Insider knowledge: Bowmore 16 Year Old 1989 whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Bowmore 16 Year Old 1989 whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Clean, fresh and aromatic. Floral, stemmy. Tropical fruits as the peat creeps in, a touch of iodine. Coastal, buttery, treacle.
Palate: Perfumed, delicate. The botrytis, floral.
Finish: Long, spicy oak.
Very nice smooth taste and a pitty when the bottle is empty
