Bw5 - Elements of Islay

The fifth release of Bw in the Elements of Islay series is a vatting of casks – the youngest of which was distilled in 1996. With 19 years in cask, this has developed lovely coastal, rock-pool notes and sweet fruit with light peat smoke. A classic Bowmore of its era, we think this is possibly the best Bw yet and certainly not to be missed. The purest form of modern Bowmore. It’s got it all going on. 90 points –  Serge Valentin, [+]
