Nose

Открытый, резкий, залитые водой угли костра, пепел, зола, морские нотки, лимон, растворитель, отбеливатель, дуб, лёгкие лаковые нотки, постепенно начинает проявляться влияние бурбонных бочек, столярная мастерская, ваниль, солод, мокрое зерно.

Taste

Мощная кисло-сладкая волна с перцем, апельсины, персики, кумкваты, мягкий пряный дуб, лимонад, минеральная вода, фруктово-цитрусовая феерия, карамельная сладость, очень бурное (кстати да, в полном соответствии с названием :)) развитие, фонтан свежести.

Finish

Пряное, дубовое, приятно согревающее, имбирный чай, корка лимона, карамель.

Comments

Приятная неожиданность, по аромату ожидался очередной стандартно-однообразный новый бомо с повышенной крепостью , но вкус сразу же перевернул всё с ног на голову взрывом цитрусово-фруктовой бомбы - прекрасно; финиш плавно завершающий, приглушающий напор вкуса для захода на следующий глоток, а тут и аромат начинает раскрываться и показывать свои новые грани.

[November, 2009]  I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Bonn.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a surprisingly fruity profile that reminded me (a little bit) of that delicious sixties/early seventies Bowmore style.  In fact, this style was completely lost during the horrable years at Bowmore (forget about almost all Bowmore bottlings from 1980-1988). 

But this dram re-established my trust into Bowmore as a great distillery again...

There is no accounting for taste...

Nose

清新的泥煤和著青草、辛香料,煙燻隱藏、麥香、柑橘,也帶著隱約的焦糖香。

The fresh grass and peat appear at the beginning then spices but soft, smoke, citrus, dry malt with a hint of caramel.

Taste

入口明顯檸檬或柑橘醬,海風鹼味明顯接著煙燻漸瀰漫,油脂豐富,或許有些木桶丹寧辛香。

Palate is clear lemon or orange jam, the salty sea breeze obviously then gradually filled with smoke. The grease offers on the tongue, and spicy of barrel tannins... maybe.

Finish

Bowmore的煙燻風格持續,柳橙酸甜、木桶丹寧、核桃堅果甘甜悠遠。

The style of Bowmore smoke is sustained, sweet orange, barrels tannins, walnuts nuts dry, sweet to the end.

Comments

味道層次結構分明,豐富的新鮮水果與波本的香草風味,尾韻適中。

The hierarchy of flavor is clear, and the fresh fruit with some bourbon vanilla taste, the finish are moderate.

Bowmore 10 yo 'Tempest' (56.3%, OB, first fill bourbon, Batch #1, 2009)Star4.5.jpg Colour: gold. Nose: punchy, clean, crisp, peaty, coastal, mineral and slightly lemony. Not aggressive, flawless – so far. With water: this is interesting, it gets rather more spirity and aggressive when diluted, as if water had unleashed some kind of tincture or iodine and mercurochrome (is that the ‘tempest’?). But it’s soon to calm down, getting more complex, with aromas that are usually to be found in much older Islayers, such as camphor and pu-erh tea. Mouth (neat): the most superb combination of peat, lemon, pepper and iodine that one could taste, with a few spices from the oak in the background (the usual nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger). It’s no overly complex whisky but once again, the balance is impressive. And it’s so drinkable at cask strength! With water: once again, complexity arrives with water. More herbs and even pine resin, the only thing that’s just a tad disturbing is a slight ‘new oak’ note (a little too much ginger/nutmeg for my taste). But that’s nothing. Finish: long, clean and perfectly balanced once again. And very fresh. Maybe a tad sweeter than before (marmalade?) Comments: it’s great that the Distillery joined the many independents who already issued superb young clean Bowmores in recent times, even if this Tempest is a little sweeter than most. A lovable 10yo. SGP:457 - 88 points.

BOWMORE TEMPEST 10yo / 55.3%


強めのシトラス、レモンやオレンジの際立つフルーツ、ホワイトチョコやカスタードクリーム、落ち着い


て花や心地良い潮風、軽く土っぽさとビターチョコ、微かにピートの香り。


シトラスやオレンジのフルーツ、厚みのある甘さとバランスをとるしっかりした苦味、はっきりと感じる


マンゴーの味わい。


程よくパワフルでスパイシー、マンゴーと柑橘フルーツ、チョコレートっぽいフィニッシュ。



テンペスト(嵐や暴風)と言う名のファーストフィルバーボンカスク、スモールバッチリリースの


現行ボウモア、見直しました。オフィシャル10年熟成としては素晴らしいレベル。


2杯目以降はマンゴーフレーバーが如実で美味い!


香り、味わいともに時間経過による変化を感じさせ、10年という若さを感じさせない複雑さ。


3倍ほどの価格差はあるものの、外すことがないとはいえ特徴や個性もあまり感じさせない、現行12年よりもこちらをチョイスするべきではないかと・・・(個人の勝手な意見ですけど)


所謂アイラの特徴(ピートやヨード香)を強調せず、賛否を呼んだパヒュームも皆無。


これなら「これがボウモアです。」とこれから味わう方にもお勧めでき、多くの方と共有したい味わいです。

Nose

Fresh peat, vegetal, white pepper and smoke. A bit sharp and malty. Citrussy too, with a touch of honey and white chocolate.

Taste

Peat smoke, earthy. Lots of citrus, mostly lemon. Salt and pepper, wood spices also.

Finish

Salt, lemon and smoke. Fairly long.

Comments

If you're into light and fresh Islay-style whisky, than you'll enjoy the Tempest. This is a good whisky, priced just above entry-level whiskies, but so much better.

Nose: Smoke and peat, o’course. Chocolate. Coffee. Cracked pepper. Orange and Lemon. Some notes that aren’t far off from an Ardbeg. Caramel and pear. Some unexpected creaminess. Baked Alaska.

Palate: Sweet candy arrival, through smoke and into licorice. A lot of fresh squeezed citrus and more cracked pepper. Either very active bourbon casks leveeing these spicy notes, or a bit of sherry influence. Either way…crackling with nifty ‘Pop Rock’ surprises. There’s an earthiness here that hints at Garden Burgers, interestingly enough.

Thoughts: Hmmm…much like many first editions of named releases, I have a sneaking suspician this was a ‘best foot forward malt’. (Read: there are some older, better casks in here than we’ll see in future editions.) Great balance.
