Bowmore 1997/2015 Wemyss “Shellfish Platter”

by Oliver Klimek on May 16, 2016

Hogshead – 46%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Straw
Nose: Tinned pineapple and tangerine, hints of bacon, lemon zest, vanilla, fresh ginger, hints of pepper.
Palate: Mild peat, banana, pineapple, vanilla, strong Earl Grey tea, ginger, hints of nutmeg and white pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity, dry and smoky.
Overall: A typical midle-aged Bowmore of solid quality. This was bottled just in time before the wood influence became too powerful.

Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

What’s the origin of the name, if you know? “Shellfish Platter” doesn’t really seem to capture the notes listed.
