A fruity 19-year-old Bowmore bottled by German independent The Whisky Agency exclusively for us here at The Whisky Exchange. Run through with smoky maritime character, it's got piles of fresh fruit as well, harking back to old-school Bowmore. A great dram that shows off our favourite style of Bowmore.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: A seaside sweetshop – minty rock, aniseed balls, wine gums and midget gems scoffed on a beach with a splash of sea spray and peat smoke winding down from nearby chimneys. Fruitiness sits at the core, with pineapple, mango and Granny Smith apples surrounded by barley sugar. Rock pools and sea breezes sit around the outside.

    Palate: Gentle and definitely Bowmore. Soft and spicy peat smoke blankets juicy wine gum and jelly baby fruit, with chocolate limes and black liquorice to follow. The chocolatey notes build, adding a bittersweet backbone to the fruity character.

    Finish: More chocolate limes along with a hint of mint. That fades to leave a puff of peat smoke.

    Comment: It's fruity, it's got a maritime tang, and a lick of peat smoke: this is the sort of Bowmore I like. It's not fruity like a 1960s' bottling, but its definitely facing in the right direction.
