The fourth release in Bowmore's Tempest series, taking a small batch of first-fill bourbon casks and marrying them before bottling at cask strength. A classic example of relatively young and fully flavoured Bowmore.Tasting Notes (1)
- Liquorice root
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Sweet grain, coal smoke, concentrated fruit and spice, grapefruit skin, butter icing and a meaty hint hiding in the middle, but it all felt a bit ‘compressed’. With water it sweetened up, adding milk chocolate, sweet and sour apples, pine needles, grapefruit, cinnamon and burning spices appearing. The smoke expanded into a sweeter coal dust laden smoke, with some coal tar, wet wool and brine.
Neat, it started with sour cream and vanilla, lemon zest, bitter orange, brine and tar, before bursting into sweet coal and green wood. With water, there was lots of sweetness, with creamy fruit (cheap strawberry ice cream?) turning darker through liquorice to burning pine needles.
It seemed to finish quickly with a touch of wood and apple skin, but reappeared after a few seconds with vanilla, fruit skin and some floral notes. Water made the finish more consistent, with floral notes, fruity sweets, dark wood, and a mix of light and heavily toasted grain.

Uh, my first bottle emptied so quickly, I hard noticed its flavour profile. So, ... onto the second, now ! Talk later...
Absolutely glorious - I will be buying future batches for many years to come. Stunning peated whisky. Nose – Swimming pool, new plastic, toast, coastal brine. Body – Explosive mouthfeel, massive body, loads of oak and salt but beautifully integrated. Remarkable. Finish – Long, smokey, toasted finish, aniseed balls.
A very unique whisky. Smokey, spicy and peaty at the start, then it switches and reveals its sweet notes like caramel and vanilla. I really enjoyed this dram.
