Bowmore 11 yo (1998/2009), DT NC2, 46 %

Review #388
Peated Bowmore as we know it. Peat, light floral notes and some gentle oak in the smell. Almost nothing, just a wee hint in the background. Some lemon as well and some grass and dirt.

Very fresh and full of lemons at first in the taste. Right after the lemons fade, some light peat comes rushing in. Not much change towards the finish, where the flavors just lingers off, but in the end some smoked ham or bacon mixes with the peat.

My guess would be some refill bourbon barrels. It is not very complex but very fresh considering that it is an Islay whisky. Definitely something for a warm summers day. But be careful with water, as it drowns easily. I will give this 81/100 (20/21/21/19).
