So much whisky, so little time | Singapore | Tasting Notes

Bowmore 10 yo Devil’s Cask Batch 1 56.9% vs Bowmore 10 yo Devils Cask Batch 2 56.3%

Bowmore 10 yo Devil’s Cask Batch 1 56.9%

There’s the 90s Bowmore lime leaf, hot chalk and seared pans. Salt, also cypress and cedar, in fact it is very aromatically woody without feeling tannic. Black pepper, plum jam, incense, raw bark, open kilns white ash, mincemeat and liquorice. It’s massive flavour bomb of a whisky but I can’t shake a sense of disjointedness. Wants better integration. 86 pts

Bowmore 10 yo Devils Cask Batch 2 56.3%

Less intense. Here the lime leaf and hot mineral notes are much reduced, and we have more black smoke and salt, robust earthy muddiness, overall a calmer expression. We get the same dry aromatic woods but the tannins are bigger, on the other hand the spices are sweeter too with clove and aniseed. Mustard, jam, brown sugar, black pepper, burnt wood, char, licorice, Kiwi black, hints of dunnage funk. This one is less defined,’wider’ I say, compared to the intensity of the first batch. 84 pts
