An amazing expression, and vastly superior to the previous Darkest edition.
Matured for thirteen years in bourbon casks before being finished in oloroso sherry casks, the nose is an uncanny blend of chocolate fruitiness with the classic Bowmore sea-air freshness (think eating a raisin and biscuit Yorkie while standing on the banks of Loch Indaal). Palate is all smokey, peaty goodness with those refined Bowmore seaweed and pepper notes. Ends on a long and satisfying finish.
Gives its best when allowed to open up in the glass for 15-20 minutes.
