Of course, one of the ever so popular Islay whiskies had to sneak into this Signatory review - so lets have a Bowmore!

Bowmore 2002 9yo 60,3% 05.09.2002/14.05.2012 ex-bourbon barrel#800406, 223 bottles, Signatory Exclusively for Denmark

Bright gold in colour

Vanilla hit, then peat and flowers, heather and earthy notes.
Then butter on a hot frying pan and warm sand.

A fire in a flower shop? The Bowmore style is there for sure, but its pleasant and not FWP in style. Extremely drinkable at full strength (60,3%).

Vanillas and flowers by the truckload in the aftertaste on this one. I'm also thinking pancakes made on a metal plate over a campfire. Water brings out more peat and softens the vanilla.

My guess is this was a 1st fill bourbon barrel...

A delicious young Bowmore!

Finally, Thanks to Søren for the samples
