Amidst the wild beauty of Islay, the rough seas and winds of the Hebrides, Bowmore has been handcrafted since 1779. In the legendary "No. 1 Vault", the old stone vault on the edge of Loch Indaal, the magical character of Islay and centuries-old traditions combine to create a single malt whisky with complex balance, mild Islay smokiness, maritime minerality and a wealth of fresh stone fruit flavours. An exquisitely balanced single malt matured for 25 years in North American bourbon and Spanish sherry casks. A whisky that should be enjoyed slowly. Tasting notes:Colour: Soft mahogany. Nose: stewed fruit, intense sherry, hint of smoke. Taste: Creamy sweets, toffee, hazelnuts, hint of sweet peat smoke. Finish: Long lasting, smooth, complex.
