This alluring, well aged single malt whisky from Bowmore Distillery, with its initial well rounded smoky timbre and familiar Islay notes, has been enhanced by additional maturation in a first growth Château Latour wine barrique from the famous vineyard in Bordeaux. It imparts base notes of abundant wine fruits, which combine with the traditional peaty medicinal aromas associated with Islay malts. Starting with a pleasing charcoal dryness on the tongue, the evocative flavours of Christmas cake, dried fruits, spices and leather develop across the palate, all graced with berry influences from the Latour cask. Together this ensemble transforms to a buttery consistency that slowly departs.
