Bowmore Straight From The Cask 1997 ex Sherry Review

Bowmore Ex sherry Cask Part of the Bowmore tasting in No1 Vaults with Eddie MacAffer after our tour during the #IslayRoadTrip with Steve (@steveprentice) from Somerset Whisky Blog and Jon (@dvdbloke) from Scotch and Sci-fi

After our really in depth and knowledgable tour with Eddie we stopped into the No1 Vaults for a quick dram valinched straight from the cask as we then moved onto this 1997 (17 year old) ex sherry cask.

Thanks again to Eddie at Bowmore for the awesome and in depth tour and for the wonderful tasting.

Tasting Notes & Details


initially i'm struck by quite strong note of jammy goodness with sweet and gentle stewed mixed fruits of redcurrant and plum and hint of light wood smoke again in the background


gentle red currants and plum with sugary fruits mix with hints of smoke and toffee


theres a bit of a kick of spice on the finish here.
