N: Funny nose, the typical Bowmore profile has been replaced with nectary orange bitters.
P: Very sweet and nutty, a lot of cask influence.  Sticky sweet. Some briny spice emerges and...
F: ...carries into the finish with a hint of bacon fat.
This is a weird one at first but it grows on you.  That being said, I bet this would have been better with a more traditional cask maturation.  But what the heck, why not try something different!

Sweet and sugary nose, the cask finish is more prevalent than the Bowmore, but very interesting. Not as much so on the palate, initially sweet fruit, and just a hint of peat during the finish. This is a combination that could be quite good if a bit more of the Bowmore was evident, as it just doesn't quite work here.
