    N: Big fruity clotted cream, some nice sooty oils, tobacco/leather,.. Plenty here.
    T: Fruity at first then, boom! - the abv-fuelled peat is unleashed! Water brings to the fore, the cereal grain and less so the fruitiness. Dry smoke into the finish.
    F: Dry smoke with a nutty huskiness.
    C: And still the Independents’ have the lead on Bowmore. Weird that.Scores a B

    Was hesitant to get this bottle at first due to my experience with recent bottlings of Bowmore. Eventually decided to buy it. Inoffensive bottling. First impressions make this drinkable, though trying hard to separate my olfactory memory from other, more impressive Bowmore I have had. Still better than the current OB
