Nose
Salty. Parsley. Vegetal. Rooty. Possibly iris root and even a hint of gin?
Palate
Light, firm, smooth, ferny. Some lavender.
Finish
Herbal. Very restrained peat-smoke.
Comment
At first tasting, I was hard-pressed to find any Islay character at all. On a second tasting, the next morning with a fresh palate, I began to find some smokiness. Even then, it seemed to emerge on the tongue for two or three minutes.

Nose
Sweet (ish) with a peculiarly limp peatiness that has to be searched for. Very odd!
Palate
Light and exceptionally malt-rich at first, salivatingly so. The smoke is no more than a wisp, followed by an absorbing mix of bittersweet spices.
Finish
Soft peppers, chocolate, vanilla and an almost apologetic, yet delicious, hint of peat.
Comment
One of the lightest, least peaty Bowmores I've tasted. Really delightful.
