BOWMORE 18 ans 2003 Edition No.74 Whisky Sponge D.D.


Quantity limited to 1 bottle.

A single Refill Sherry cask from Bowmore, distilled in 2003, and spent more than a year out of the wood before being placed back into a second-fill Sherry cask. It was 18 years old at the time of bottling at cask strength. This is the same cask as the Bowmore 17-year-old bottled in Whisky Sponge Edition No. 50, except this time it benefited from an additional year of aging and, being the last cask from this parcel, it was bottled at natural cask strength. This cask is not as heavily influenced by Sherry as its sibling. It’s a more exuberant, modern Bowmore with fruity notes and beautiful hints of mild, dry peat smoke. There’s a great coastal freshness and a mineral character, along with lighter notes of leather, tar, and eucalyptus due to the Sherry influence. Gorgeous, powerful, finely crafted, and complex. Decadent Drinks is an independent bottler of whisky and other spirits. Angus MacRaild – also the author of the WhiskySponge blog – is the founder. His philosophy is about quality, enjoyment, and not taking life too seriously. This whimsical approach is reflected in both his blog and the labels of his bottlings featuring the Sponge character in various forms. These bottlings, mostly single casks, are divided among different brands like Spongeverse, Equinox & Solstice, and Equilibrium. The Spongeverse includes WhiskySponge, RumSponge, CognacSponge, ArmagnacSponge, and WineSponge.

Tasting Notes

: The characteristic exotic fruits of Bowmore are immediately present, followed by a sweet and salty Sherry note that is also coastal, fresh, and citrusy. Elegant peat smoke notes follow. Magnificent!

Palate : Once again, fruits take the forefront, with more pronounced peat smoke, intensified salty and coastal notes. Wonderful flavors of minerals, citrus, and some robust hints of smoky beers and dried seaweed.

Finish : Very long, exotic, and coastal with a complex mix of smoke, seaweed, and citrus zest.
