Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
N: Old bowmore-ish.  (Gee, that's helpful Chris.   Note to self: Don't take stupid notes, knucklehead).
P: Tasty passion fruit profile, my only gripe is that I wish it were bolder (i.e. cask strength).
F: A little salt and a whisp of peat.  Good!

Retaste:  Alright, a chance for redemption here.
N: Nectar, butter, oranges, and a little motor oil.
P: Very subtle peat balanced with sweet fruits (melon).
F: Butta.
Well, maybe partial redemption.   Still and A-.

The nose on this has light, sweet sherry with smoke coming in waves.  The palate puts the smoke in the forefront with a sherry background, and that smoke lasts into the finish.  This is beautifully balanced what with the nose leading with sherry and the palate leading with smoke; a sophisticated interchange of flavors takes place from nose to finish.  It's fun to drink!

Big fruity nose, particularly with grapefruit. Smoke hints as it opens up.

 

Oooh, yummy palate. Great light sherry aspects, with lots of little things that I don't want to describe, I just wanna drink them. Spice-sweet-bubblegum-yum. Trace of smoke in the finish.

 

So easy to drink and enjoy, a very solid A-. 

DW
 
Nose of sweet, salty caramel. Warm, peat, sweet and salty. Very smooth, quite good.
Dave
 
Rockin' good tropical fruits and salty greatness.  This was bright and popping and really was almost refreshing.  Terrific smoky sweetness that sceams old and Bowmore but so much more enjoyable than the average sherried Bowmore.
Fuji
 
Nice maltiness and light iodine and bubblegum sherry and peanuts.
Sour peat smoke bacon campfire bit of soap with sea salt to the finish
Andy

Good but nothing special
