Bowmore Tempest 55.9%, 700ml
From the oldest distillery on Islay comes the fifth release of Bowmore's 10 year old Tempest single malt Scotch whisky. This annual release is matured in first-fill bourbon casks and presented at cask strength. These often go down a storm, especially with fans of peated whisky.

Palate: Tinned mandarin slices, sweet nougat, vanilla and gentle peat interwoven throughout.
Finish: Lemon, peach and sea salt.
