Destilleriets offisielle smaksnotater
|Deep, Rich Mahogany||Intense sherry and stewed fruits with a trace of Bowmore smokiness.||After twenty five years, delicious toffee and hazelnut have mellowed together with just a hint of sweet peat smoke.|
|Ettersmak: Mellow, gentle and incredibly complex. Savour every drop|
|Full gold||It’s incredible how close to the 10 yo it is, except for some added sherry notes. Very, very maritime and lemony, with something quite wild (rather wet hay in fact and of course peat smoke). Goes on with very ripe oranges, wet dog (a clean one), a little mint, oysters, hints of vanilla fudge, iodine… And a rather superb freshness. Top class as far as the nose is concerned.||Oily, thick like syrup, peppery and ultra-candied (peppered liquid caramel?) Lots of bitter oranges, quite some nutmeg, apricot juice, tangerine liqueur… We do have slight geraniumy notes in the background as well as quite some violet sweets but in no ways they’re disturbing here. Probably one of the best Bowmores distilled in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s that I could taste.|
|Ettersmak: Most enjoyable, not bold nor very long but beautifully citrusy and lively (a little icing sugar and lemon), even pleasantly fizzy. |
Oppsummering: A very, very good new Bowmore - but I know some other Maniacs don't like it at all. Controversial.
