Bowmore Springtide 70cl 54,9% OP=OP
When Powers Combine...
Just as the tides are goverened by the moon, Islay is ruled by the elements. Bowmore Springtide shows what can be acheived when the two come together.
The highest tide of all, caused by the orbital alignment of the earth, sun and moon, the springtide has a special significance for Bowmore. If there were ever a time for our legendary No. 1 Vaults below sea level to be engulfed by the ocean, this would be it. Yet somehow the maturation warehouse remains.
Matured in hand-selected Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, the beautifully rich expression of Bowmore abounds in chocolate and sticky figs, which balance perfectly against the classic sea-salt peatiness. The palate, rich in treacle toffee and raisins meets dark sherry with a lingering smoky finish.
