Bowmore 15 Years Darkest

The Bowmore Darkest is a vat of the darkest casks the Blenders can find in the warehouses of Bowmore. Most of the whisky experts look at the age of the whisky. The darkest is a very good example that a whisky with a normal age and a very prominent cask selection can be premium, too.

Nosing: Peat Smoke Sherry Dried Fruit

Taste: Berries more cranberry...like cranberry wrapped in a tobacco leaf. tart and smoky. Sherry notes and smoke wrapped together.

Finish: Sherry Peat Smoke

Comment: So i have to compare this against something like Talisker DE and Ardbeg Uigadeal. This, while good, is probably the weakest of the 3. Less smoky than the Ardbeg, less sherried than the Talisker. It is still good and I enjoy the balance of the two "bomb" profiles, but it's playing both sides of the fence. If you want a balanced peated/sherried whisky, look no further. Most people who are shopping for these want the robust flavors.

Nosing: Peat Smoke Chocolate Dried Fruit

Taste: Peat Smoke Dark Chocolate Raisin Plum Cherry OakSherry

Finish: Long

Comment: A spicy, dark roasted drop of plum, cherry, sherry and chocolate. Rich peat smoke, spice, oak and some cedar make for a great finish. Mouthwateringly moreish, complex and deep. A terrific scotch!

Comment: Was expecting more from Sherry. However, this left me feeling so so. I'm partial due to the fact that I am not a peat freak.
