Bowmore Tempest 10 (Batch 4/Dorus Mor)

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 55.1%
Score: 92 points

This is sold as Tempest everywhere except the U.S., where it’s known as Dorus Mor for legal reasons. The nose has a nice smokiness with spearmint and menthol notes, briny wet sand, seaweed, and a touch of smoked salmon. The taste is mouth-coating sweet at first, followed by a crashing wave of brine and smoke, then turning lemon-line, and orange with a hint of vanilla. The finish lingers with subtle hints of brine and smoke.
