Bowmore, Islay's first single malt whisky, is proud to release the highliy anticipated launch of Tempest V, the fifth in the award winning Tempest series.
Non-chill filtered and aged for a decade in first fill Bourbon casks, Tempest V is a true product of it's environment with the salty ocean breeze and signature dark Islay peat detectable in every mouthful.
As with each release in the Tempest series, Tempest V carries the hallmark style with subtle nuances of mandarin, tangy lime and cassis whilst establishing its own personality, setting it apart from its predecessors, presenting a full, rich and sweet first fill bourbon character.
Master Blender, Rachel Barrie describes the fifth release:
"Bowmore matured in the very highest quality of 1st fill ex bourbon cask maturation revealing harmonious and enveloping layers of honeycomb, rich bourbon vanilla and ripening fruits carried on an Ocean breeze. Tempest V's highly complex layers of silky smooth vanilla and luscious fruit-infused peatiness transports you to the elemental beauty of Islay."
