The Bowmore renaissance continues apace. Neat, his limited edition youngster, cask-strength and un-chill-filtered, starts with a beguiling mix of peat smoke, citrus and creme-caramel. The palate adds a little sweet ginger and cinnamon to the mix, and the long and pleasing finish ends on honey, wood-smoke and just the right amount of peppery spice. Adding water throws the spice and sweetness into the background while bringing the peat and wood influences more to the fore. Unusually though for a cask-strength offering, the Tempest is both more interesting and more enticing neat. It's also an alarmingly easy drinker for one so strong. You have been warned.

The Tempest is a limited edition of 2000 or so bottles worldwide, and is my new favourite from the folks on School Street.

A lot of distilleries are going through a renaissance. Good to see Bowmore getting in the act...

My girlfriend found me a bottle of this in the states and got it for me for Christmas. Looking forward to enjoying a glass soon.
