Tasting Notes by Jahjehwa

I'm new to whiskey (new to sitting down and sipping and enjoying it , that is) and so this review is from a newcomers point of view.

I do smell some vanilla and caramel maybe some citrus notes as well. The taste is somewhat sweet not harsh and smooth enough to move around the mouth and enjoy a variety of flavors. A bit spicy at the finish but smooth and warm going down. I could sit and drink a few of these but it leaves me wanting something a little better.

I enjoy it for its value and getting into drinking whiskey and probably will purchase again (price) but I'll be looking elsewhere next time.

Sorry ABV was 40 not 43. Damn that first bottle was tasty for the price!

As Elvis Costello sings, "accidents will happen." Thanks to Bowmore for getting it right (by accident?). Ha! Maybe so. I used to love your whisky in the early 2000s. Higher offerings used to be really good. I tasted an old malt cask bottled in 2000 at a friends house last winter. It blew me away. Fantastic stuff. Made me long for the good ole days when this distillery shone like a beacon of quality and brilliance
