Nose: Burnt plastic at first (not very pleasant) but after breathing for about 15 minutes it becomes very different. It's all about softly peated fruity sherry with a maritime touch. That about covers it all. Really nice.
Palate: The flavours of the nose seem to continue in the palate. There is much more peat than you would expect from a Bowmore. The sherry stays on the background but it gives a very nice touch to the palate. I really love it!
Finish: sweet sherry and gentle peat that lasts and lasts.
Brilliant whisky. So far the best Bowmore I've had.

Balblair 16, ADR
Nose: Big hit of barley, almond paste, faint hints of citrus, pine shavings and some resin
Palate: Barley sugar, finished oak, crushed almonds, lemon lime soda
Finish: long, lots of grain notes but smooth
