I received this bottle over the Holidays and thought it was about time I opened it. I also thought it was time I wrote my first review on the site so here it is.
Nose:Smoke and Peat. Vanilla bean ice cream while walking by the seaside.
Taste: Hints of smoke along with lightly charred wood. Toffee drizzled with chocolate and honey delivered with a lightly oiled elegance.
Finish: Light and beautifully smooth with delicately spiced oak.
I thoroughly enjoyed my first foray into the world of Bowmore. I would have scored it even higher had it not been slightly lacking in energy. As I tasted more of it I was looking for something that just was not there. It was like Superman without the cape, as with every sip I took I thought it was going to soar but it did not quite have the ways or means to get there.
