Bowmore 15 Year Old
Balance of leathery notes of sherry and fruity notes. Ripe mangoes, gummies and gummy bears sit on one side, tarred ropes, burnt sugar, medicated edges, seasoned fruits, and burnt raisins (the ones that swell and become crispy around the edges of the fruit cake) are on the other. When it was in a glass, it became sweeter, along with hints of coconut and vanilla.
Sharp fruity and peat smoke with grapefruit, linseed oil and some floral notes, balanced with black licorice, green leaves and a little menthol. The water brought in more sweetness, with tropical notes, black currant, cinnamon sugar, and fruity chewy notes that evolve with the spicy lebkuchen.
