Bowmore Straight From The Cask 2000 ex Bourbon Review

Bowmore Ex Bourbon Cask Part of the Bowmore tasting in No1 Vaults with Eddie MacAffer after our tour during the #IslayRoadTrip with Steve (@steveprentice) from Somerset Whisky Blog and Jon (@dvdbloke) from Scotch and Sci-fi

After our really in depth and knowledgable tour with Eddie we stopped into the No1 Vaults for a quick dram valinched straight from the cask as we started with this lovely 2000 vintage (14 year old) from an ex bourbon cask.

Thanks again to Eddie at Bowmore for the awesome and in depth tour and for the wonderful tasting.

Tasting Notes & Details


The nose begins with some real creamy buttery notes with some gentle banana loaf notes with a hint of gentle wood burning smoke, some foam bananas in there too


The taste is rich banana cake with a vanilla butter sauce and lots of toffee creeping in


sweet and vanilla fill the rest of the finish
