    Matt of Another Dram Society in New Jersey,

    The nose is a monster of tropical fruit! Mango, Papaya, guava, and pineapple with vanilla and foreign spices blending seamlessly. They are just going back and forth with the occasional floral notes and then every so often, a wave of Islay (light peat, salt, iodine, and seaweed) comes to show itself. Then it sinks back under the tropical fruit, vanilla, and an amazing blend of spices forming a masterpiece of a perfume that is so complex, you need to nose it in waves before your nose fatigues. Then the perfect blend of spices and fruit form a tea that only a true connoisseur can appreciate, before just a hint of star anise comes to present itself for another level of complexity. The taste is malty with citrus and spices that then develops a light mix of both sweet and bitter peat. It then gets a bitter and quirky fruit coming forward like passion fruit that is infused in that same tea that was on the nose. At first, the finish is just delicate citrus and a is still a little bitter, but then fruit starts again allowing it to become more balanced and smooth out the bitter flavors. Then a sweet dessert with caramel and sugar cookies show up before that same tea comes back to stay for what appears to be forever. 10 minutes later and it still is here. I am concentrating so much on the unbelievable complexity that my eyes just started to tear and I have gotten the chills. This is just like listening to Mahler''s Symphony #8 (Symphony for a thousand) where it is so huge in the variety of flavors and complexity that it just leaves you speechless and in awe when it is finally finished. It is truly a masterpiece and now after 15 minutes of just sitting here in awe, the delicate tropical fruit comes back. Unbelievable. The Gold Bowmore may have more intense flavors, like Lychee, but nothing and I mean NOTHING can hold up to the complexity of this.

  • Greg from Paris,

    Good question Bruce !It depends how much u can spend for it.What else to say? I had the chance to taste it last year. At first it is so light that u feel it is almost absent, then it gets more present , perfumy and reveals itself in its glory. Not a full bodied one. Rather like little clouds in a clear bright sky, it is truly a caress for your palate, while angels kindly sing close to your ears ! Who said paradise?Well, guys, we're getting close with this one (97/100)

  • Bruce,

    Is this a good investment at this price?

  • Anonymous,

    no, it is not red bowmore. the master of bowmore decided to not make a finish on this cask. the new name is gold bowmore!

  • Cthulhu,

    I'd thought Red Bowmore, for Port cask. Not sure I'd want to taste a 44 y.o. Port finish, though... :o)
