Interesting fact… Bowmore 25 Year Old (Small Batch Release) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Bowmore 25 Year Old (Small Batch Release) whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Dark fruits and coastal smokiness. Slightly herbal.
Palate: Characteristic peat smoke, cocoa and dry, creamy nuttiness.
Finish: Gentle smoke, oak, mocha, hints of prunes.
as luck would have it, my local bar was out of the Balvenie I ordered, and substituted a dram of this stuff for the same price. The smoothest scotch I've ever tasted--warm, spicy, soft, woody. Must save my pennies for another.
