A popular expression in Bowmore's ongoing range, this replaced the 17 year old, which was phased out a few years ago. Fresh, with notes of salty kippers and coal smoke.
Nose: Light, fragrant smoke – like herbs on fire. Also butterscotch, light menthol, nectarines, brine and ferns.
Palate: A big floral note up front followed by a prickly middle, with sweet syrup, sugared flowers and an oily mouthfeel.
Finish: Sweet, with floral notes, lightly tannic wood and a touch of sawdust.
Overall: This seems to be very much what Bowmore are going for – balanced smoke and wood, with a hint of the floweriness that they are known for.
