Nose

The nose is sweet and fresh on vanilla, apples, grapes, lime (including zest) and lots of sea salt. A classic Bowmore if you ask me. The smoke is in the background, making it fresh and accessible. In that sense, it really reminds me of the Small Batch from a few years ago.

Taste

I would not have minded a little bit more body. On the palate too, it is very fruity and sweet, while the peat is a lot more outspoken. It even flirts with tropical notes, which I quite like. Loads of vanilla too. Yes, again, I am reminded of the Small Batch.

Finish

The finish is not very long, but with a lovely smokiness and a touch of mint. Vanilla and citrus remains present throughout.

Comments

This really is a twin of the Small Batch, albeit somewhat cheaper. Around 35 EUR. A nice entry for people who are not yet familiar with Islay whisky.

Nose

grasgrün, krautig, pflanzlich-bitter, Blumenschnitt, etwas Asche, Salz... Süße (Vanille, Karamell oder sowas) suche ich nahezu vergeblich - manchmal glaube ich, zwei Moleküle zu erschnuppern, die sind dann aber gliech wieder zwischen dem Grünzeug verschwunden

Taste

siehe oben - Grünzeug, bitter, Hände nach dem Unkrautjäten, Asche, Konservendose, dazu eine sanfte Karamellnote, die aber total verliert... irgendwie ölig, aber trotzdem verdammt dünn im Mund

Finish

warm, wenig und kurz Süße, mittelang Bitterkeit und etwas Schärfe

Comments

Wenn das die neue Nummer 1 ist, dann gute Nacht! Ich mag Bowmore und ich liebe knackige 1st-Fill-Bourbon-Abfüllungen, auf den hier habe ich mich nach dem sehr gelungenen Sherry-9er sehr gefreut, aber kannste vergessen. Von dem Bourbonfass merke ich so gut wie nix, Bowmore hätte ich ums Verrecken nicht erkannt, das Ganze erinnert eher an eine stark verdünnte Mischung aus (zu) jungem Laphroaig und Caol Ila... aschiger Unkrautspinat. (Und nö, das liegt nicht an meiner Tagesform - gestern schon probiert, selbes Ergebnis.)

Nose

Schräg, vulkanisierter Gummireifen, Kupplungsabrieb, Desinfektionsmittel, von hinten versucht auf Krampf eine Frucht sich anzuschleichen. Erwärmt Veilchen, ohne Ende. 

Taste

Zuerst gar nichts, wässrige Konsistenz, nach etwas Zeit kommen recht bittere Tannine, künstliche Süße und eine undefinierbare Gammeligkeit mit einer guten Prise Anis.

Finish

Fauliges Holz im Abgang, was langsam leicht süßer Asche Platz macht, die sich sanft auf die Zunge legt. Gottseidank ist der relativ kurz. 

Comments

Die süße Asche ist zwar nichts besonderes aber schön. Nur macht ein schöner Abgang noch keinen guten Whisky und so richtig schön ist ja auch der Abgang nicht. Für mich hat der mehr als nur ein paar Fehlnoten. An der Grenze zum Ausguss. 

Gruß von hier...
