We already have an autumn, so I went to the stores to get the right shoes. I do not like walking around the shops, so I bought the shoes quickly. On the way out I came across a whisky shop, there I spent much more time. Bowmore 10 years old Tempest Batch V looked at me with “puppy eyes”, so I had to take it home.
What have we got here? 10 years old, first fill Bourbon barrels, non chillfiltered, natural colour and cask strength, or rather batch strength – 55,9% ABV.

My previous Bowmore 10 years old Tempest is Batch 3. At first glance, a shade lighter. Batch V has more citrus and less sweets. The differences between the two editions can be felt, but decent character is preserved. I like both of them. It seems to me that the Batch V has more depth. In the Batch 3 peat flavor dominates, but in the V fruits come to the voice.
Tempest is my favorite version of Bowmore, Batch V is even richer and more complex, so gets an additional point.
