Islay, the Queen of the Hebrides, is known for its breathtaking scenery, rugged coastline and roaring gales, but perhaps most of all for its whisky.
Bowmore’s celebrated Single Malt has been distilled on this magical island, off the west coast of Scotland, ever since 1779. This makes Bowmore the first of Islay’s eight distilleries by chronology certainly (and by taste too, many would say).
Produced the same way today as it has always been and matured to perfection in Bowmore’s legendary No. 1 Vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level, Bowmore is widely acknowledged to be among the finest and most perfectly balanced Single Malts in the world.
Exquisitely balanced, even by Bowmore’s standards, our highly acclaimed 25 Years Old has matured in an inspired combination of both North American bourbon barrels and Spanish sherry casks and now exhibits the finest qualities of each, developed over a quarter of a century.
On the eye deep, rich mahogany
Breathe in intense sherry and stewed fruits, with a trace of Bowmore smokiness
Sip delicious toffee and hazelnut, woven together with just a hint of sweet peat smoke
Savour the mellow, gentle and incredibly complex finish.
