25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
A joyful union of delicious toffee and hazelnut, bound together by sweet peat smoke. A 25 year old from the Bowmore distillery aged in American bourbon and Spanish sherry casks. The sherry influence combines wonderfully with the coastal, smoky distillery style to create a sublime aged single malt. Loch Indaal is not a lake, it is a large bay carved into the west coast of the island of Islay. Bowmore sits on the southern shore of that Bay, directly across from Bruichladdich in the north. The Distillery is in Bowmore the town, which is the capital of the island district.

About the brand
Bowmore Single Malt whisky was officially established in 1779 by local merchant John Simson, making it one of the first distilleries on Islay to ever receive license to legally produce whisky. As with many other Scottish distilleries, it’s likely that Simson had been distilling on the grounds for a number of years before that – probably since his arrival in 1766. The Bowmore distillery which lies on the South Eastern shore of Loch Indaal, is owned by Morrison Bowmore Distillers Ltd, which is part of the Japanese Suntory portfolio. As an Islay distillery, Bowmore’s whisky is peated and holds the unmistakable characteristics of an Islay Malt. However, its notes lean more towards smoke and sweeter sugars rather than of peat and seaweed. Despite its location on the banks of Loch Indaal in central Islay, Bowmore’s water comes from the river Laggan, where it flows after completing a 19-kilometer journey starting in limestone and sandstone hills on the east coast, and then picking up heather from the hills and peat in the Islay bogs. Such water produces a light and subtle whisky with a good balance of mineral and vegetal. After its opening in 1779, it wasn’t long before Simson passed the ownership of Bowmore to the Mutter family in 1837, who held onto ownership of the flourishing distillery until 1892. The Mutters were originally ‘scientific’ farmers whose focus was improving cultivation on the island. As a result they are reported to have improved the distillery, honing distilling practices and the flow of necessary elements to the site. The distillery was then bought from the Mutter family in 1925 by J.B. Sheriff & Co. and remained under their ownership until being purchased by Inverness-based William Grigor & Son, Ltd. in 1950. Although Morrison substantially rebuilt and renovated much of the distillery, he retained the original floor maltings and traditional whisky production methods which are still in use to this day. Winner of a whole host of awards, Bowmore has been named Distillery of the Year multiple times, and various expressions have also been recognized with Double Gold Awards at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Truly yes. Worth each penny. Astounding flavor include profundity. Second jug I've purchased and it won't be the last. I do see it vanishes a touch rapidly though....Maybe the Jug spills ;)

Gee peat nutts vanilla marginally sulfuric/tanninic sherry. At first I thought marginally overwooded. Not at all like a few measures where the things that bug me get increasingly conspicuous this bourbon I subside into to an ever increasing extent. Prunes dim organic product intriguing measure. It's acceptable yet I'm marginally torn on how great I believe it's one you truly need a container to work through after some time maybe. Its more mind boggling and has more profundity than the 18 from memory yet not secure with the equalization of specific angles. Before the end I was thinking certainly a 4.25.

The best Bowmore I've tasted. Lean and smooth and some Sherry notes. A smidgen of smoke hits you to.
