8:32:09 pm cowfish: @petedrinks It was a bit intense and confused for me neat. Can see the appeal but I'm a lover of low strength drams these days #loveBowmore

8:32:30 pm steveprentice: So #LoveBowmore dram 3 was a Tempest IV, and a dramspanker (if I may borrow that word) it is! Strong and unctuous, yummy. @TheLadyBlender

8:32:44 pm cowfish: @steveprentice Please don't borrow that word #LoveBowmore

8:32:52 pm MaltReview: #LoveBowmore 4 Deliciously viscous. Just sits in the mouth perfectly. The sweet flavours just fall over themselves in the mouth.
