Bottle: Standard Bowmore bottling
Nose: Sea air, iodine, butterscotch.
Body: Reasonably viscous and a little bit sticky.
Palate: Dry smoke, toffee, salt, butter and citrus notes. Nice without really impressing.
Finish: Long, sour, smoky but a little shallow in the end.
Neat/Ice/Water: At 40% it doesn’t need water.
Verdict: Quaffable. I can drink it and it’s not bad but I find it a little underwhelming and anonymous beyond it’s base Islay characteristics. I wouldn’t buy it again to be honest as I can think of many better malts for the money, Islay or otherwise.
