Bowmore Dusk suggestions

Postby chapel » Mon Feb 28, 2011 2:33 am

I was just given a bottle of Bowmore Dusk as repayment for a favor.
I was wondering if there are any suggestions for maximum enjoyment of it.
I tend to drink Macallan 12 year single with an ice cube or two. Nothing fancy.

I just pour it and drink it. If you need to add a couple of drops of water to dilute it. :thumbsup:

As I recall the Dusk is port finished. Try it straight and add water as necessary.

You could splash it with water, but it's a hundred percent worth at one hundred proof. :wink:

I think the Dawn is the port cask.

Yeah, I knew one was port and one was bordeaux. Then again, I'd much rather have the Bowmore Claret than either.
