Quite a dense and oily nose with oodles of herbal-peat and brine along with hints of liquorice and black pepper. Wonderfully gentle and mature with developing malty, stewed fruit. With time hints of seaweed, light tar, camphor, treacle and very dusty peat emerge. Stunning nose!

Wonderfully soft and mature on the palate, opening with baked fruit and dusty peat along with hints of wood spice and mature parma violets. Pleasantly full and as those oils get going it fleshes out rather well on the middle with tar, spice and fish oils. Very, very long with the sweet parma violet lingering along with the dusty-peat and tar, finishing with hints of damp wood and dunnage floors. Classic old Bowmore, absolutely stunningly long, the after-taste lasts for a good 5 mins!
