  • Excerpt: The smoke is sotto voce. The savory nature continues on the palate. It needs water to bring out fresh fruits, and while there’s a bitterness on the end, that’s a minor cavil.

  • Intro:

    This is a NAS, cask strength, Limited Edition release from Bowmore. It is a marriage of first fill PX and first fill Oloroso matured casks that are blended and bottled at cask strength.

  • Nose:

    Vanilla, cocoa, rich stewed fruits. Faint earthy peat on the nose. Pepper, tobacco and nutty toffee.

  • Taste:

    Thick mouth feel. Oily and rich. Some heat, but restrained. Rich stewed fruits, toffee and nutty sherry are the first things I notice, with a big wet, earthy, vegetal peat slap following. The PX and Oloroso play nicely together, bringing toffee, caramel and raspberries to blend well with pepper, tobacco, cocoa and stone fruit notes.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, smoldering smoke and rich stewed fruits.

  • Overall:

    This is 40% sherry bomb and 60% peat slap. It's really quite nice.

  • Score:

    7
