Member Ratings and Notes
All smoke on the nose.  The palate evinces strong smoke with a subtle floral background.  The strong smoky notes make it much closer in character to a south shore Islay but for the brief floral notes.  A bold Bowmore. 
Smells like smoked pork. Hickory and pine fire. Palate is nicely smokey with equally fruity stuff. Nice level of sweetness plays well off the smoke. Yum!! 
N: Confectionery, just confectionery.  The sweetest tastiest peat imaginable.
P: This is just all sugar, probably the sweetest Bowmore I've ever had, and it balances the peat and smoke perfectly.
F: Sugar fades to light fruit.  
Extremely enjoyable, so great to see such a great cask at this age. 
Might have been the winner of the night for classic Islay malts but I think the Sea Dragon beat this out by a smidge.  This is classic bacon grease peat with burnt brown sugar and a heavy warmth that says welcome home on a cold afternoon.  Great stuff.
