Bowmore Tempest Limited Edition

The long anticipated Bowmore Tempest is a small batch release of only 2,000 cases from Islay's oldest distillery. For ten years these first fill Bourbon casks have lain in vaults just inches from the battering waves of Loch Indaall. As the name suggests, the taste of Bowmore Tempest really captures the rugged and stormy sea qualities that have been associated with its weather beaten distillery.

The latest release from the Islay distillery of Bowmore is a cask strength, limited edition (2,000 cases) bottling by the name of Tempest. It comprises 10-year-old whisky which has been matured in first-fill Bourbon casks. According to Bowmore marketing manager Kirsteen Beeston, “We are so proud to reveal Bowmore Tempest. It’s a balanced, yet complex, dram that really captures the spirit of the distillery on Islay and the craftsmanship that has been applied to make this beautiful tasting malt.” Initially, very fruity on the nose, with peaches and oranges, while peatiness develops, along with an edge of salt. Citrus fruit and barley sugar on the palate, backed by quite subtle peat. The finish is clean and lengthy, with lingering brine. 55.3% ABV, 70cl, £39.99, specialist whisky merchants
