Bowmore Mariner 15 Year Old Islay Single Malt Whisky

Best Buy

The initial nosings encounter hints of sweet oak and honey rather than salt/brine; aeration stimulates the gentle sea salt component as the oak/fruit element recedes to the background. Palate entry is succulent, elegant and creamy sweet; at midpalate, tastes of cocoa, coffee bean, butterscotch and caramel blossom on the tongue. Finishes sweet, viscous and maple-like. Shows an extraordinary amount of grace and harmony. P.P.
