Bowmore 27 Year Old
70cl / 48.3%
Port Cask Vintners Trilogy
- Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
The third and final entry in the Bowmore Vintner's trilogy, bringing in Portugal's best-known wine export – Port. Matured for 13 years in ex-bourbon casks before being transferred to port pipes for a further 14 years, this whisky is complex and rich, marrying dried-fruit notes from the pipes with fresher toffee and caramel, and, of course, Bowmore's smoky and fruity character. It's bottled at cask-strength, creating an intensely flavoured examination of whisky and wine casks.

Palate: Sweet and salty with a smoky, mixed with sultanas, sugarplums, salted caramel and sweet leathery notes. Pepper and spices with a violet fragrance.
Finish: Earthy carbolic notes, salted dates, dried herbs, sweet tobacco, sweet dried cranberries and a touch of white pepper.

This whisky is the "third movement" of “vintner's trilogy”. Very pleasant and complex on the nose, sweetness with wonderfully balanced peat. On the palate, will get even more intense, mouth-watering, and more aromatic along with those aroma on the nose. Like a waltz with romantic transition. If I had to say something bad for this one would be the price, haha. But without a doubt, highly recommended!
