A delicious Bowmore as part of the Elements of Islay series, and also one of the lesser featured distilleries in the range. Grab this quick! 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 have been produced.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose - Grapefruit 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.
Palate - Old-fashioned chocolate limes. Citrus and salt blend together and further richness is delivered by papaya and kiwi. Buttered samphire lends a coastal feel.
Finish - A dry, herbaceous finish lingers with wave after wave of kiln smoke.
