Bowmore Gold Reef
This Bowmore Gold Reef is part of the new Travel Retail series from Bowmore.
From Bowmore"Venture further out to sea, deep beneath the waves, and you'll be greeted by the island's reefs. The warm glow of the sun's rays reflecting off the coral seabed can be seen in the deep golden hues that catch your eye inside every bottle of Gold Reef. A satisyingly smooth malt, it's matured mostly in first-fill ex-bourbon casks with notes of vanilla, citrus fruits and coconut milk.."
This is a perfectly drinkable Bowmore, it has everything you expect from the range with smoke, citrus fruits and vanilla, easy to drink, it will be priced around £60 for a litre.
Many thanks to Bowmore for the official sample.

smoke at first with some grated ginger and chalky with a hint of meat, like eating pastrami off a bit plasterboard
