Nose
Very aromatic. Distinctive. Fresh. Lavender. Ferny. Peat smoke.
Palate
Soft but insistent smokiness over a clean, sweetly malty background.
Finish
Creamy, with a savoury note reminiscent of seaweedy pretzels.
Comment
Bowmore is a great malt. Let's see more of it in straightforward ages.

Nose
Complex and fresh scented. Lightly maritime. Concentrated light honey flavours and maple syrup when reduced.
Palate
Maritime. Pretty friable; the addition of water doesn't help.
Finish
Very short and drying.
Comment
Confusing. Lightness of nose is contradicted by strident palate. It promises a lot but doesn't deliver.
