Review: Bowmore Dorus Mor Batch 1

Paid: $75 for 750ml

Distilled/Owned by: Bowmore / Beam Suntory

Region: Islay

55.1% ABV

Aged For: 10 Years

Mashbill: 100% malted barley

Cask Type: First fill bourbon casks

Chill Filtered: No

Color Added: Yes

Color: Pale Gold

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Strong alcohol hits with smoke, menthol, peat, oak, vanilla, saltwater, citrus

Feel: Medium

Taste: Sharp, pepper, vanilla, oak, smoke, honey, ash and cinders, and lemon juice

Finish: Warm and long lasting, charred wood, spice, pepper, vanilla, caramel, and salt with mossy peat

Thoughts: At first its sharp and slightly harsh, but mellows out with a nice peat punch with a lot of influence from the bourbon casks. The full proof and non chill filter prove Bowmore can put out something that isn’t bland compared to some of my previous experiences.

Score: 80 out of 100
