Very oily coastal orange fruit to begin with, followed by barley, light peat smoke, honey, fish, brine and hints of spices and menthol. The sherry sits pleasantly in the background and supports. One wonders where the intense peat smoke of old has gone?

The palate is dry, soft and a bit fluffy to be honest. Still oily with light peat, barley, menthol/ eucalyptus and hints of fisherman's friends, which leads into a coal/ charcoal dust middle. This must be the politest Bowmore I've ever tasted, dare I say elegance has replaced its manly charms? The finish is very long with an intense saline finish and returning coal dust after taste.
