Oloroso sherry cask – 51.8%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Light wood smoke, fresh sea air, pineapple, lemon zest, vanilla, nutmeg, hints of black pepper.
Palate: Peat, honey, tropical fruit cocktail with raisins, vanilla, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long and smoky with spicy fruit.
Overall: This rather typical Bowmore has only a slight sherry influence, probably from a refill cask. All flavour elements are very well balanced and make it a highly anjoyable malt.
Rating: 88/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
