Looking out the window of Bowmore Distillery, the Black Rock of Islay rises majestically out of Loch Indaal. Matured predominately in ex-Spanish sherry casks, it is a delicious balance of peat smoke, treacle toffee and orange from first sip to last. Nose: in classic Bowmore smokiness infused with raisins, pepper, warm cocoa beans and burnt orange. Palate: rich sherry and peat smoke followed by blackcurrant, treacle toffee and cinnamon spice. Finish: Beautifully balanced peat smoke and sea salt.
