This Bowmore was aged in a port pipe, and has a dark, rich caramel color. The nose is leather, chocolate, and smoke, with a touch of coconut. The taste is intense and slightly smoky with chocolate notes. Water opens it up and reveals the usual Bowmore orange peel notes. The rich sweetness turns to a smoky finish that lingers on the tongue.
