The nose is classic Bowmore fruit, malt and subtle peat, with a lovely muted Sherry influence. A greater smokiness develops with time. Sweet and fruity on the palate, with smokiness and underlying peat, typical of aged Bowmore. The finish is longer and drier. According to the distillers, this expression contains a higher percentage of Oloroso Sherry cask-matured Bowmore, married for longer to give greater depth and complexity, while retaining the fruity flavours. A delightful, complex and confident whisky.
Bowmore Distillery, one of the oldest in Scotland, has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal, on the Hebridean Island of Islay, since 1779 (and quite possibly for a few years before that). This makes Bowmore the first ever distillery on the island (well, legal distillery anyway).
They are one of only a few distilleries anywhere which still produces its own floor malted barley, hand-turned by traditional wooden malt shovel. Their whiskies draw water from the Laggan River, with its rich peaty overtones, and it's the same Islay peat that fires the malt drying kiln.
The famous Bowmore No. 1 vaults is where most of the Bowmore whiskies spend their long lives resting quietly in the cool, dark, damp cellars below sea level, oblivious to the waves thrashing the vault's sea-facing wall. They mature in oak casks, previously used for bourbon, sherry or claret, gradually developing rich and mellow flavours. It's this combination of peat, barley, sea breeze, water, wood, people and tradition that together create the subtle, warm and smoky character of Bowmore single malt whiskies.
