Bowmore? Where's the smoke? Who cares, this is a beautiful whisky.
No age statement
Islands (Non Islay)
Nose: Incredibly fruity: melon, lychee, peach, kiwi. Gentle and soft; very light oak, a hint of smoke.
Palate: Good grip balanced by that fruit salad that runs from start to finish. Soft and plump with enough zestiness to stop it being flabby.
Finish: Long, drying.
Comment: Bowmore? Where's the smoke? Who cares, this is a beautiful whisky.
Nose: Very aromatic. Fruity. Smoky. Ortega grape.
Palate: Light to medium. Firm. Slippery smooth. Ripe banana. Pineapple. Grape.
Finish: Fragrant smoky dryness. Ferny. Just a hint of the sea.
Comment: Fresh, very drinkable. Doesn't remotely taste it's age.
