Bowmore 25 Year Old
A 25 year old from the Bowmore distillery aged in American bourbon and Spanish sherry casks. The sherry influence combines wonderfully with the coastal, smoky distillery style to create a sublime aged single malt.
Nose: Dark fruits and coastal smokiness. Slightly herbal.
Palate: Characteristic peat smoke, cocoa and dry, creamy nuttiness.
Finish: Gentle smoke, oak, mocha, hints of prunes.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Bowmore 25 Year Old
Quote 1 “My wife/mother in-law bought this amazing whisky for me this Christmas. When I poured my small taster, I have to agree with ‘The Chaps’ on the tasting notes–spot on! I was only disappointed in the smokiness of this dram; it’s very nice on the nose, but not so noticeable on the palate. Having many different samples of Bowmore (my favorite probably being the 17yr White Sands), I expected a stronger peat flavor. Really, I didn’t take into consideration the ‘barrel’ flavor being more potent than the peat, which is consistent with a well-aged release. The alcohol is not very noticeable either, but that’s typical of a quality whisky anyway. 10/10 for sure after my two small tastings!“

Quote 3 “ The smoothest scotch I’ve ever tasted–warm, spicy, soft, woody. Must save my pennies for another.”
