Tasting note

  • Appearance : or pâle.
  • Nose : fin, vif. Du foin coupé recouvert d’une fine couche de cendres, voilà ce qu’évoque le premier nez. Rapidement cependant, il devient plus laiteux (bouillie d’orge) et plus fumé. La tourbe attend patiemment son heure. Une fois le moment venu, elle arrive les bras chargés de fleurs blanches et de plantes aromatiques (verveine, sauge). Il est à noter qu’elle fait preuve de beaucoup de minéralité (tuffeau) et d’une grande distinction.
  • Palate : ample, profonde. Nettement plus humide et réglissée, la tourbe précède de peu des fruits exotiques (mangue, passion). Elle s’ouvre sur des épices fortes (poivre noir, muscade) et des agrumes confits (pamplemousse, citron). Le milieu de bouche est quant à lui malté et fumé. Au fur et à mesure, la même tourbe prend des aspects chocolatés et pralinés. En toute fin de bouche, des fruits secs (abricot, amande, noix) mettent en exergue son caractère mature.
  • Overall : ciselée, délicate. Avec beaucoup d’intelligence et de confiance en elles, les notes de tourbe préfèrent jouer à cache-cache avec des fruits rouges (framboise, fraise), des fleurs capiteuses (oeillet, pivoine) et des épices tendres (cannelle, gingembre frais) plutôt que de s’imposer coûte que coûte. Intimement liés, la rétro olfaction et le verre vide oscillent entre la tourbe, le fond d’artichaut, la vanille-bourbon et les feuilles de laurier sauvage.
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

Merchant

One man is behind this young German retailer - Carsten Ehrlich - a man who is similar to his bottlings, which are straightforward with precise and refined flavours. Various “joint-bottlings” resulted from our meeting with him. The first, Bunnahabhain 1975, which is aged in sherry casks, was chosen by the members of our amateurs club last June. The second is a great favourite of the Maison du Whisky team from the closed distillery of Littlemill, released in a completely exclusive bottling aged in a first-fill sherry butt. The last (but by no means least) is the first edition of Redbreast 15 Year Old, which was launched in 2006.
