Dram Review: Bowmore Aged 25 Years (Bottled Circa 2004-2005)

[43.0%・Bottled Circa 2004-2005・ 25 Years Old・Original Bottling・General Release]

Nose:

Full and rich at 43%, heavier tones of herbal and vegetative tones, milky, vanilla sundae sauce with some over-ripen fruits. Dirty peat and oily fudge in time giving a rounded experience.

Palate & Finish:

Strawberry preserve infused with cloves and dirty peat smoke, the peat inspired qualities are mellowed out by the Sherry sweetness, making for a decently balanced finish.

Thoughts:

An expressive Sherried Bowmore without being too special. Rather nice.
