Matured in inspired combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it's the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives this whisky, one of the most beautifully balanced Bowmores, the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, and its warming finish.
It is a pristine dark amber colour. Delightful dark chocolate aromatics with a whiff of sun-dried fruits and Islay smoke leaves your mouth watering before the first sip. Rich treacle toffee and cedar flavours and a complex finish with hints of sherry tannin.
Founded over two centuries ago in 1779, Bowmore is the first recorded distillery on Islay (pronounced ‘eye-la’) and one of the oldest in the whole of Scotland. Islay malts are renowned for their peaty smokiness and Bowmore is no exception. They carefully smoke our malt in a peat-fired kiln, just as their ancestors did over 200 years ago.
