Bowmore – 12 Enigma
Nose

Palate
Citrus, dark red fruits, chocolate, honey, black berry, raspberry, caramel, raisin, sweet, and some salty and bitter tones in the end.

Finish
Short, bit sweet, liqeurish, and also a little bitter in it.

Score
6,5 out of 10

Tasting scores explained a bit. It all depends on the moment, ambiance etc, but to have a guideline for my own preferences. This differs for each person. See my wish list in the menu above to see what I prefer the most at the moment. A low score will not meen I will maybe give it a second chance on a later time, but for now it is not for me…

1-5   Mhmm... Not liking this one…
5-6   Don’t have to wake me up for this, not bad, but not my preference
6-7   I like, but they just miss something, to make me wanna buy a whole bottle
7-8   Well, you can start waking me up for these, more depth, these I would love to add to my collection
8-9   These are to be enjoyed slowly. These I absolutely would love to have a bottle, but sadly not always in my price range. 
9-10 Well, what can I say, just wow…… No words to describe it. Wake me up now!!
