The fifth release of Bw in the Elements of Islay series is a vatting of casks – the youngest of which was distilled in 1996. With close to two decades in cask, this has developed lovely coastal, rock-pool notes and sweet fruit with light peat smoke. A classic Bowmore of its era, we think this is possibly the best Bw yet and certainly not to be missed.Tasting Notes (1)
The purest form of modern Bowmore. It’s got it all going on. 90 points. Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com

Tasting Notes by Rocky
Combination of smoke and citrus notes, with sour lemon and juicy orange.
Light at first, then the peat slowly builds. The citrus element from the nose becomes greener and more lime-like.
Medium to long, the peat slowly dissipates to leave a refreshing dryness at the very end.
A solid Bw. There’s a good, but not overpowering, level of smoke all the way through. Very similar in style to Bw4, but slightly less fruity.
