Bowmore Dusk (Bordeaux Wine Casked) / 50% – Bowmore Dusk was a follow-up to 1999 release of Bowmore Claret, introduced the following year. Both whiskies underwent finishing maturation in ex-Claret casks. While Bowmore Claret was a one-off edition limited to 12 000 bottles, Dusk remained part of the distillery range until 2007. The whisky spent about 2 years in ex-Claret casks (as an addition to main period of aging in traditional oak casks), carried no age statement and was bottled at 50% abv.
Nose: very rich and nicely balanced, apples, rose petals, grapes, linseed, smoky and grassy notes and a hint of leather.
Palate: rich and soft, red fruits, almonds, vanilla, lemon grass, pepper, with peat smoke ever present in the background.
Finish: long and warming, smoky, a mélange of fruity sweetness and oaky dryness.
