Adam
 
Nose is quite farty, with cider. Palate is apple-raisin okay-ness. The finish is where this dies -- it gets dusty and very cardboard-feeling and tasting. In a not good way. The farty nose and particularly crappy finish = this pretty much sucks.  C/C-

Bowmore perfume is one of those elements I am super sensitive to and this one is a perfume monster.  It's lighter on the nose but then keeps creeping and is big on the palate with its strong, overly floral flavors. I'm glad they appear to have exhausted the whisky from this era.

N: Warm sherry and peat with strawberries and malted barley

P: Sherry, ripened fruits with peat followed by lavender, bitter grapefruit and green apples

F: Drying tart finish

 

Good balance between the sherry and peat with some tartness to it. My bottle was different from Adam and Sku.
