This is the second of three Bowmore miniatures in my set. What I found most interesting when I compared this to the Laimrig (they ARE the same age) was that they were so completely different.

Nose: Syrup, vanilla, butterscotch/caramel, later a fruity note and hint of apple. with water the nose is deadened (even with a covered glass, but the fruit remains, and later a little sulfur, not in a pleasant way

Taste: Neat, there is an initially sour hit, with some citrus. Deep in the background some milk chocolate. A dry peat finish. With a few drops of water all I get is soggy, dilute peat.

Blech. Keep it neat.

Didn't finish this dram. Last ~ 10 cc in the bottle were saved for mixing into...
