Notes

Bowmore is the capital of Islay. Its namesake distillery lies on the shores of Loch Indaal. It’s one of the few to retain its own malting house, which provides the peated barley used to make the whisky.

The nose immediately gives Bowmore’s trademark fusion of soft coastal peat smoke and thick tropical fruits. However, this whisky goes on and on, developing into a sensory labyrinth of cigar smoke, harbour rope, grapefruit juice and dark chocolate. While the nose alone could keep one contented for hours, the palate is equally phenomenal: initially, it gives delicate peat smoke with slight spice before an explosion of pineapple and mouth-watering guava on the back palate, which lingers long on the finish. This whisky serves as an affirmation, if it were required, that late 1990s Bowmore is amongst the greatest whisky ever created.
