Bowmore 17 yo (1997/2015), SMWS 3.243, 57,1 %

Review #142
This whisky is called “Dark, smouldering flamenco gypsy” and is made from a refill ex-sherry butt. 594 bottles were made and it was bottled for Feis Ile 2015. Mild peat and sweetness, but yet very powerful in the smell. After a couple of minutes in the glass more peat comes forward alongside some maritime notes.

It burns at first in the taste and then the peat fills your mouth and leaves it watery. The finish is so smooth, and the classic Bowmore mixed with the dried fruits works extremely well.

You can easily give this some water. Some tannins will appear as some of most noticeable. A great Bowmore from SMWS. Thanks! I will rate this 91/100 (22/23/24/22).
