14 Years Old Signatory TWE Exclusive
- Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A 2000 vintage Bowmore bottled by Signatory as part of the Cask Strength Collection, exclusively for TWE. Matured in a first-fill bourbon barrel, along with fragrant smoke and vanilla sweetness, we really love the fruit that was found in the sample from this cask. These vintages of Bowmore are showing that the distillery is coming back to its tropical best.

Tasting notes by Ollie C
Nose: Tropical fruit juice blended with honeysuckle. There is strawberry and blood orange as well as richer notes of vanilla essence and almond cake. The smoke is in the background and is very subtle, adding depth. Overall, wonderfully balanced between rich wood sweetness and fresh fruitiness.
Palate: The fruit is very much to the fore with passion fruit and pineapple juice. There is a slight chilli spice to it and lots of sweetness from the bourbon cask with classic flavours of coconut and vanilla pods. The feel is soft and creamy with the soft peat with just a hint of the medicinal. The fruit, spice and sweetness are all well integrated.
Finish: Juicy and spicy. The wood is defiantly playing a part here with a touch of dryness that leaves you wanting a little more.

Great malt. Clean and tropical style with maritime character. And hints of coffee and ash. This dram is crystal clear where two great sides unite - salty maritime one with tropical and clean side. Bowmore on it's top form. I am saving my cash to buy one more bottle!
