Review: Signatory (distilled at Bowmore), 11 year old

May 6th, 2011

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.

Advanced Malt Advocate magazine rating: 83

    is this from the “ucf collection”. i assume so from the 46% abv, unless signatory has moved to 46% for their non-cs vintage releases too.

    This sounds real nice to me. It’s not always easy to find a good straightforward, unprententious, bourbon casked Bowmore.

    And more wallet friendly than the Tempest.
