Bowmore Vault Edition First Release Atlantic Sea Salt
Peated Single Malt
Bowmore // Islay, Scotland
Atlantic Sea Salt is the first release in the Bowmore Vault Edition series which focuses on a different element in the distillery's character. The single malt matured in Bowmore's No. 1 Vaults, established in 1779, for an undisclosed amount of time. It is bottled at 51.5% ABV.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"On the nose gentle aromas of coconut, vanilla and tropical fruit (white pineapple) with little to no indication of peat or smoke. The palate follows up with a salted caramel chocolate square. Smoky aftertaste in nature, but not overly peated. The finish was a bit of an oily surprise with salty lingering features. Complex dram from start to finish. A bit pricy but for the hard-core Bowmore fans, likely a must have for their collection."
