25 Year Old XOP Cask DL15647 | 70cl/51%
A single cask of Bowmore 1996, a 25-year-old bottled by Douglas Laing in 2022 without colouring or chill filtration for their XOP (Extra Old Particular) range.
For Bowmore 1996 25-year-old Cask DL15647 was a refill hogshead that yielded 194 bottles at a strength of 51%, and if you’ve ever had any Bowmore from the magical run of mid-1990s vintages, you’ll know what to expect-a masterclass of seaweedy coastal notes and gentle smoke, usually with plenty of sweet exotic fruit. This will be a brilliant dram.
Official Tasting Notes:
Nose: The nose immediately shows cured meats, peated barley, and a damp earth sweetness.
The fulsome palate delivers Islay in a bottle – seaweed, charred oak, and streaky bacon – balanced by a sweet, moreish character.
Finish: The finish goes on and on and on with much of what went before.
