Bowmore Tempest 10 Year Old Scotch Whisky 2009 Bottling
Small Batch Release No. 1.
For ten years these first fill bourbon casks have lain in the vaults just inches from the battering waves of Loch Indaal, the result is a whisky bright summer gold in colour.
The nose is engulfed by earthy smoke and a sea salt brine. A little water brings out notes of creme brulee with orange blossom and butter cream.
At first on the palate there is a surprising little burst of citrus, some lemons and orange, then comes the distinct peaty character of Islay, with a taste of the neighbouring sea.
The citrus returns at the end adding balance and complexity to the mouth feel, The finish is long, lingering yet clean. Sit back and enjoy this Bowmore Islay Tempest.
