Bowmore 18 Year Old 70cl 43%
Cosseted away in the finest, hand-selected oak casks and allowed to mature at its own sedate pace, this is one of the most remarkable, perfectly balanced malts of its kind. One of our rarest most exceptional bottlings, the stocks of Bowmore 18 Years Old may be limited but there’s no end to its enjoyment.
Aged for a decade in first-fill bourbon casks, with only the No. 1 Vaults’ wall to protect it from the crashing waves beyond, Bowmore Tempest encapsulates all the rugged, stormy sea qualities associated with our weather-beaten distillery. As complex as they come, this golden-coloured treasure still retains Bowmore’s differentiating quality – perfect balance. Bowmore Tempest is released in small batches.
So far they have released three batches of the Tempest Batch numbers 1, 2 and 3.
Nose: Classic Bowmore smokiness, perfectly tempered with creamy caramel, chocolate and ripe fruit aromas.
Palate: Beautiful soft fruit and chocolate balanced with a light smokiness – incredibly complex.
Finish: Long and wonderfully balanced finish.
