.bowmore – 17

43% abv, single malt, caramel e150a added

Nose: Funnily enough, the nose is harsh and young, there is a whiff of alcohol, lots of mint and menthol, citrus and a fresh campfire.
Palate: Sweet and fat join in – after some time, with a sharp, bitter smoke on the  tongue.
Finish: A long, spicy and honey-sweet floral finish.
Score: +++++

Conclusion: Pretty nice, but no wow-factor. According to their own website, this dram has been chosen as their favourite by Bowmore’s last three distillery managers, that has given her the nickname ‘Manager’s Dram’.
