Bowmore 15 Year Fèis Ìle 2019
Peated Single Malt
Bowmore // Islay, Scotland
This Bowmore 15 Year was released in honor of the 2019 Fèis Ìle, an Islay Festival of Music and Malt held each spring. This 15 year single malt matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels. Bottled at 51.7% ABV only 3000 bottles were produced.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"A nice salinity gives this Bowmore a subtle coastal influence, as do the kippers, but it's mainly the tropical fruits that strike a note. The palate does show some smoke and tar, but subtly and with great harmony. Slightly briny, but with classic Bowmore fruit in the background: bitter grapefruit, lychees and a touch of lemon peel. Near perfect Bowmore—a stunner worthy of being a Fèis Ìle bottling."
