This is from the range Highland Laird from Malts of Scotland. It is from an American Oak cask. The color is almost so pale that you could confuse it with water at first sight. The smell is far from pale though. You don’t sense that it is 52,4 %. Very light on the nose with hints of rubber and some marzipan sweetness.
The taste is very smooth. Salty, citrus and some peat. Not very much peat though. I can’t remember when I have tasted a Bowmore with so little peat in it. And definitely not a Bowmore this young! The finish is nice and long. Some fruits appear. Sour citrusy fruits.
This is a fun and a different type and style of Bowmore than you usually get. That is what I love about independent bottlers! I will rate this 85/100 (20/21/22/22).
