Bowmore Tempest Batch 5
I tasted this Bowmore Tempest Batch 5 whilst at the Morning Masterclass at The Scotch Whisky Experience in March 2016.
Bowmore Tempest is one of those iconic Bowmore drams, with Batch 4 being the last one i had the pleasure of, this smoky Bowmore matured in first-fill American Oak gives huge vanilla and smoky seaside.seafood notes that take you right to the doors of the distillery, this dram is an experience all on it's own.
Available online and in store at The Scotch Whisky Experience (although they only deliver within the UK) although it is also available from most good specialists such as Master of Malt also.
Thanks to The Scotch Whisky Experience Who oranised for me to participate in this tour.
The nose begins with smoky seafood and seaside notes, beach like sand in the air, vanilla and light fresh ozone
Earthy and sweet smoke, smoked herrings and light vanilla with a hint of citrus juice over the top
tangy but gentle, sweet smoke lasts
