THE ART OF MATURATION SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY BENCHMARK
BOWMORE AGED 15 YEAR – Distilled 2001
Founded in 1779, Bowmore is the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Islay. Its delicately peated, well-balanced spirit has been an inspiration for many a whisky lover for many years. This Bowmore single malt has been matured for its final four years in a fresh port pipe.
THE ART OF MATURATION
Originally matured in a 500-litre sherry cask to give slow, gentle maturation.
The European oak gives the spirit a soft oaky spiciness and dried fruit flavours.
After seven years maturing in the Sherry butt, the Murray McDavid Whisky Creations Team transferred the whisky into a freshly emptied first-fill Port wine cask, or ‘pipe’.
The rich, sweet, fruity Port gives additional depth of flavour and further increases the smoky character of this classic Islay peated malt.
