Bowmore 12YO Islay Scotch Whisky 700ml
 

Bowmore Islay 12 Year Old is a single malt Scotch Whisky from the second oldest distillery in Scotland, dating back to 1779. Proud producers of a highly regarded and broad range of single malt Scottish Whiskies, the Bowmore distillery has gained a reputation for itself as one of the world's best Scotch brands, owing thanks to the smoky Bowmore Islay 12 Year Old Whisky.

With a rigid adherence to time-honoured distilling traditions, the beautifully articulated Bowmore 12 Year Old comes from one of the only distilleries that has continued to malt its own barley and hand-turn it with a traditional wooden malt shovel. The Bowmore Islay 12 Year Old then rests in the distilleries iconoclastic seaside vault in the finest Spanish and American oak casks, maturing to perfection below sea level with the help of the salty, sea-laden air.

Bowmore 18YO Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
 
"Amazingly complex offering notes of caramel, wild flowers, malt, peat smoke, and dried fruits. Luxuriously textured being wonderfully viscous while vibrant and never cloying as the rich fruit and decadent sweet malt notes evolve to spice and smoke with toasted grains. An absolute gem!" - Ultimate Beverage Challenge 2012. 
 
A popular expression in Bowmore'€™s ongoing range, the Bowmore Islay 18 year old single malt Scotch Whisky was launched in January of 2007 to replace the 17 year old. A perfumed, fruity offering from the Islay distillery. 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 the distilleries rarest most exceptional bottlings, the stocks of Bowmore 18 Years Old may be limited but there's no end to its enjoyment! Founded over two centuries ago in 1779, Bowmore is the first recorded distillery on Islay and one of the oldest in the whole of Scotland. Islay malts are renowned for their peaty smokiness and Bowmore is no exception. They carefully smoke their malt in a peat-fired kiln, just as their ancestors did over 200 years ago.
