|Brand||Xtra Old Particular|
A 1995 Bowmore single malt from indie bottler Douglas Laing, matured in a single refill hogshead for a quarter of a century before being bottled in June 2020 as part of its Xtra Old Particular The Black Series.
Nose: Fresh with a salty / maritime style developing to barley and just a hint of peat smoke and iodine.
Palate: Wonderfully balanced - that typical Islay meaty / charcoal style alongside muscovado sugar, marmalade and vanilla cream.
Finish: Lingering with puffs of smoke and dry earth with a warming spiced oak character.
46.9% ABV 700ml
