Day 107 Drink: Bowmore 18 Year Old Islay Single Malt
Bowmore Distillery, located on Loch Indaal, has been making whisky since 1779. The distillery still produces floor malted barley that is hand turned.
Bowmore 18 Year Old Single Malt is a warm mahogany color and has a nice peaty nose. There is a good level of wood and just a hint of the sea to this single malt. The flavor has a bit of dark fruit at the start, cocoa and ample smoke, although a bit less then the aroma would have indicated. The whisky opens with a little time in the glass.
