Every once and a while a Whisky Lady treats herself or is treated to a special whisky… and is generous enough to share it with all of the Whisky Ladies. That was exactly the case for this particular 27 year old Bowmore bottled by Wemyss.
Bowmore “BBQ Mango Salsa” 27 year (1989/2016) 46% (Wymess) Bottle 234/234
- Nose – Random tropical fruit, nose gets sweeter and sweeter, then out comes a true barbecue delight
- Palate – Smokey, balanced, surprisingly light and very tasty
- Finish – Long, subtle, light spice, brown sugar and vanilla
Yes there is grilled pineapple and rich barbecue sweet flavours. It is indeed aptly named. And a most enjoyable whisky.
Here is what the Wemyss folks have to say about this dram:
“This hogshead serves up charcoal smoked mackerel with a mango salsa side.”
