That Boutique-Y Whiskey Co. Bowmore 15 Year 375 ml.
The Bowmore 15 Year. NOT the 19 Year that shares the same label.
The massively well-loved Bowmore distillery has resided on the Isle of Islay since 1779 – it’s the oldest Islay whisky distillery and it’s still going even today! The distillery is home to its very own malting floor, an eight ton stainless steel mash tun, six wash backs and two pairs of stills, which actually produce enough heat not only to make their lovely peated whisky, but the waste heat from the stills heats the nearby pool! The label features a young lad with a freshly-swiped bra from the pool’s changing rooms legging it from one of the pool’s lifeguards.
Nose: Instant oaky smoke, cocoa nibs, underlying hints of red fruits and cream.
Taste: Peaty and smoky with dry ashy flavours. Warming spices emerge.
Finish: Cinnamon, allspice and a long, dry finish.
