interesting dram. serge scored the former version seventy something which is nonsense in my even more humble opinion ;-) . or is this version so much better??? I´m sorry serge, this is a rare moment!
but it´s a little too expensive, so I´m fine with my sample, thank you!
seems to be quite polarizing stuff! let´s see:
not over sherried, thank God, cause sherry can kill bowmore imo. no cow dung here but a nice bowmore - tropical - fruits profile (passion fruit and mango) with sandalwood and other freshly polished tropical woods. a slightly ashy feeling.
the smoke is gentle and it tickles and teases my nose. good so far!
quite salty and an immediate sherry attack. the salt works fine with the sherry. still the dried fruits don´t win the race against the maracuja and mangos. (nosing it after the first sip brings out unexpected pencil shavings) second sip: same
salty - fruity feeling plus some freshly fried sardines.
medium to long, slightly peppery and still salty.
