Bowmore 10 Tempest, Small Batch Release VI, First Fill Bourbon, 54.9% abv.
Bowmore's Tempest product line is a collection of cask strength 10 years. Batch 6 was from 2015.
Nose: peat smoke, lightly toasted coconuts and pineapple, typical Islay.
Palate: sour, grass, light sour wood, light peat.
Finish: short, no smoke, no fruit. Not much going other than abv.
Dry glass: light wax and light hints of fruit.
This was surpringly nice, from nose to palate it was quite enjoyable. For some reason I didn't taste the abv. The aromas from the dry glass were quite surprising though.
