Bowmore Tempest V arrives

25 June, 2014

Suntory has launched Bowmore Tempest V, the fifth in the Tempest series.

Non-chill-filtered and aged for ten years in first fill bourbon casks, Tempest V has an abv of 55.9% and a recommended retail price of £46.99.

Stores stocking the new expression include Royal Mile Whiskies, Whisky Exchange, Harrods and Arkwright’s Whisky + Wine.

Rachel Barrie, master blender said: “It is Bowmore matured in the very highest quality of first fill ex bourbon casks, revealing harmonious and enveloping layers of honeycomb, rich bourbon vanilla and ripening fruits carried on an ocean breeze.

“Tempest V’s highly complex layers of silky smooth vanilla and luscious fruit-infused peatiness transport you to the elemental beauty of Islay.”
