Nose: a fresh mix of oranges and sea air. Nice and soft, citrus is the main component here. Then the floral notes appear, with hints of violets. Totally different than those soapy lavender Bowmores though. Strawberry candy! Some vanilla cream as well. Some maritime notes. Mouth: citrus again, but the peat kicks in now. Nice evolution with rather big salty notes, oranges and a nice bitterness. Earthy smoke. Some pepper. Finish: medium length on salt, iodine and slightly bitter green tea.

I have not been a fan of recent official Bowmores, but the least you can say is that this is a nice surprise! The nose is very pleasant and this Tempest is a fresh, enjoyable dram overall. Very good value for money.

I'm aslo quite intrigued by this one. I have to at least put it in my wishlist and keep an eye on it.

Hi Whiskynotes,

I was wondering which cask this review is about. Can anybody compare the casks and tell me which one they prefer?

Tempest is not bottled as one single cask but as a batch made up of several casks. This review is about batch n°1. I've also tried batch n°3 - it was just as good so I think you can rest assured whatever the batch number.

Oh, I thought it were three single casks. Thanks for clearing that up.
