As the world’s oldest scotch maturation house, Bowmore’s legendary No.1 Vaults is the birthplace of coveted and collectable whiskies including the new Vintner’s Trilogy. The second in the trilogy, Bowmore 26 Year Old Wine Matured spends time in ex-bourbon barrels and wine barriques, developing a burnt amber colour.

- Tasted at:
- Gently smoky with farmyard notes, wine, berries (black currant), a touch of sulfur, some pineapple, dark chocolate, orange peel. Water opens up more berries in a jam form as well as sulfur.
- Sweet, spicy (white pepper and ginger), noticeably oaky, slightly smoky, berry jam, some tropical fruits, citrus peel.
- Rather long, slightly oaky, smoky and salty, a bit sweet, leathery
- Good whisky but to be honest I expected much more, especially for this price (350-400€). Nice and quite complex nose, which is just a bit spoiled by sulfur, leaves really good impression. However, the palate is slightly unbalanced towards the oaky side.The aftertaste is pleasant and here it’s probably the best tasting stage.
