The fifth in Bowmore’s Tempest series of cask-strength 10-year-old releases. This one, the second under master blender Rachel Barrie, allies some of Tempest 4’s softer side with the intensity and weight of the earlier editions – the best of both worlds
Bottled at 55.9% abv.
Nose: Bourbon with mild peat smoke and a bit of fruit. Let it sit in the glass for a second and a spiced mocha latte comes back first followed by tropical fruits.
Palate: Sweet oak with wood spice. A bit of peat smoke that leads into grilled citrus fruits and a smattering of sea salt and grapefruit.
Finish: Toffee, sandalwood, and dried yellow fruits. There’s a bit of pepper at the end, but nothing too overpowering.
