15 Year Old Laimrig
Tempest Batch #5
First the storm … then the calm.
Matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks, our Master Blender has selected a range of casks that create a tropical storm for the sixth series. One moment your face is washed by the full force of a typhoon, with its salty sea tang. Then next you feel the warmth of the sun’s golden rays on your skin as the clouds disperse and a magical calm descends. Welcome to Islay, where the seasons, moods and flavours all collide. Tempest Batch No. 5 - 55.9% ABV On the eye deep gold. Breathe in white peaches, nectarines and juicy cassis with fresh lime. Sip a wave of vanilla, juicy bursts of mandarin, tangy lime and cassis. Savour rippling layers of nectarine and bourbon vanilla on a salty ocean breeze.
12 Year Old
The Bowmore Balance Complex yet perfectly balanced, our 12 Year Old reflects the raw essence of Bowmore - thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. Bowmore 12 Year Old has received much critical acclaim; the late, great whisky writer Michael Jackson proclaimed it “remarkably long and complex”. We like to think of it as vanilla ice cream at a beach bonfire. Tasting Notes On The Eye: warm amber. Breathe In: subtle lemon and honey, balanced beautifully by Bowmore’s trademark peaty smokiness. Sip: sweet and delicious heather honey and gentle peat smoke. Savour: the long, mellow finish
15 Year Old
15 Year Old | Rich raisins and gentle smoke lead the way to a delicious chocolaty centre. The Darkest Distinction Matured first in bourbon barrels then Oloroso caks, there’s no finer example of a sherry cask finish than our 15 Year Old. It’s the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Year Old the rich, deep colour and robust warming finish. Tasting Notes On The Eye: Burnt Sienna Breathe In: Dark chocolate and raisin aromas compliment the classic Bowmore smokiness Sip: Wonderful cedar wood and rich treacle toffee flavours Savour: Spicy, toffee, sherry and barley
