700ml // 46.0% ABV
Distilled in 2001, this 11 Year Old Bowmore came from two casks and was subsequently finished in a Pedro Ximinez cask. Bottled by Carn Mor as part of their Strictly Limited range this is a release of 549 bottles.
Nose: Fresh, phenolic peat and a smoky cocoa. Seaweed and mixed peels.
Palate: Creamy and mouth-filling. A little cereal with supporting Corinth raisins coming through.
Finish: Gentle smoke and malty coffee.
Overall: This is a fine example of a carefully sherry-influenced Bowmore. Delightful stuff.
