Bowmore 2001 – Wilson & Morgan Barrel Selection

Rating: 7 out of 10

Starts of with a very saline and smokey nose. Very hearty and herbal. It almost smells like soup, with lots of sellery and lovage. After a while sweeter notes of vanilla and fruit start to emerge.

On the palate it’s sweet and surprisingly smooth. Lots of mineraly notes and peat, but a not as interesting as the nose. Slightly waxy.

Short and bittersweet finish with a faint hint of a floral soapyness that disappears as quickly as it comes.

A nice and a-typical, but simple dram that really makes me want to eat. It is a good example of the unique characters you get with independend bottlings of well-known distilleries.
