Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Sweet (ish) with a peculiarly limp peatiness that has to be searched for. Very odd!
Palate: Light and exceptionally malt-rich at first, salivatingly so. The smoke is no more than a wisp, followed by an absorbing mix of bittersweet spices.
Finish: Soft peppers, chocolate, vanilla and an almost apologetic, yet delicious, hint of peat.
Comment: One of the lightest, least peaty Bowmores I've tasted. Really delightful.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Salty. Parsley. Vegetal. Rooty. Possibly iris root and even a hint of gin?
Palate: Light, firm, smooth, ferny. Some lavender.
Finish: Herbal. Very restrained peat-smoke.
Comment: At first tasting, I was hard-pressed to find any Islay character at all. On a second tasting, the next morning with a fresh palate, I began to find some smokiness. Even then, it seemed to emerge on the tongue for two or three minutes.
