A limited edition with the distillery source "hidden" (explanation below). Distilled 2000, bottled 2012 and limited to 1720 bottles.Other reviews... Long noted as one of the most respected independent bottler of single malts, Elgin-based Gordon & MacPhail has nevertheless had to resort to releasing a number of expressions in its Secret Stills range when distillers have refused permission for their names to appear on the labels. The range includes a 1955 Talisker, a brace of Cragganmores from the 1960s, two Auchentoshans from 1989 and three variants of Bowmore. The bottle may not proclaim "Bowmore", but when the back label declares that the contents was distilled in "the oldest distillery on Islay" it hardly requires Miss Marple to uncover the "secret still" involved. The third release comprises whisky from four ex-Sherry hogsheads. The nose is filled with bonfire embers, smoked fish and smoked tea, with a pleasingly contrasting, sweet, heather honey note. Full bodied on the palate, again there is a lovely, contrasting interplay, this time between sweet fruits and medicinal, salty, bitter chocolate. The finish is long and slowly drying, with peat smoke and sweet honey notes. Bowmore is always well served by Sherry wood, and this is a fine example of a really well balanced and satisfying expression. 45.0% ABV. 3.5 stars - www.whisky-pages.com
