Bowmore 1989 23 Years - Port Cask Matured 70cl
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.
TASTING NOTES (whiskyfun.com)
Colour: orangey amber. Nose: this baby's having a little trouble after the previous ones, the smoke being more discreet. We're actually much more on red fruits, plums, cherries, raspberries... In the background, more farmy (hints of cowstable) elements but very little lavender or violets if any. Mellower than expected. With water: once again it's struggling a bit after the big young ones. I seem to find a little geranium water, maybe rosehip or hawthorn. Mouth (neat): does smoked mulled wine exist? Or smoked fruitcake? Oranges, sweet wine, blackberries, more plums, cinnamon, cloves, star anise... With water: Seville oranges and more honey now. Orange blossom honey? Finish: medium length. More and more oranges, a little pepper, more cinnamon... Mulled wine indeed. Comments: a good one but maybe only for Christmas time. I liked the younger ones better.Â SGP:555 - 85 points.
