Can an aroma be fully bodied? Somehow this malt smells fat to me, bursting with fruit, sherry and smoke. The fruit is like orange juice providing a juiciness and a cutting edge that really makes this aroma sing.

On the palate it delivers the body promised by the aroma, with a balance of sweet fruity and smoky flavours. Some sherry and peat complete for attention with the oranges and some characteristic seaweed makes a brief appearance, it would not be Bowmore with it.

The finish picks up more seaweed and has a coastal salty twang, but you can’t escape from the smoke and orange even at the death.

Age is no reason to belittle this malt, it’s a little cracker that need not be kept from the drinker a moment longer. An excellent smoky all rounder, perfect for dark winter evenings.
