Bowmore 1988 Bottling Note

A well-matured Bowmore single malt, released originally for the Travel Retail market. This expression began its life in 1988 and was filled into first-fill bourbon casks, where it slumbered until 2017. It still manages holds on to plenty of the classic Islay smokiness through the long maturation, which is always a wonderful thing.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Diced almond, cherry bakewell, toasted oak and sea breeze (as well as a touch of burnt ends).

Palate: Hearty oak, buttered toast, seaweed, caramel sauce, slightly floral at points.

Finish: Lingering hints of citrus blossom petals and smoked meat.

What a beautiful dram. Got a shot of this whilst on vacation in usa. It is sublime. Melt in your mouth caramel, subtle hints of smoke, buttery, fruity, delicate flavours. Complex and bursting with flavour. A future classic. This is not a bottle for the sharing cupboard.

Amazing first expensive whisky purchase.

Many cheaper drinks do not taste like they claim to. I could taste hints of many different subtle flavours throughout this dram. I absolutely loved this. First class service from Master of Malt too. Thanks.
