Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Brown sugar and brine, raisins. Light peat evokes a beachside grill. All this with the seaweed/iodine makes me crave baked oysters. If colder: A dark sweet bread, like spice loaf. If warmer: smokey charcoal.
Palate: Similar to the nose (described above). Extremely pleasant with savory/salty peat, really like grilled/blackened fresh fish. And to balance it all out, the fruits-de-mer has a light squeeze of lemon over some molasses glaze.
Finish: More of the same-- slight sweetness, mild green apple peel, and an extremely pleasant sweet smoke that lingers in the nose while I monitor the grille.
I was happy to mistakenly buy this while searching for the "other" (and completely different) Bowmore 15 expression, "Darkest". Luckily this expanded my range at the time, and now it's hard to imagine living without keeping this character in my cabinet.
