Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is earthy, smoky, damp and dank, with Band Aids and a musty quality that makes it smell Ardbeggy.  The palate verifies this as a great peaty whisky, quite sweet, with mild grasses and toffee.  Not as much complexity as I expected given the nose, though.  Finish is lengthy.  Overall this is a solid whisky, and it strikes me more like an Ardbeg than a Bowmore, very Beist-y.  B/B+ 
Musty old closet from the nose to the palate.  Interesting departure for a Bowmore.  Innoffensive, but not really newsworthy.
