Bowmore 1997 The Nectar of the Daily Drams | 52.1% ABV | Bottled 2012

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.

Color: Straw

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.
