This pale gold dram is very creamy and the legs in the glass are stunning. A good sign.
The nose is deliciously complex. After the initial peat is a whole scala of dark fruits (berries, prumes), a touch of liquorice and something that reminds me of cough syrup.
On the palate you get a wonderful continuation of the nose with a full and rich mouthfeel, nicely peppered and yet mouthwateringly sweet. There is even some marzipan in there!
This Bowmore Darkest treats you to a lovely long and warm finish.
This Darkest is anything but boring, but a very complex dram that is the light at the end of the tunnel after the disappoiting encounters with the Legend (ok, that is a whole other league) and the Dusk. I would suggest this dram with a dark dessert like brownies or chocolate mousse.
