Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Honeysuckle and lemon zest fill the glass followed by more delicate aromas of smoke, ripe peach and ripe plum. Exquisitely honeyed in the mouth and offering notes of vanilla, smoke, cedar along with subtle flavors of toasted oat and ripe apricot. The finish is wonderfully long and smooth. (Mar 2013)
Established in 1779, Bowmore Distillery is on of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and nestles on the shores of Loch Indaai on the Inner Hebridean Isle of Islay. Bowmore is universally regarded as the best balanced of all the Islay malts characterised by its wonderfully rich and complex flavors. Earthy and lemony with nice long finish.
|A simply beautiful nose marrying scents of sweet malt, wild flowers, honey, kumquat, and campfire. Perfectly balanced offering sweet fruity and cocoa notes with dry smoke, brown spices and pepper. Bright and fresh while mature and sophisticated.
|Bowmore’s celebrated Single Malt has been distilled on this jewel of an island, the Queen of the Hebrides, ever since 1779. This makes it the first of Islay’s eight distilleries chronologically speaking (and by taste too, many would say). Now, as then, Bowmore is widely acknowledged to be among the finest and most perfectly balanced single malts in the world.
