BOWMORE 10 YEAR OLD Tempest - Batch 5

Single Malt, Scotland / Islay 70cl Ref: 18950

Aged in first-fill bourbon barrels, the fifth release from Bowmore Tempest showcases one of best qualities of this emblematic single malt: its generosity. The rich and intense peat – the backbone to this whisky – pervades throughout and enhances the many other elements in the aromatic and gustatory palate. Only the very best single malts can be so altruistic whilst also demonstrating so much presence.

Profile: voluptuous, powerful. Peat is at the centre of the aromatic palate, fine, mineral and liquoricey. Chocolate and vanilla notes. Spices are also present here (curry, star anise and chilli) and dark fruit.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : golden yellow.
  • Nose : fine, voluptuous. Right from the initial nose, peat is on the forefront, very present but at the same time very subtle. Becomes liquoricey, chocolatey, salty, iodine and vanilla-scented. Develops into spices (curry, star anise), heady florals, (hyacinth, lily), citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) and ripe fruit (white-fleshed peach).
  • Palate : firm, powerful. Spices (nutmeg, black pepper) liven up the start of the palate. Develops into dark fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry) and vanilla pods with spicy undertones. Peat then comes back onto the front scene, accompanied by seaweed salt.
  • Overall : long, full-bodied. Both honeyed (acacia) and liquoricey, it accentuates the marine character of the palate. A cloud of smoke gradually covers the ripe fruit (pear, tangerine) and aromatic plants (sage, vervain). The retro-olfaction is marked by fresh walnut, vanilla and salted butter caramel. The empty glass is malty, peaty and ashy.
The brand

The brand

Bowmore, founded in 1779 in the town of the same name on the Loch Indaal coast, is the oldest distillery on the Isle of Islay. The No.1 Vaults has played a major role in building its renown, not simply because of the quality of the casks it holds, but also because of its exceptional location. It is actually located below sea level, with the seawall acting as the one of the walls of the vault. The distillery is also famous for its medium-peated bottlings and the special cask finishes that have won it huge acclaim. Still operating according to traditional methods, its barley is partially malted on site. Find out more
