Elements of Islay Bw8 51.2% 50cl
A multi-layered Bowmore is a vatting of whiskies distilled between 2001 and 2003. Left to rest and age in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-sherry butts for 16 to 18 years, it showcases its classic and true Islay character through a window of tropical fruits and coastal freshness.
Overall you will find citrus, tropical fruits, coastal brine and smoke. The nose showcases grapefruit mixed amongst notes of brown sugar. A hint of charcoal smoke with baked lemons that develop into a richer, more pronounced tropical note of under-ripe mango! The palate is old-fashioned chocolate limes. Citrus and salt blend perfectly together and form a rather rich fruit note of papaya and kiwi. The finish is dry, herby and the finish lingers with a wave of kiln smoke.
