Member Ratings and Notes
Displays the characteristic Bowmore qualities of smoke and maritime notes.  Complexity and distinctiveness.  B+/A- 
My first impression was that the sherry was not well integrated and almost seemed artificial.   However, as I polished off the bottle over the course of a few weeks, I grew to like this whiskey immensely. 
Mostly peat in the nose, but on the palate it's hot, but the peat and sherry are both prominent and very well-balanced. Not many secondary flavors, but quite enjoyable. 

n:  Fart in an old tin can.  Or perhaps an old fart holding a tin can.  Either way...


p:   Nice and briney.  Great.  Caramel and butterscotch up front with a very spicy tang.  Finish goes a little stale.


B/B+.  Goes B due to nose.
