Bowmore – 16yo, 1989

Rating: 5 out of 10

Nose: Sweet and confectionary. Very buttery: butterscotch and butter candy (most notably ‘boterwafeltjes’) but made of margarine instead of real butter. It almost smelss like drinking Irn Bru. Slightly smokey, slightly floral.
Mouth: Mega, mega soapy and very floral. Green soap, glycerine, fabric softner. Also some vanilla and butterscotch, but overall the soapy notes are dominating everything else here. Too much.
Finish: hot, sweet and floral, and not very interesting.

The mouth ruins the experience.
