Bowmore Darkest 15 Year
Single Malt — Islay, Scotland
Reviewed July 30, 2020
Smoky, earthy peat, like cigar ash and struck matches, dominates the nose; water and a few minutes tease forth a little toffee and nuts. Palate starts with smoky peat, that sticks with you throughout and is then joined by wood spice and finally a little caramel sweetness, with a whiff of sherry. I generally find sherry + peat a tricky combo to pull out; here peat carries the day and sherry is visibly muted. Not a bad whisky by any means but not really my thing.
