Bowmore 13 yo C&S Dram Regional

April 3, 2011

A typical young Bowmore with a mix of fruit and smoke. It is rather smooth but also quite rich in taste at the same time. – Rating: 85/100

Almost a year ago I wrote a little rant about the anachronism that is the German Beer Purity Law (Reinheitsgebot). This time, believe it or not, I spring into defense of German beer.

The fruitiness of this malt harmonizes perfectly with the traces of aging. The coating and somewhat waxy mouthfeel gives it a luxurious touch. – Rating: 86/100

Overall: An excellent grain whisky with an amazing congruence of nose and palate. It is rather light in character but has strong flavours nonetheless. – Rating: 85/100
