Duncan Taylor has a series of NC² bottlings, meaning 'non chill-filtered' and 'non-coloured'. This Bowmore was distilled in 1998 and bottled as an 11 Year Old in 2010, cut to a strength of 46%.
This Bowmore is sweeter than expected on the nose. Citrus is top of the bill, barely granting the ashes, peat and sea weed any of the limelight.
The first sip is pretty spicy and only now does he reveal his peaty character. It's still very sweet: the citrus is accompanied by some vanilla. Slightly creamy too. The second and third sips are the best, with the typical characteristics of a Bowmore.
The finish is long and warming with sweet peat all the way.
This is one of the best Bowmore I have tasted in a while.
