Cask #985, Sample from the cask at the distillery warehouse.
Compact block of aromas and flavors; fruit paste, raisins, plums, macerated cherries, blood oranges, sea salt, then bizarre dirty industrial peat. I love the sweetness of the nose and the peat in the background, the pasty fruit. The palate is punchy, notes of leather and wet earth, fruit paste, plums, salty and maritime peat moss, blood oranges. There is always this bizarre industrial side in the mouth as well as a camphor touch. Long, fruity, peaty and earthy finish, dried purple grapes, plums, black cherries. Refinement with a raw touch.
Oh yes oh yes oh yes! I just love it. I love. As good as a whiskey can be. Nose: Oh! Sherry is so intense for a whiskey where peat usually dominates, but here it is definitely in the background. Palate: Always the big sherry, with salt and peat, all reminding in fact an old, very old Bowmore. Also, spices, a little brown sugar ... Phew, it's so good! Final: A long length ... Pfff, I do not know what to write, but it's great!
