Refill Hogshead Cask #DL12812, Distilled July 1997, Bottled August 2018, Bottle #075 of 323
Delicacy offered under assertive flavors. Gracious and distinguished earthy peaty flavors, sea salt, malted cereals dipped in honey, oranges, salted caramel, vanilla in love. The palate is well rooted with a strong phenolic character and maritime flavors of salted caramel and wet peat. Marmalade of oranges, peardrop, honey and vanilla, all offered on a soft and languorous texture. The finish is reminiscent of cold ash and wood still filled with spirit, sea salt and shovel of wet earth. Slightly powdery feel as a booster, salted caramel and alcohol that comes into the tongue as a nail 6 inches agilely struck with a hammer. Good juice, but more than 600 $ the vial we expected no less ...
A beautiful classic Bowmore, with a ton of salt and nice peat smoke. Nose: The sea, a little peat smoke, barley ... Classic Bowmore in appearance. Palate: The beautiful coarse salt Bowmore, peat smoke, pepper. Beautiful big whiskey. Finale: Of a beautiful length, intense, salty and smoke.
Nose: discrete peat, but you can easily spot the classic maritime notes of Bowmore. Seaweed, washed stone, lemon, campfire on the edge of the lighthouse on a windy and cloudy Sunday afternoon. Grilled malt and fleur de sel. Palate: Peat and lemon, quite spicy but still your friend. Stone, wood and red wine. Orange and lemon, leather and salted caramel. Really really good. Finale: The peat is beautiful here, a bit straddling between the filthy variety and the maritime variety, which is unusual for a Bowmore. Balance: Incredibly solid, but hey, more than 600 $ I would rather be at the end of viarge if it was not up to par.
