Member Ratings and Notes
A little gunpowder on the nose along with orange rind and brine.   Restrained peat and smoke combines with excellent sweet fruit (mangos).  Very tasty. 
Massively drinkable stuff that improves on every sip. Citrusy and moderately sherried, with similarities to the bottling that replaced it, though I like that one better. This is quite good, though, with a great balance. Seems that 46% would have been a better choice for bottling, though. 
I don't know what it is about these ceramic Bowmores that just bore the hell out of me.  Meh. 
Tart citrus and chalk dust in the nose.  Tea and minerals in the palate.  Not too smokey or peaty.
