This impressive single cask bottling of Bowmore was matured in ex-Bourbon wood before being finished in a PX Sherry cask. Vibrant tropical and citrus fruits mingle with barley, sweet almond, and darker, Sherry influenced fruit and spice. Less medicinal than many Islay single malts, with aromas and flavours of smoky bonfire, barbecue, and smoked paprika. This whisky offers layers of rich flavour that build towards a long and satisfying finish.

Official Tasting Notes

Colour - Chestnut.

Nose - Sweet & phenolic - that unmistakeable Islay peat reek is there, but softened with age. Cigar smoke - fruity and spicy. Big notes of burnt toffee. Parma violet notes linger. Mossy and earthy.

Taste - An oily, viscous dram. Big legs. Soft peat and herbal, medicinal notes combine seamlessly with some very sweet flavours - Demerara sugar, caramelised treacle and cinnamon. Chocolate chip brioche rolls and blueberries.

Finish - Soft and elegant.
