Tasting Notes

Nose: An apple-led, aromatic nose with hints of salted butter and old ropes, a little gentle peat and juicy barley.


Palate: Peated and lightly ash-like with hints of pear juice, barley sugar, a little linseed oil and just a touch of sticking plasters.


Finish: Cocoa and seaweed on the finish.


Tasted by: The Chaps at Master of Malt


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.
