BOWMORE® ISLAY SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY LAUNCHES
- BOWMORE TEMPEST 4 -
THE FOURTH IN THE AWARD WINNING SERIES OF SMALL BATCH,
CASK STRENGTH SINGLE MALTS

Bowmore Tempest 4 bottle and outerBowmore, Islay’s first Single Malt whisky, has announced the highly anticipated launch of Tempest 4. This complex and rewarding dram is non-chill-filtered and aged for a decade in first fill bourbon casks. A true product of its environment - wild, raw and untamed – each mouthful is as fresh as Islay’s bracing sea-air with wisps of peat smoke and sweet citrus. Less than 2,000 cases have been released worldwide, priced
at £49.99 RRP in the UK, 55.1% ABV.

As with each of the Tempest series of small batch releases, Tempest 4 presents subtle nuances whilst retaining Bowmore’s unique quality – perfect balance. Thanks to a decade maturing in the legendary No 1 Vaults, the oldest in Scotland, Tempest 4’s tastes more textured and fresh than many other Islay Scotches with a mouth-filling minerality and a long, salty finish.

Master Blender Rachel Barrie describes the dram as “Effervescent waves of citrus and ocean spice, tempered by warm ripples of smooth vanilla and wispy smoke".

“It's like being out on a boat in the ocean waves, with bracing sea air, ocean spices and salty drizzle sharpening the senses and clearing the mind," said Barrie. "As you get closer to shore, the bright sun breaks through the clouds bringing a satisfying warmth, rewarding you with sun-drenched fruit and vanilla sweetness."

Completing the experience, Barrie suggests a unique food pairing that fuses sweet and savoury. "Vanilla
ice cream, olive oil drizzle and a sprinkle of sea-salt served with mandarin and pistachio meringue.
Tempest 4 is available from May.

TASTING NOTES:
On the eye deep amber gold. Breathe in menthol and sweet coconut fused with toasted vanilla and an ocean breeze. As the liquid ebbs and flows, ripe oranges and kumquat burst from the glass with cedar wood. Sip bursts of tangy ripe clementines, lemon sherbet and grapefruit. Deeper layers of peppery peat, pistachio and pine nuts are carried by a wave of smooth vanilla.

Savour rippling layers of citrus, bourbon vanilla spice and wispy smoke. Add a splash of water and Tempest explodes with flavour releasing tangy seaweed tempered by sweet vanilla ice cream and sugared almonds.

The latest Bowmore Tempest release follows previous award-winning Tempest batches, which include Tempest 2, which won Best Islay Single Malt 2011 at the World Whisky Awards and Tempest 1 which was awarded Gold at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in 2010.
