1995 Bowmore 22 Year Old K&L Exclusive "Sovereign" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (stained labels) (750ml)

SKU #1330633

We're going back to the Bowmore well again this winter, albeit with an older cask (22 years instead of 20) for an ever better price ($139 instead of $149)!! Aged in a refill hogshead cask and bottled at full proof with no chill-filtration, this is yet another must-have Islay malt for peat fans who like a bit of richness with their smoke. What stands out immediately about this 22 year old Bowmore is the creamy texture and the sweetness of the malt. The initial palate sensations are sweet vanilla and soft, supple oak, before the phenolics kick in and couple with the salty brine, emblematic of a whisky clearly aged by the sea. The finish brings forward notes of ash and campfire smoke, smoldering embers intermixing with what's left of the sweet malt character. With supplies of rare Islay casks dwindling on the wholesale market currently, we're thrilled with the pricing and we hope you are as well. This Bowmore 22 year is representative of everything our direct purchasing program strives to achieve.

This is one of the best expressions of Islay peat that I’ve ever tasted. The peat is subtle on this one, almost lost in the aromas of honeyed grains and marmalade on the nose. On the palate, the smoke shows up elegantly behind the rich creamy sweetness of the malt, eventually matching that intensity for a full proof, 51% abv masterpiece. The complex and delicious flavors stick around for an incredible finish.
