Signatory 11 year old 1999 vintage (distilled at Bowmore), 46%

Price: $55 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: John Hansell

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.
