Limited Edition

Bw2 is a travel-retail only expression with malt whisky from a single 1990s’ vintage. Smoke takes a back seat here with Bowmore’s trademark tropical fruit taking centre stage.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Overwhelming tropical fruits – tinned peaches, tinned pineapple, fresh mango and kiwi, banana, lychee, strawberry. Some grassiness behind, develops (natural) caramel and Highland toffee aromas. Almost no discernible smoke.
  • Palate

    Rich syrupy texture, now we find the phenols – wet peat, then honey, flax/wet linen and some of the fruity elements come in, but now with more orangey notes. Peppery and spicy, too, at full strength. Water tames the phenols and releases more of the lovely fruity notes.
  • Finish

    Long and hot at full strength – mellow and fruity with a touch of water.

Bw2 Reviews

  • Smoke, fizzy lemon and hints of pineapple in the background. A classic example of the 1990s’ Bowmore style.
