Bowmore Single Malt Scotch 26 Year Vintner’s Trilogy No. 2
From the Distillery:
“The second in the Vintner’s Trilogy, Bowmore 26 Years Old Wine Matured, spends the first 13 years in ex-bourbon barrels before a second maturation of 13 years in wine barriques, developing a burnt amber color.
“Redcurrant jam, camphor oil and cherry pie intermingle with earthy smoke on the nose, developing into spiced oak, tropical fruits such as papaya and mango and a honeyed sweetness with the addition of water. A full-bodied whisky, on the palate the flavors develop into oak spiced smoke and rich dark chocolate with a long finish and a hint of salt typical of Bowmore.
“Bowmore’s 26 Years Old Wine Matured is bottled at cask strength (48.7% ABV).”
