First of the micro reviews. Not that they’re shorter (they really couldn’t be, I’m phoning this shit in pretty hard already), they’re just reviews of tiny bottles of Bowmore that I got in the Bowmore Collection.
This is the 15y, a sherry cask finished scotch they call Darkest (not Darkness, or The Darkness). There are actually 2 15y Bowmores, this one, as part of the Core Lineup, and The Laimrig from the Specialist Release line.
simon – oak, grape, cherry, smoke
ryan – wine, creamy, toffee
simon – sherry, caramel
ryan – dried fig
simon – almost soapy, no burn, very smooth
ryan – some burn, lots of wine
Try it? If you’re a Bowmore fan. Buy it? No.
