On the island of Islay on the west coast of Scotland, only 114km west of Glasgow there lies The Bowmore distillery, Scotland`s oldest distillery which dates back to 1779. The island itself covers just over 600 square kilometres and a large part of the land mass is peat… which is what makes this whisky so unique and worth every penny of the £6,000 price tag!
`Defined as an Islay malt – a malt classification all to itself given the famous and challenging nature of Islay malts characterised by smoky, marine aromas and palate. Golden honey in appearance it has a rush of fruity and floral aromas which work in perfect harmony with delicately smoked oak chips and a long and luxurious finish`.
This is the first time since the Queen came to visit in the 80`s that Morrison Bowmore have brewed a single malt which is matured in bourbon with a percentage in Oloroso sherry casks.
