Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - (UB Collection,Finalist)- Lovely, light-catching golden straw color bedazzles the viewer. The aromatics build with aeration as the first scents of malt, oatmeal, breakfast cereal expand into tidal waves of campfire smoke, tobacco, old leather books, salted fish. Flavors of sea air, saltine cracker, Graham cracker, dried flowers, and marzipan abound deep in to the satisfying aftertaste. A monumental malt. (Mar 2015)
Cosseted away in the finest, hand-selected oak casks and allowed to mature at its own sedate pace, this is one of the most remarkable, perfectly balanced malts of its kind. One of our rarest most exceptional bottlings, the stocks of Bowmore 18 Years Old may be limited but there’s no end to its enjoyment.
|Bowmore’s celebrated Single Malt has been distilled on this jewel of an island, the Queen of the Hebrides, ever since 1779. This makes it the first of Islay’s eight distilleries chronologically speaking (and by taste too, many would say). Now, as then, Bowmore is widely acknowledged to be among the finest and most perfectly balanced single malts in the world.
