Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Reedy, leafy. Smokiness disappointingly light. Hay.
Palate: Oily, very vegetal, distinctly mustardy. Sweet-and-sour. Parsley.
Finish: Quick, gritty, sandy.
Comment: For a relatively young Bowmore, this seems somewhat tired.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dull and flat. Damp wood and some smoke.
Palate: Some light smoke.
Finish: Smoke.
Comment: This is a whisky from a 'neutral' cask where there has been no interchange between wood and spirit, giving a neutral end result. A distillery owner would be able to blend this away, an independent bottler should have the guts not to bottle it.
