Bowmore 17 yo

by Oliver Klimek on July 27, 2009

Old Bottling – 43 %

My Tasting Notes

Nose: Not very strong, slightly smoky, slightly floral
Palate: Fragile peat combined with fragile floral notes. Not much in there to hunt for.
Finish: Not very long, peat disappears before the flowers.
Overall: Praised by many, but I was disappointed. Perhaps there was something wrong with the sample I recevied, I don’t know. You don’t notice that this is a 17 yo, might as well be a 12 yo. Almost like a cross between classic Islay and Lowlands.

Score: 73/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
