Bowmore Port Cask 1989
Aged 23 Years
A 1989 vintage Bowmore which was aged entirely in port casks for 23 years and bottled in 2013. This was distilled in the year that Suntory first bought a stake in Morrison Bowmore distillers. This has notes of blood orange, spices and winter fruits.
Colour - Deep mahogany with a rich ruby blush.
Nose - Rich, smoky and very complex. Plum skins, black cherries and dark chocolate are interwoven with wood smoke and sea-salt, seductive sandalwood and walnuts thrown on a roaring fire.
Taste - A swathe of rich smoky velvet brings luscious layered autumn fruits, tingly winter spices, blood orange and sensual winter black truffles.
Finish - Long and rich with smoke infused blood orange, truffle and walnut oil.
