Bowmore Small Batch
Tasted as part of the #PeatedMalts Twitter Tasting held by Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from the Whisky Wire I've also had a sample of this sitting in the to do pile for a while now.
There are some lovely floral notes that i like in here along with some gorgeous vanilla, the palate also has enough vanilla for those who like it sweet and enough spice to keep you hooked.
A great wee value dram, and one that you could go back to again and again.
fresh floral notes and a gentle wood smoky maltiness in the background come first before gentle vanilla notes of fresh madagascan vanilla, custard creams and then a blast of parma ham.
gentle mouth prickle and spicy/peppery notes with woodspice and cinnamon being quite strong here, lots of vanilla and custard creams in the background too
vanilla and pepper
