Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Straight-ahead fragrant peat smoke.
Palate: Oily. Good Bowmore character: reedy, smoky, sandy, salty.
Finish: Appetising. Long, late, peppery dryness.
Comment: All the elements of Bowmore, and plenty of alcohol, but extra dimension.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Slightly lean with touches of vanilla, shaved wood, butter and green plum.
Palate: Clean and sprightly, sugary: orange marmalade with smoke from about half way in. Round and gentle.
Finish: Light smoke.
Comment: A solid Bowmore that's lighter than the distillery bottlings.
