Dram Review: Wemyss Malts Bowmore Nostalgic 70’s Flavour

[57.4%・22 Years Old・Distilled in 1995・Bottled in 2018・ Wemyss Malts Bottling for KUO, F.A.T, Aqua Vitae & Spirits Salon・Single Cask Release of 210 Bottles]

Nose:

A bacon smokiness cuts through the sweet soapy aromas, hint of burnt plastic to go with the barbecue smoke.

Palate & Finish:

Vibrantly juicy with the tropical white fruits with just a brute oomph of smoke to prop up the backbone, certainly has this rawness to it.

The spiciness carries forward to the finish, eases out with some pepper and barbecued pineapples.

Thoughts:

For me this is a fun modern Bowmore that has character, I’m not too sure how it resembles 70s expressions but I suppose these days we are all nostalgic of the good old days, simpler times of fun IB Bowmore.
