Tempted to get one of the new Bowmores but LFWs comments puts me off:
'Nettles and vegetative including lavender and Twix®, biscuit and caramel I suppose. Nice and well balanced. To taste there is too much perfume, it's not whisky, adding water just makes it nasty, too horrible to continue. PLUS a shit finish that just won't go away.'
The 17yo will be available in International Markets and Travel Retail Only in definitely. I heard this at the Scottish launch of the rebranding in November last year. I'm goinbg to Bowmore next week and will get confirmation from some of the reps from Fior Brands who do the marketing.
if you visit the Bowmore homepage and browse around through the portfolios you will find the Bowmore 17 in the new bottle and the new tube. That would be odd if it is to be discontinued. But I heard that, too and went looking. Strange if they should have made just one new bottle of it to take a picture.
