Just bought this dram. Wonderful nose, upon opening it. Complex. The scents of warm smoke, sherry, vanilla, oak, subtle peat, dark honey, & slight butterscotch flavors.
It reminded me of one of my favorites which is Bowmore 17yr. (but now discontinued) although, it didn't have the sherry tones in it, that this one does. Nice touch.
On the palate, definite smoke lingers, sherry is still present, with coffee, vanilla.
Very smooth on the finish, lingering smoke is still there, dry chocolate tones with slight sherry, oak flavours.
Much preferred over Bowmore 12, in my opinion...and much closer to Bowmore 17 in my opinion.
I will have to try it once more tonight with an espresso and DK chocolate...as an accompaniment.
