  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    After a while this whisky becomes really beautiful. Intriguing Bowmore from a difficult era. Tasted with Rick and Emiel.
    • Nose
      Oomph, a real peat attack at first! After a while the smoke dissapears to the background and is replaced by more grassy notes. Cucumber. Lots of geraniums (like stepping into a flower shop). But also some kind of dustiness. Very special.
    • Taste
      Now more orange marmelade. Dried fruits of figs and dates. Followed by lemon pie and citrus fruit. Cedar wood. Clove and ginger as well.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Very peppery. Also some maritime influences and salt. Liquorice.
