Review: Signatory (distilled at Bowmore), 11 year old
Signatory (distilled at Bowmore), 11 year old, 1999 vintage, 46%, $55
Aged in a used bourbon barrel. Rather soft for Bowmore — especially for its age — with a gentle foundation of honey, vanilla, and malt. Interwoven notes of summer fruit, coconut, lime, and gentle peat, with teasing brine and smoke on the finish. A straightforward, unpretentious, pleasant Bowmore.
