Bowmore 27 Year Old - Timeless Series
This is a 27 year old single malt from Islay's Bowmore Distillery, which has been released as part of the very snazzy Timeless Series.
It was matured initially in sherry and ex-bourbon casks for 15 years, and then moved over to first-fill Oloroso sherry butts for another 12 years. Following that, the whisky was bottled up at cask strength, and has been presented in a very stylish box alongside an actual hourglass!It counts down three minutes, which is time enough for you to really savour the whisky's nose before you take your first sip.
Aromas of stewed plums, raisins, sultanas, toffee and liquorice fill the nose, complemented by notes of Montecristo cigars, roasted coffee beans, chestnut honey, beeswax and dark chocolate throughout the palate.
