Bowmore 25 YO 1987 Raw Cask, 49,9% (Blackadder)
And yet again it’s time for a 25-year old Bowmore and this time it’s from Blackadder and their Raw Cask range. It’s a 1987 Vintage, distilled December 8 1987, before it took a rest in a oak hogshead #2822. 242 bottles are available of this Bowmore that’s bottled at cask strength 49,9% ABV. As always with Blackadder Raw Cask there’s no added colours and no chill-filtration.
Some sweet tones together with some vanilla and a lovely smoky scent.
An oily floral taste with some vanilla and toffee, all together with a great smokiness.
A quite long and sweet finish with a great touch of salt, along with the smoke.
The age together with the distillery tells you pretty much what to expect. It’s not the best the best Bowmore I’ve tasted but pretty close to it. All the great smokiness together with the sweet and floral notes makes this dram a killer. A great choice of cask by Blackadder.
