Sweet and full bodied barley wine. The bowmore gives it a little more depth. but it isn’t my favorite spirit for aging.

Poured a clear medium brown with a small off white head. Aroma of meat over the port tones. Medium body, the flavour of the barrel aging just doesn’t mesh at all. Disappointing.

The body is brown-yellow. the taste is sweet-sour, earthy, bitter-sweet, wooden, whiskey, medicin. Special but I don´t like it . 9/6/8/8/-/6

Draft @ Emelisse 27/12/2011 as Xmas Bowmore BA. Orange brumeuse, col est beige crémeux. Arôme de grains avec le profile de Bowmore restant plus en retrait le tout donnant une pointe de cendre et tourbe assez modéré. le tout garde un beau profile sucré malté et caramel. Dommage car le bouquet de Bowmore reste trop discret. En bouche, malt épais, avec une légère présence boisée/fumée avec ce profile tourber et cendre des whisky Islay. Caramel léger et malt grillé, le tout assez doux avec une petite pointe de sucre sur les lèvres. La barrique de Bowmore est agréable, ce qui est bien pour un style de whysly que j’essaie de plus apprivoiser. Would be nice to see how it ages.

At ACBF 2011. Peaty aroma. Just not my favourite flavour. Barley wine hardly comes through. Just too Islay, peaty, touch of sweet toffee.

Benzai (8987) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011
Smell is not the best, at least not what I like. Tastes sort of ’friendly’, soft and ripe. Very nice finish, very nice body and very nice carbonation.

dEnk (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2011
Aroma is sweet malt with a strong bowmore note. Some caramel and fruit. Flavour is deep and full, bitter, yet sweet, lavished in sweet sweet Bowmore. Nice.

skortila (4626) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2011
@ PWBF 2011. The aroma has caramel, orange, wood, whisky. Red-orange coloured beer with no head. The taste is sweet, light bitter, has medicin, oranges, some caramel, toffee. Bit sticky. Well bodied and belly warming. Nice one.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2011
Bottle @ ACBF 2011. A hazy dark amber colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of fruits, apricot, wood, whisky with sweets. The taste has wood notes some bitter vanilla fruity and sweet. The aftertaste is bitter with sweet.

Bottle at ACBF. Very hazy amber beer, nice pale tan head. Sweet malt with marmalade sweet hops supporting the Bowmore whiskey which is not overpowering. A little bubblegum sweetness underneath.
