Nose
A bathroom cabinet, coconut hair conditioner, perfumed soap, lavender body lotion. Settles down to show light smoke and dried flowers, but that intense perfume remains in the background, though it is diminished slightly with water.
Palate
Sweet to start, then a sudden drying with dried flowers, old Seville orange peel and peat fire ashes.
Finish
Perfumed again. Dry smoke.
Comment
One of those Bowmores.

Nose
Floral. Carnation, peony. Quite heady scent. Followed by warm malty notes. And slowly unwinding a light veil of smoke which hovers over the malty core. With a smoked fish touch.
Palate
Sweet with this heady note. Crystallised Parma violet. A Bowmore? The smoke stays in the back.
Finish
Dry. Tightened.
Comment
The Bowmore character shows out on the palate with this floral touch. But the peatiness has nearly vanished.
