I’ve never had a bad bottling by The Nectar of the Daily Drams, and I was quite looking forward to this Bowmore bottled in 2012 at 52.1% ABV.
Nose: This is quite a sweet nose. Mostly sweet corn and lime. A confectionery sugar. The smoke is blended in nicely, accompanied by hints of salt.
Palate: This continues with what the nose promissed. Quite sweet, feels like I’m in a candy shop. Sweet lime, hints of orange.
Finish: Keeping with the theme, the sugar continues. Some pepper notes carried along by the smoke.
This is a fun one, although not the most complex of Bowmore. Right up my alley.
