Nose is a huge blast of peat, the oily, fuely kind. Palate starts sweet with peat and coastal type notes (sea breeze, sea air, etc.) but it sort of poops out in the middle and the late palate is a bit weak in flavor. The finish gets back some of the fuely notes that I liked from the nose. Strong start and finish, but a bit weak on the mid to late palate.

Nose is fruit candy. Palate has peat with lots of that fruit candy in the background. Finish is pretty much the same. Not complex but nice balance of peat, fruit and sweetness.

I don't usually comment on the color but it looks like slightly diluted prune juice. Whatever it is was either heavily sherried or someone used a heavy had with the e150. The nose is thick, rich, fruity, monstrous sherry with Concord grapes and canned pears. On the palate, sulfur dominates, though that sweet fruit is still kicking around back there. By the finish, it's quite dry with sherry and sulfur notes. In the end I feel like the nose promised a bit more than the palate delivered, but it's still really good. B+/A-.

The nose is heavily sulfured sherry and lots of funky notes. The palate has dry sherry with some sulfur but not as much as I would have expected from the nose. It has a salty finish that fades into chocolate notes and fruit. This is huge, dry sherry bomb.

The nose has lemon and fruit cocktail. The palate is a sweet, fruit bomb with a twist of lemon. The finish is just lightly sweet with a lot of fruit on the nose. This one is sweet and fruity but very drinkable.  Very un-Bowmore in character.

The nose has strong peat. The palate is a nice balance of sweet and peat notes with the peat growing stronger through the palate and into a really nice peated finish. Tastes light for its abv. Nice peated malt though.

The nose has big peat notes, very raw. The palate has sweet peat notes with some seaweed. The finish is candy sweet with peat notes. Very BenRiach like with bold, sometimes harsh peat notes but it's a bit too sweet for me.
