Bowmore

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 malt in a peat-fired kiln just as their ancestors did over 200 years ago!

Tasting Notes

The 15 Bowmore starts life in ex bourbon barrel but spends the last 3 years of its life in an Olorosso sherry butt. The result is the classic Bowmore, salty, briny, seaweed nose with a distinct peaty flavour but the palate has wonderful fruity character and spice brought on by the sherry influence. Complex, multi-layered and hugely satisfying.

Food Matches

This whisky can handle the big flavours of a venison Stew with juniper berries and roquito peppers.
