Bowmore translates to 'sea rock' and one of the few that hand shovels it's malt. Tempest is aged in first fill ex-bourbon, and released in late 2010. The nose embraces you with woodfire smoke, honeycomb, wildflowers, citrus freshness and a pinch of salt. Spicy pepper awakes the taste buds, followed by tangy saltiness and the sweetness of lemon sherbert. The finish is long and dry, laced with citrus notes and ashy smoke.
