This whisky is composed of one third of barley malted on site and 2 thirds barley from the English maltings Simpsons. Both varieties have a phenol count of 25 ppm.
A subtle blend of classicism and exuberance, this complex bottling has no problem drawing from its depth the energy and vitality needed to achieve its goal of respecting the inimitable Bowmore style to the letter.
|Nose||Rich and oily. Smoked fish, sage, green olive, incense, cumin, oliy peat, lemon and salt. Allowed to breathe, it becomes exotic with pineapple and banana, vanilla, pepper and clove. Becoming increasingly medicinal, the aromatic palette continually becomes more powerful. Peach and passion fruit appear in a grande finale.|
|Palate||lively and resolute, the attack hits the palate with a first spicy and hot arrow. Next, an oily , vegetal and very saline peat envelops the taste buds. Then come the exotic passion fruits and pineapple with floral notes.|
|Finish||Long and balanced. Delicately smoky and ashy, also creamy custard tart, continually moving back and forth.|
