Braeval 20YO Cask Strength by Hart BrothersJune 9, 2020
Quick review of Bowmore 10 year old single malt whisky Inspired by the Devil’s Casks Series. I had a quick sample of this in a whisky tasting at my friend’s cabin. So bare with me on these tasting notes, those were assembled quite fast.
This whisky is a mixture of classic Islay coastal notes in a marriage between Oloroso sherry butts and red wine barriques. Bottled for travel retail at 46% alcohol by volume level.
Marriage of Ex-Sherry and Ex-Wine casks
Nose: Sherry and peat dominate. Plums and spices mixed in together.
Taste: Dark fruits, sherry and leather.
Finish: Plums and peat smoke. Oranges and raisins.
Balance: Easy to approach, usual Bowmore characteristics in a sweet package.
Distillery: Bowmore Region: Islay
