Nose: Malty with pronounced saline notes and fresh sea air. Some light wood smoke and a subtle toffee sweetness.
Palate: A big, rich luscious smokiness, balanced with sweet caramelised sugar, vanilla and citrus notes. Finish: Powerful and warm.
Great smooth Islay whisky without the peat you would normally expect. Very accessible despite the high alcohol %.
I bought it at a bargain. Great scotch.
Non-chill filtered? i don't think so. Scottish mist is absent.

Smooth, velvet and a firm and warm bouquets after swallowing!

Bigger than the Tempest batch 3 in my opinion.
This is on the good side of Bowmore:)
