Bowmore – Malts Of Scotland

Rating: 8 out of 10

Nose: Spicy, herbal and sherried and slightly austere. Way different from the previous Bowmores. Thankfully, this one doesn’t have any of those overly sweet butterscotch notes. Instead there’s a lot of spices and herbs and a distant hint of smoke, but not at all peaty. Reminds me of couchsyrup.
Mouth: Very pleasant, and very clearly a sherried whisky. Balanced, bittersweet. Quite tannic, but in a nice way. Interesting woody notes. Pinetree, pine sap, willow-branches.
Finish: Good, medium long.
