Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich and powerful with a slight biscuity edge. Leather, smoke, burnt orange peel, sultana, Dundee cake. Lovely elegance, mixed nuts, heather, seaweed.
Palate: Really sweet start, walnut cake, peach, treacle, then the peat surges through along with chocolate powder, wood.
Finish: Fruit cake, peach dry and smoky.
Comment: A big, elegant, powerful dram that's beautifully balanced.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Reedy, leafy. Dry, smoky. Burnt grass. Sun-dried grass. Hay.
Palate: Cereal grain. Nutty. Malty dryness, and some oaky sweetness.
Finish: Very dry maltiness. Vegetal. Lavender. Parsley. Sea air.
Comment: Has mellowed with age. I missed the more assertively maritime characteristics in some younger Bowmores.
