Distillery

In both geography and palate, the whiskies of Bowmore are between the intense malts of the south shore and the gentlest extremes of the north. Their Character is not a compromise but an enigma, and tasters have found it difficult to unfold its complexity. The water used rises from iron-tinged rock, and picks up some peat from the earth as it flows by way of the Laggan, through moss, ferns, and rushes, to the distillery.

 

House Style: smoky with leafy notes (ferns?) and sea air.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Paul Pacult

Nose: Distinctively briny, salty and cotton candy sweet. Then pastry, baked pear, and butterscotch.

 

Palate: Rich, almost jammy and peppered with salty/winey flavors that say Bowmore but with greater emphasis on the sweetness.

 

Finish: Long, nicely balanced between the sea salt and the sherry, and succulent.

 

Comment: The superior craftsmanship of Bowmore remains steady and true.
