/36609/benriach-1976).The finish is of medium length and adds no new impressions (to me) except a little unpleasant cardboardiness at the very end.  Water does not change very much in the nose but makes the palate a little more spicier (peppers).

    A nice Bowmore indeed, but I had a lot of better ones before...
