Bowmore 2001 (Daily Dram Germany)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Bowmore
Another Daily Dram bottling exclusively for Germany. Sold by eSpirits.
Bowmore 9 yo 2001 (46%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams for Germany 2010, bourbon cask)
Nose: Oily and mildly peaty, with charcoal rather than actual smoke. Clear sea-breeze notes. Quite malty as well, with notes of hay and fresh barley. Hints of carbolic soap (nice and harmless). A faint buttery note. Overall quite dry, no particular sweetness to be noted. Mouth: creamy with a peppery kick and some salt. More pronounced peat now. Oily and slightly grassy development. Cold ashes and clean lemon. Finish: medium length, briny with lemon and pepper.
A clean and simple Bowmore, getting close to Coal Ila with its faultless medium peated style. Around € 50.
