Bowmore Tempest 10 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Bowmore's entry into the limited edition, small batch market brings us the might Tempest. The aromas are phenolic, mixed with vanilla and damp earth. There's a kiss of sweetness underlying the palate all the way through where the campfire smoke and dirty oils kick in. It's a true tempest in profile, a flurry of charcoal, peat, moss, and spice that leaves a your mouth in a thick, damp fog. The finish is all brine, green olives, and mint and you'll have to brush for hours to get it to leave. You could sit around and pick this whisky apart all day.
