Bowmore White Sands 17 Year Old Review

Bowmore white sands This Bowmore White Sands is part of the new Travel Retail series from Bowmore and the only one of the three new expressions to carry an age statement.

From Bowmore"Bowmore White Sands 17 Year Old is the pièce de résistance in the range. Not only is it Bowmore's Master Distiller Eddie MacAffer's personal favourite, it has also been inspired by the stunning beaches of The Big Strand and Laggan Bay, a stretch a coast just south of the Bowmore distillery. The whisky has been matured for 17 years in Bowmore's legendary No.1 Vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland. Savour notes of rich treacle toffee and ripe exotic fruits bound together by warm peat smoke."

The bourbon influence here works really well, and i enjoyed this, it will be priced around £80 for 70cl.

Many thanks to Bowmore for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


there's a gentle coastal smoke here, smoldering beach campfire type, with coastal saltiness then comes the fruit it's a tropocal fruit explosion with a lump of dried pineapple freshly scraped vanilla seeds rounding this one off.


sweet and juicy with seriously juicy fresh jam, oodles of raisins and some gentle toffee


a hint of pepper on the finish with fresh strawberry
