Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival, 2013. Pours black with no head. Smoke, peat, roast and ashtray. Smooth and slick. Bitter roasted finish. Scopey (16526) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to Matteo. It pours opaque black with a decent tan head. The nose is rich roasted malt, rather oily, sweet vanilla, toffee, cocoa, sweet smoke and dried fruits. The taste is rich roast, oily, toasty, charred wood, burnt coconut, earthy whisky, mild smoked peat and milk chocolate with a smooth finish. Medium - full body, fine carboantion and chewy mouth-feel. All comes together pretty well. Decent, but not nearly as punchy as some of the other whisky barrel versions of this beer. Stuu666 (15526) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2014

Bottle shared at CBC holburn, many thanks to Matteo. Aroma is smoked, phenol, brown malts, Islay malts, rustic. Viscous dark brown coloured pour with a fleeting tan head. Flavour is composed of medicinal phenol, light TCP, brown sugar, nutty and caramel. A but numbing on the tongue. Palate is medium full, moderate carbonation. Good.

Draght @ Borefts 2013. Black colored. Soft but typical Bowmore aroma, strong enough to push away the usual Hel & Verdoemenis aroma’. Initial dark chocolate in the flavor, but seconds later the Bowmore barrel kicks in. Peat, soft but persistant, Citrus in the aftertaste. Nice one! madsberg (11817) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
