Bowmore 10 year old Tempest

Aged: 10 years, first fill Bourbon casks

Colour: light sparkling gold

Strength: 55.3%

Price bracket: around £40

Best for: an excellent night in with your finest friends

Nose: sweet toffees and cream, oak and summer fruits laced with a tantalising hint of exotic fruit

Taste: a knockout whirlwind of thick wood smoke and spice with a monster black pepper hit in there, tinged with sea salt and a splendid sweetness in the aftertaste that makes a top up all but irresistible

Verdict: with only 2000 cases this is an absolute bloody classic ­– snap some up while you still can
