Interesting, delicate and quite creamy but with an overriding chalky nature that screams BOWMORE at me in big letters, coupled with either a refill sherry cask or mixture of refill sherry/bourbon cask maturation this remains highly drinkable but not overly impressive for me.
Some superb qualities from the aged tropical fruit medley to the masses of honey and beautifully complimentary spice from those ex-bourbon casks.
