      Nice, clean Bowmore. Pleasant ashy smoke that combines great with the sweetness of candied fruits, vanilla and flowers. Then there are notes of fresh, wet wood.
      One hardly notices the well integrated “full proof” alcohol.
      Make it fun to sniff.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste confirms what has been sniffed out. The malty sweetness dominates
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long, herbal finish which, together with the strong, sweet vanilla notes, wrestles for the sovereignty of interpretation

    Very delicious, just whipped candy. Christmas, for sweets. Luxurious degree, bar option.
    • Nose

      Brightly fruity, dessert, mineral, seafood, vanilla, biscuits, muffins, vegetables, chocolate (chocolate muffin), citrus peel, mint chill, dichlorophos, peat, mushroom zhylene, damp basement, ash, cigars, sauerkraut / cabbage ... And a bunch of different nuances that I simply can not identify.

    Vanilla, tropical fruits, salt and smoke in a very good balance.
    This bottle didn't last long. A very nice example of a clean bourbon matured Bowmore. The OB Bowmores nowadays dont have such a fruity profile as this one has. Recommended.
