Oooh... nice! I haven't tried Bowmore (or many others, yet). I'm a Scotch newb who loves it peaty and smoky. Islay is probably my region. My favourites of the few I've tried are Laphroig and Lagavulin.
I've had to give up red wine, which was one of the great loves of my life. I drink white now, which is mostly fine, but there's an itch it doesn't scratch. Scotch, with its richness and complexity, gives me a bit of what I'm missing.
I'd love to come by for a wee dram.
If you want drama to stop following you everywhere, try letting go of the leash.
