When I spotted this bottle, I knew the Whisky Ladies were already gearing up for a special Bowmore session. So thought why not take a sample to compare…
However as the months went by, our Bowmore Travel Trilogy evening kept getting delayed. And there was no way I wanted this sample to suffer neglect.
Bowmore just so happens to be lead by a woman master distiller – Rachel Bowie.
- Nose – Sweet citrus with a hint of sweet leather with a curl of smoke.
- Palate – A tingle of peat with a nice chewy quality, lots of oak and some sweet spices thrown in for good measure – particularly clove
- Finish – More dry spices and a hint of bitter chocolate
Overall it was a treat to enjoy a solid Bowmore dram.
