Bowmore 25 Years – Symington’s Choice – Signatory Vintage 70 CL 55,9%

Limited Single Cask Scotch Whisky

Bowmore 25 Year Old 1997 vintage Islay single malt Scotch whisky. Single Oloroso sherry butt #2422 bottled February 2023 by Signatory Vintage for the (Andrew) Symington’s Choice collection. 616 numbered bottles.

Nose: paraffin, mineral notes, grapefruits and lime. Hints of sourdough. Then oysters, damp gravel and hints of wet tweed. Apple peelings and barbecued pineapple. Lovely mango custard with vanilla as it opens up, as well as a whiff of medicinal menthol. Pretty perfect.

Mouth: really perfect. Exotic fruit juice mixed with seawater. Mango, pink grapefruit and passion fruits. Lemon liqueur, waxy hints and a slightly acrid, grassy smokiness. A few drops of late harvest Riesling too. Increasingly coastal, with drops of herbal tea towards the end.

Finish: long, slightly drier and more herbal, with vague smoke, a little beeswax and the usual seawater.

A beautiful hattrick! Overall this Bowmore stands out in my book, but I’m in a period when I’m rather partial to these tropical fruits with evolved peat. It needs some time but it’s all I ask for in old Bowmore
