TASTING NOTES (by Whiskyfun.com)

Not much to say, except that this shouldn’t be too bad. Colour: gold. Nose: a shame that it’s so strong, it’s all a little blocked just now. What’s funny is to notice that there’s a lot happening behind the high alcohol while not being able to detect much of it. It’s a bit like listening to a string quartet with earplugs, if you see what I mean. So, with water: becomes more medicinal, ala old Laphroaig. Bandages and seawater, wet clothes, old cellar, raw wool, hay... Great but a little unusual. Some putty too, tar, chocolate… The jury’s still out. Mouth (neat): no, this makes you want to swear. It’s immense, it’s out of this world, it’s absolutely stunning and it just leaves you speechless. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. …. With water: Beethoven (conducted by Frank Zappa). Finish: as long as a Fidel speech. Amazing combination of all things from the sea with all smokes (yeah, including that one) and all citrus fruits. Even salted kumquats. Comments: my only regret is that this is no surprise. These late 1960s Bowmores for various Italian condottieri have all been utterly stunning. Mamma mia! SGP:467 - 96 points.
