Bowmore 22 yo (1989/2011), Liquid Sun, 50,7 %

Review #339
This single cask is from a Bourbon Hogshead and only 256 bottles were made. Light sweet marzipan peat with hints of lemon in the smell. Not much influence from the 22 years in the cask though.

Very mellow in the taste. Sweet vanilla, marzipan and gentle peat. The finish is just a soft continuation. Like pillow soft, but it stays for quite a while and pampers your palate! Water doesn’t seem to do much, so it is simply just a silky smooth dram.

I am a bit surprised that the oak influence from a small Bourbon Hogsheads isn’t more present after 22 years. Makes me wonder exactly how used it was before they used it to make this one. I will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).
