The Bowmore Distillery was founded in 1779 and is positioned on the beautiful rugged shores of Loch Indaal in the town of Bowmore. The distillery is owned by the new partnership of Beam Suntory and produces over 2 million litres of spirit each year. This Islay distillery, still to this day, retains the traditional floor method of malting barley allowing the distillery to offer a very unique product. Bowmore single malt is loved all over the world due to a very special peaty salty flavour is has on the palate. The whiskies they produce are of great charm and perhaps not as well noticed as some other whiskies on the island but they have plenty of peat smoke and a refreshing finish.
Did you know? The Bowmore Distillery converted one of its warehouses into the villages swimming pool. They used the waste heat from the distillery to warm the waters, this allowed for a very pleasant swim.
All of Adelphi’s independently bottled Bowmore’s have been very tasty indeed. This single cask offering drawn from cask number 2411 has been distilled in 1997 and bottled 19 years later in 2017. After spending its entire life maturing in an ex-sherry cask we find that only a limited number of bottles have been produced. 545 to be exact and this was for the worldwide whisky market.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: New leather and whiffs of rum soaked raisins. Plenty of Sherry character that’s to be expected but mixing with sea salty air.
Palate: Raisins and sultanas, white pepper and plenty of cereals. Lots of mouth-coating oils deliver hints of rum, sherry and bursting with spice.
Finish: An enormous finish of sweetness and delicious oak with plenty of smoke.
