Dram Review: Elements of Islay Bowmore Bw7

[53.2%・16 Years Old・Distilled in 2001・Bottled in 2017・Elixir Distillers Bottling・Limited Release]


The brine combines with big Sherry, a meaty base with all the glorious characters of chocolate mud cake drizzled in dark plum sauce; dirty smoke adding such an interesting facet to things, rounding off with sweet smoke, molasses and barley sweetness on full show later.

Palate & Finish:

Chocolate dust and toffee syrup with this almost drying, oily Demerara sugar note, with a splash of cinnamon seasoning the peat driven herbal note. It becomes earthy and smoky from the mid-palate with some burnt toast note.

Chocolate sauce, sea salt and iodine in the finish, lasting rather long.


Aye! this is one feisty little dram!

Size doesn’t matter in this case I suppose..
