Tasting Notes:
Tasting notes by Serge Valentin, WhiskyFun.com

Colour: straw - white wine.

Nose: we have more or less the same aromas here, but in different proportions: it’s less fruity and more milky, with something very feinty in the background (very little hints of baby vomit, which is not obligatorily troublesome!) Some notes of spent lees as well. The usual pink grapefruit grows bigger with time, as well as some notes of hot metal (still). Not the cleanest old Bowmore but it’s still most enjoyable on the nose.

Mouth: nicer now, more Bowmore-ish, starting on lots of fruits (citrus, orange peel) and going on with quite some rosehip tea and a little nutmeg. It grows then bolder, a little peppery and gets almost biting. Not a toothless old Bowmore at all! Nice notes of very ripe oranges and a little clove. The finish is long again, spicy, on clove and still orange peel.

A very nice old beastly Bowmore! 88 points.
