A cask-strength 10yo from Bowmore, Tempest has been vatted from first-fill bourbon casks. The sweet-tinged, oaky nose gives no indication of the fantastic maelstrom of smoke and spice that follows on the palate. This may be the best 'standard' distillery-bottled Bowmore of the 21st century.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    Nose: Very appetising whiffs of smoke and sweetness: iodine, coal and wet bonfire balanced with forward notes of barley sugar, honey and a hint of marmalade and cream toffee. Pleasantly oaky.  Develops on summer fruit squash and faint hints of the exotic fruits that much older Bowmores are famed for.  Also a pleasantly musty spice.

    Palate: Big bonfire notes, quite fiery.  BIG spicy black pepper and chilli notes, wrapped in thick wood and coal smoke.  Much more savoury and powerful than suggested by the nose.

    Finish:  The dusty oak notes from the nose emerge as the conflagration of coal and smoky spices fades.  Finally some sweetness very late on.

    Comment:  The best 'standard issue' distillery-bottled Bowmore we've had in years.
