This beer is based on Islay like the Ardbeg batch 9 but this one uses Bowmore instead, which is on a different part of the island and is different than the southern ones like Ardbeg or Lagavullin. This beer poured almost black with no light getting through and formed a dark tan foamy head that coated the glass with lace as it subsided. An aroma of malt, scotch/peat, smoke but also a hint of caramel. The flavor was of malt, scotch, smoke and a hint of chocolate. A medium body with some some smoke in the finish, yet some sweetness as well. This scotch combination works better, the irony for me is I prefer the southern Islays like Arbeg.
