Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 
Bottled by: The Alistair Walker Whisky Company 70cl / 48.3%

Release number 18 is from the much loved and very well-known Bowmore Distillery.

A firm favourite amongst Islay whisky fans, Bowmore has produced some iconic bottlings over the years, and this bottling echo's some of those awesome characteristics such as tropical fruits, soft peat and an elegant style.

Another winner, and because we love Bowmore so much, this is one of our favourite Alistair Walker bottlings to date.

This Bowmore was distilled in 1997 and aged in a single PX sherry hogshead #2688 until it was bottled 22 years later at a natural cask strength of 48.3% with a yield of just 314 bottles.

Tasting Notes

Alistair's Tasting Notes
Colour: Chestnut. 
Nose: Sweet & phenolic - that unmistakeable Islay peat reek is there, but softened with age. Cigar smoke - fruity and spicy. Big notes of burnt toffee. Parma violet notes linger. Mossy and earthy.
Taste: An oily, viscous dram. Big legs. Soft peat and herbal, medicinal notes combine seamlessly with some very sweet flavours - Demerara sugar, caramelised treacle and cinnamon. Chocolate chip brioche rolls and blueberries.
Finish: Soft and elegant.
