Door number 17 of the Drinks by the Dram Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Bowmore 15 Year Old Darkest is revealed!
On the nose I can find a sweet and thick creamy mix of flavours. Cherry, toffee, light smoky and warm spices. A hint of dark chocolate and mocha together with vanilla, raisins, blood oranges, pine trees, salty liquorice, hint of wood and roasted malt notes.
The palate continues beautifully on this set of flavours found on the nose with the spices and citrus fruits now coming more to the front. Thick flavours, that feels almost that you could slice through them of dried vigs, sultanas, Christmas cake, fudge, liquorice and marzipan.
A long finish with a mix of mint, chocolate and coffee note coming forward in the end. Thanks to #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskyAdvent !
