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 washbacks 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: Orchard fruits open, fresh with a hint of blossom too. Gentle peat smoke wafts on a salty breeze
Palate: The sweetness of the orchard fruits linger behind a driftwood beach bonfire, smoke builds and hints of salinity remain
Finish: Hints of dark chocolate with a whisper of refined oak and buttery vanilla.
