- Bowmore 22 Year Old Sherry Cask
Douglas Laing Old & Rare Platinum Selection.
Single cask bottling finished in a sherry hogshead (for a good while judging by the colour!).
Distilled November 1987 and bottled April 2010. 244 bottles.
This is not your typical Bowmore. The nose is fresh and carries sweet spices, muscovado sugar and runs to spicy fruit boxes, polished wood and tobacco. The palate is mild, round and has different layers which interchange throughout between spicy toffee and honey, to ashes and a pipe smoke quality. The finish is long and well balanced between sweetness and smoke, spices and ashes.
