This stuff is incredible. Of all the whiskies i've tasted, I always come back to this.
Only worth getting if you know you like port finishes.
Tempted by the glowing Jim Murray review I found it a touch too alcoholically strong and a touch too peat smoky (for me at least). It seems I prefer a sweeter more subtle whisky such as Dalwhinnie 1990 distillers edition or 18yo Talisker.... but I am relatively new to tasting! Will seek Dad's opinion as he's a Lagavulin man and may be more up his street.
A beautifully balanced BOWMORE, the port plays a very nice rule, but the "I'm-sitting-so-comfortably-before-a-nice chimney- fire" influence is more noticeable. According (not only) to my opinion one of the most still affordable and valuable masterpiece from this distillery, along with the Mariner and the 17 y.o. expressions. And an unforgettable one !
This whisky is one of the finest whiskies you can enjoy, strong and fiery, that leaves a warm feeling, a real Islay Whisky. Its gorgeous.
This Scotch is very strong. Not for your average scotch drinker. Very Strong after taste. Potent woody finish. Scale of 1-10. I give it a 4. Stick with Glen Ellen or Glen Fiddich.
