Nose
Reedy, leafy. Smokiness disappointingly light. Hay.
Palate
Oily, very vegetal, distinctly mustardy. Sweet-and-sour. Parsley.
Finish
Quick, gritty, sandy.
Comment
For a relatively young Bowmore, this seems somewhat tired.

Dave Broom

Nose
Dull and flat. Damp wood and some smoke.
Palate
Some light smoke.
Finish
Smoke.
Comment
This is a whisky from a 'neutral' cask where there has been no interchange between wood and spirit, giving a neutral end result. A distillery owner would be able to blend this away, an independent bottler should have the guts not to bottle it.
