Bowmore Tempest released


Bowmore has released Bowmore Tempest, a limited edition single malt.
Named after the stormy seas and weather that beats the Islay distillery, Tempest is a small batch release of only 2,000 cases. Aged for 10 years in first fill Bourbon casks which have lain in vaults just inches from the battering waves of Loch Indaal, the result is a whisky "engulfed by earthy smoke and a sea salt brine". A little water brings out notes of crème brulée with orange blossom and butter cream.
Bottled at 55.3% abv (cask strength). RRP £39.99. Distributed in the UK by Cellar Trends.
