This is the second release in a limited edition release of 3 Wood Matured expressions from Bowmore
Nose: Old leather, dark honey, ripe figs, hints of earthy smoke, aromatic spice, antique oak, sweet raisin and marzipan.
Palate: Dry and earthy to begin then reveals spicy dark fruit, red berries, aromatic tobacco, leafy/forest floor notes, toasted oak, smoked treacle toffee.
Finish: Dark fig jam, chewy sherried oak, black cherry, marzipan on christmas cake that has been close to a coal fire, more leather and smoked treacle on a long finish.
A Bowmore that comes across more mature than its 16 years with very upfront sherry oak and a more full bodied style.
