46% | 70cl | NCF | Islay | Peated | ppm
This gem of a single cask release is a 30-year-old from Bowmore, one of Islay's oldest and most important distilleries. Only 184 bottles of this peaty Bowmore that was matured in a hogshead for 3 decades!
NOSE: A mellow yet enticing nose delivers a gentle, herbal smoke like scorched rosemary. Additional sweet notes of saffron custard, freshly baked shortcake and for balance a subtle shellfish like savoury aroma.
PALATE: The rosemary returns on the palate alongside a flash of white pepper and pink peppercorn spice as well as a creamy vanilla evoke a sweetened steak sauce. The sweetness builds into a Edinburgh Rock and raspberry fondant flavour.
FINISH: The smoky finish is gentle like recently doused beach bonfire and lingers for several minutes, delicious.
