50cl // 51.6% ABV
Speciality Drinks bottle Islay whiskies as part of their Elements of Islay Range. The iconography is like that of the periodic table and the whiskies are really rather tasty. Bw3 is the third instalment of Bowmore Single Malt Scotch whisky. It doesn’t take a scientist to know that this should be some tasty independently bottled whisky.
Nose: Subtle citrus and dried fruit. Chocolate fudge and a whiff of peat smoke.
Palate: Buttery at the start. Wood smoke develops, fragrant and warming. Citrus follows and grows stronger with a drop of water.
Finish: Sweet and smoky.
Overall: Some proper classic Bowmore notes sit inside this bottle.
