Tasting Notes – Bowmore 15 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish
Discover delicious dark chocolate, sun dried fruits, a wisp of Islay peat smoke, cedar wood and treacle toffee – from Bowmore.
Founded over two centuries ago in 1779, the distillery was the first recorded distillery on the island of Islay (pronounced ‘eye-la’) and is one of the oldest in the whole of Scotland. Islay malts are renowned for their peaty smokiness and Bowmore is no exception. The distillery carefully smokes it’s malt in a peat-fired kiln, just as its ancestors did over 200 years ago.
Bowmore the place and Bowmore’s Single Malt share many claims to fame. Bowmore was the first planned village in the country, founded in 1768 and the distillery produced its first Islay Malt 11 years later in 1779.
You will find the distillery on the shores of Loch Indaal, a sea loch that opens out into the Atlantic Ocean. Its proximity to the sea plays a vital role in shaping the final character of our spirit, which breathes in the salty sea air all the while it’s maturing.
