This is quite a delicate, almost fragile rum. It has a great nose and it’s very nice tastewise, but the low bottling strength takes away some of the pleasure. – Rating: 79/100

Summer is coming to an end. To keep up the spirit I decided to turn this week into the official Dramming Rum Week.

For a wheated bourbon, this packs qute a punch. A decent dram and a good value. – Rating: 81/100

Bowmore 1999/2010 C&S Dram Collection

Without water this is a very untypical and somewhat strange Bowmore. But add a spash or two and it will transfrom into a nice albeit somewhat spicy dram. – Rating: 82/100

Unfortunately, the refill cask could not give this malt the richness we have come to expect from a Dalmore. There are some nice flavours, but they are a little too subtle for my taste. – Rating: 76/100
