Nose: Peaty, powerful nose with red berry fruits and Corinth raisins. Beeswax, a little honey and salt caramel. Figs develop.
Palate: Thick, creamy palate with notes of wood smoke and sticking plasters. Citrusy, zesty flavours, with sultanas and Oloroso. Dried peels and spice.
Finish: Rich finish with bonfire toffee, apricots and candied peels. Potpourri.
Overall: Rich and punchy - Batch 2 is a superb example of what Bowmore can offer.
