General description

What you'd expect from Bowmore, just a bit younger and bolder. Fair good balance between sherry and smoke, but both elements are more pronounced than on the 12 y.o. Always a good proposal from Bowmore, surely worth the price.

I understand its discontinued - got this for $60AUD and good value at that price with strong sherry flavour although a little harsh compared to Aberlour 12
