Review by Bowmore

Colour

Warm gold.

Nose

Vanilla fudge, sea air and peat smoke, balanced beautifully by honeycomb and cinnamon spice.

Palate

Mouth-watering citrus, gentle saltiness and vanilla with flakes of coconut.

Finish

Wispy smoke, bourbon vanilla and lime finish.

Note

Exclusively matured in first and second fill ex bourbon casks, then blissfully married together, Small Batch Reserve exhibits the best qualities of both. First-fill bourbon offers delicious vanilla sweetness, subtle spices and bourbon oak smoke to complement Bowmore's gentle peaty smokiness, while the second-fill cask enhances Bowmore's fresh fruity complexity and showcases its trademark honey and creamy malt character.
