Nose
Reedy, leafy. Dry, smoky. Burnt grass. Sun-dried grass. Hay.
Palate
Cereal grain. Nutty. Malty dryness, and some oaky sweetness.
Finish
Very dry maltiness. Vegetal. Lavender. Parsley. Sea air.
Comment
Has mellowed with age. I missed the more assertively maritime characteristics in some younger Bowmores.

Nose
Rich and powerful with a slight biscuity edge. Leather, smoke, burnt orange peel, sultana, Dundee cake. Lovely elegance, mixed nuts, heather, seaweed.
Palate
Really sweet start, walnut cake, peach, treacle, then the peat surges through along with chocolate powder, wood.
Finish
Fruit cake, peach dry and smoky.
Comment
A big, elegant, powerful dram that's beautifully balanced.
