Whisky presentation as I like.
The last post in the mini-series of Bowmore I am devoting to the most interesting one to date, Bowmore 10 years old Tempest. It is a Batch 3 of this release and like the previous it is characterized by a natural presentation. So we have a natural color, unchillfiltered and 55.6% ABV. The bottle I bought during a visit to the distillery on Islay, so I have the additional sentiment to it.
N: a lot of smoke, tar and asphalt, peat of course, deeper quite a few lemon juice, orange, further ash, here and there something like bouillon, the addition of water occur sweeter tones, vanilla, toffee, and wet straw, wet grass, more ash, grilled seafood – calamari, oysters,
T: ash, mint, we have a 55.6% ABV so the water is needed, after adding it, still a lot of ash, orange emerges, light bitterness of grapefruit, ginger, slightly sweet, like Werters Original candies,
F: long with ash, traces of orange and slightly bitter.
Bowmore 10 years old Tempest is presented in a great way, natural color, unchillfiltered and 55.6% ABV. It all pays off in the tasting impressions, the smell and taste are intense and rich. They can also be diversified by gradually adding water.
