About this Oxhead Dram-Addicts release
Late 90’s Bowmores are renowned for evoking memories of classical Bowmore styles – coastal, phenolic, and with explosive tropical fruits. This Bowmore ’97 is a slightly “dirty”rendition of this much sought-after profile. Immense and oily, exactly what we’d been hoping for!
