Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Hessian. Sea air. Smoke. Complex, distinctive and appetising.
Palate: Perfumey. Satiny. Mint humbugs. The smokiness of burning grass. Hint of flowering currant.
Finish: Hard, salty, liquorice.
Comment: Let the flavours unfold. Enjoy the complexity.
9.0
Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Heady, toffeeish and promising with a lurking smoky backdrop.
Palate: A magic carpet of sherry, dark toffee, coffee and smoke hover above Bowmore's more delicate structure.
Finish: Cocoa and roaster coffee abound until all the peaty and perfumy liquorice notes emerge.
Comment: Forget expresso and cappuccino, try this for breakfast with a fat Havana. Hedonistic!
