In the last few years I have troubles enjoying Bowmore whiskies. It’s not the distillery fault that my taste and preferences has changed over the years, but I do keep tasting them, hoping to encounter one that I’ll like and as a service to my readers
The latest Bowmore I tried was the 15th release from the independent bottler Dramfool. It was distilled in september 1996, matured in a refill bourbon hogshead and bottled in maj 2018, producing 299 bottles at 52.9%.
Bowmore 1996 21 Year Old Dramfool (52.9%, £125 )
Nose : Starts very floral, gentle peat, lactic, wisps of smoke....
