Islay single malt scotch whisky
This multi-layered Bowmore is a vatting of whiskies distilled between 2001 and 2003. Left to age in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-sherry butts for sixteen to eighteen years, it showcases its classic true-Islay character through a window of tropical fruits and coastal freshness. 1320 bottles produced.
Core FlavourCitrus, tropical fruits, coastal brine, smoke
Cask detailsDistillates from between 2001-2003 aged in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-sherry butts
NoseGrapefruit mixed with brown sugar. A hint of charcoal smoke with baked lemons developing into richer, more pronounced tropical notes of under-ripe mango drizzled with lime juice.
PalateOld-fashioned chocolate limes. Citrus and salt blend together and further richness is delivered by papaya and kiwi. Buttered samphire lends a coastal feel.
FinishA dry, herbaceous finish lingers with wave after wave of kiln smoke.
