The Details

In a Nutshell

Dark chocolate, dried fruits & a hint of smoke. Rounded with cedar wood & rich, treacle toffee.

Tasting Notes

Rich deep amber in colour. On the nose delicious dark chocolate, sun-dried fruits and a hint of Islay smoke. The palate displays notes of cedar wood and rich treacle toffee.

Production Notes

A unique combination of the purest water from the Laggan River, floor-malted barley, carefully smoked in a peat-fired kiln. After distillation the spirit is left to mature in the famous No. 1 Vaults - The oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level, its dark, damp and cold conditions are perfect for maturing whisky. Aged in a combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, with the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that give this malt a rich, deep colour. Bowmore is one of an ever decreasing handful of distilleries to produce its own floor malted barley. Every four hours, the barley is hand turned by the Maltmen using traditional tools, just as it has always been. It's an expensive laborious process by modern standards, but one that's well worth preserving judged by the results.

Producer - Bowmore Distillery
