Tasting Notes by markjedi1

At a wonderful whisky & chocolate tasting, this Bowmore was paired to a Menakao Madagascar Dark Chocolate and a Duffy’s Panama Tierre Oscura organic chocolate. I thought it formed a great couple with the bar from Madagascar. Today, I will be trying this young Bowmore, which got a PX finish, without chocolate.

The nose is fresh. Next to the seaweeds and the peat, I get a hint of baked egg white, which is not really my thing. Then some coconut and lemon peel, which is my thing. Develops beautifully in the glass. Becomes more fruity as time passes. More citrus and some raisins. Good.

On the palate, the peat suddenly becomes very powerful. Raisins and some white fruit and even tarmac around a malty heart. Nicely warming and a touch smoky, but not overly so.

The finish is long on malty notes and great peat smoke.

A fresh and young Bowmore on sherry. I like it!
