Bowmore Tasting Notes
Murray McDavid Bowmore 89
The pale colour bellies the character and flavour that this dram possesses. The peat reek is evident from the first whiff, and , although not as pronounced as some of its neighbours gives this great charm. The palate is salty sweet with a lovely long and refreshing finish.
Duncan Taylor Cask Strength Bowmore 1968 34 yr old
Gold, pale straw color. Classic Bowmore nose filled with smoky peat, sea salt, and iodine. Rich, woody, and complex with a long lingering malt finish intertwined with more sweet peat, an amazing finish!
