    Wonderful marriage of sweet (but not overwhelming or too sticky) Sherry with the nutty, salty, creamy and gently peated Bowmore spirit on the nose. A few drops of water released more rich coffee and salt, whilst magnifying the sherry fruits. Really great stuff! The palate also reveals a masterly balance between the sweet and the peat, with plenty of rich, dark berries, hazelnut coffee and some tingling chilli all wrapped up by the soft, creamy peat smoke. The finish is long and lingering, again with the sweet and fruity sherry accentuating and adding depth to the salty peat smoke. Another wonderful hand-fill bottle that reaches the incredibly high standards of the last one I tried a couple of years ago (13th release; another rich Sherry cask, if my memory serves me correctly). Bowmore seem to have massively upped their game over the last few years, and these distillery-only bottles suggest that a high quality spirit is being matched with excellent cask selection. Great stuff!!

    PX all the way, though not dark in colour (if that says anything anyway), this is very clean. If you like PX, this is one for you.
