Generally characterised by their peaty, phenolic, medicinal taste. Probably not the easiest, love them or hate them, definitely an acquired taste
Black Bowmore. This is it- I had one glass, in the pub in Bowmore after a fine platter of seafood. I will never, ever, be able to afford a bottle. Unforgettable. Specially chosen barrel, matured next to Loch Indaal, salt, seaweed, fruity, treacle, everything.
Phenolic, medicinal, great. My comments could equally apply to
although the latest standard 40% is not up to the taste of the 43% of a few years ago, and to
Caol Ila
the 18 year old has full peaty flavour.
